UFC on Fox 4 Fight of the Night Joe Lauzon and Jamie Varner’s hell fire exchanges cost Jaime Varner more than a submission loss. Varner reveals his swollen hand and tells Fuel TV post fight,
“Looks like I broke my fourth metacarpal, just broke it. You can see the knuckle’s gone. One of my right hands I landed, it was gone, it hurt pretty bad.
In the second round, I slipped his jab came over with the overhand right and I hit the top of his head, and I felt it right away.
I told my corner after the second round ‘hey, my hand’s broken,’ they’re like ‘alright, we’re going to have to take him down then.’ The takedowns worked well until I got reversed into the triangle.”
An x-ray will determine the extent of his damaged hand and the recovery time as soon as the swelling subsides.
