UFC 155 Results: 5 Fights for Jamie Varner to Take Next
Gary A. Vasquez-USA TODAY Sports

Let us travel to Dec. 16, 2010. 

Jamie Varner just lost his final WEC fight to Shane Roller in the very first round, dropping his record to 0-3-1 over the course of his last four bouts. 

The draw, to Kamal Shalorus, was not a loss only because of a one-point deduction to Shalorus for illegal groin strikes. 

You have two options and you must pick one. Remember, Varner is effectively 0-4 over his last four fights. 

In 2012 Varner will either be a Wal-Mart greeter or a legitimate UFC lightweight contender at a time when the 155-pound division is more stacked than ever. 

Welcome to Wal-Mart, right? 

Amazingly, Varner finds himself firmly planted in the latter proposition, and there is no denying 2012 has been the best year of his MMA career. 

With a solid win over Melvin Guillard at UFC 155, Varner moves to 2-1 in 2012, with the sole loss coming in a Fight of the Year candidate against Joe Lauzon. 

With such momentum, Varner finds himself in a nice spot inside the lightweight division, and there are a handful of opponents who make sense for his next outing. 

Let's check them out.
