He wouldn't have been saved against Cowboy however since he was decisively winning that fight.

Varner tapped in 2 seconds to an arm in guillotine. That seems a little odd, I thought it was hard to finish a choke that way, or at least not so quickly.

Varner's post fight remarks irritate me too, there are still so many fans and fighters who somehow think that striking is "more of a real fight" than grappling. Don't watch MMA then, it is not complicated.

He tapped instantly because he's mentally weak and has no heart.

Varner chose to remain standing. That was a bad position, but at least try to either:
a) suplex your opponent; or,
b) fall to the mat and attempt to roll out.

Not saying either of those would have been effective, but standing for 4 seconds and then tapping isn't a viable defense in any sense of the term.

I was thinking this as soon as he tapped. He has ZERO heart. I mean he doesn't have to go to sleep, but at least attempt to find a way out. This wasn't a throw away fight it was a title fight...

Cerrone/Bendo 2!!!

You know you're hated when you pull the "All I wanna do is bang" card and fans STILL boo you.

That tapout was weak. All in all though this was a kick ass card. I hope the WEC can keep it up. Some of their cards are easily as good as UFC cards and always free.
