Last Sunday night WEC Lightweight Champion, Jamie Varner, defended his title against “Cowboy” Donald Cerrone. For four rounds the two went back and forth making for an extremely exciting fight. In the fifth round the fight was called due to an illegal knee to the head by Cerrone and Varner left with a technical decision victory and the belt. Now it appears that Varner left the ring with much more than that.
In a recent interview with Sherdog’s Beatdown radio, Varner revealed that he received a broken hand and foot during the fight, which left him virtually unable to strike going into the final round. He is also concerned that he may have a detached retina in his eye, which may be a career ending injury for the up and coming fighter. According to the fighter he will meet with an eye doctor next week to determine the extent of the injury.
