With the WEC less than a week away and all of the fights officially announced, the hype for the live Sunday, August 5th show on Versus continues tonight on MMAWeekly Radio. Damon & Jeff welcome lightweight contenders Jamie “The Worm” Varner and his opponent, Sherron Leggett.
MMA fans should be familiar with Varner after he pushed former #1 lightweight contender, Hermes Franca, late into the third round before finally being caught in an armbar. He then rebounded with a win at UFC 68 defeating Jason Gilliam. Varner has now made the move over to the WEC where he will likely be a quick contender in the growing WEC lightweight division.
His opponent, Sherron Leggett, will also join the show tonight and talk about the match-up with Varner. Leggett stepped into his WEC debut on short notice and defeated King of the Cage veteran Charlie Kohler by TKO in the 2nd round.
Leggett is currently riding a nine-fight win streak coming into the bout with Varner and should be a tough match-up for “The Worm.”
