Jamie Varner may be retiring from MMA

Former WEC lightweight Jamie Varner may be throwing in the towel on his career after his loss on Saturday night at Titan Fighting Championships 20.  Varner lost via unanimous decision against Dakota Cochrane, which triggered him to send out a tweet that said “I gave fighting another shot I need 2 thank u guys 4 ur support! But I just don’t have it anymore. Love u all but ull never c me fight again.”  The tweet was later taken down by the former WEC champ.

Varner has gone 1-4-1 since WEC 46 in January 2010.
