Razor Rob vs. Jamie Varner in February

In early September, WEC lightweight champ “Razor” Rob McCullough announced on the TAGG Radio show that he’d be making his next title defense against hard-hitting Massachusetts native Alex Karalexis, but it seems that the WEC has other plans for its 155-lb. king.

Instead, McCullough will be taking on former UFC lightweight Jamie “The Worm” Varner (13-2), who’s defeated Sharron Legget and Jason Gilliam in 2007.

McCullough told MMAWeekly, "I think he's a younger version of Rich (Crunkilton). I don't think his submission game is anywhere near Rich's, but he's definitely got a quick shot, and he changes levels fast. I think his gas tank is going to be questionable."

Early thoughts: Crunkilton is much more complete, dangerous fighter than Varner, so I expect another TKO win for “Razor” Rob.
