LAS VEGAS - Las Vegas already on lightweight Jamie Varner's itinerary, but not to fight.
His training partner, Jeremy Larsen, was scheduled to do that June 1 at
The Ultimate Fighter 15 Finale. He was a cornerman and mitt holder.
So it was convenient to Varner when his manager
called and asked whether he'd like to bump that trip to Vegas up a week
and get in the cage. It was hair-raising when that offer was for UFC
146 and against Edson Barboza.
