Jamie Varner: I could have beat Lauzon in a boring fight | UFC NEWS

August 10, 2012 8:12 am by Pedro Carrasco

“With my fighting style, I fight with reckless abandon,” said Jamie Varner reflecting on his UFC on FOX 4 loss to Joe Lauzon Saturday night. “I think that’s why I got Fight of the Night. I think that’s why people enjoy watching me fight. It’s because I don’t stop. You live by the sword, you die by the sword, unfortunately. Because I fight so hard and I scramble a lot I put myself in bad positions and I do get caught. And it sucks, but like I said, I’d rather fight hard and have people enjoy watching me fight than just always go out there and fight not to lose.”

“I could’ve beat Joe Lauzon with a jab. I could’ve ran, thrown the jab, thrown kicks, kept him away, and won a boring fight; won a boring decision. I could’ve done that in the third round too. But no, I wanted to put pressure on him. I wanted to be exciting. I wanted to go for the finish,” he explained. “I’m always looking for the finish. And unfortunately I got caught.”
