Let’s say that you’re the winner of one of the toughest combat sports in the world – World Extreme Cage Fighting, to be exact. What do you go out and do with your winnings, I wonder?
Wreck a hotel room? Stock up on throwing stars?
Apparently not, or at least not in the case of World Extreme Cage Fighting lightweight champion Jamie Varner. He went out and bought a Boston Terrier – but it wasn’t for himself.
From Canadian Press:
Varner defends his World Extreme Cagefighting lightweight title against unbeaten Marcus (Wrecking Ball) Hicks tomorrow night (TSN alternate feed, 10 p.m. AT) while Condit puts his welterweight championship on the line against Japan’s Hiromitsu Miura at WEC 35 at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas. In another title bout, light-heavyweight champion Brian Stann takes on Steve Cantwell.
Varner (13-2-1) says not much has changed in his life since taking the 155-pound crown from (Razor) Rob McCullough in February.
Varner relaxed for a month after, travelling and spending time with family and friends.
He didn’t splurge with his winnings, although he bought a Boston terrier– Daisy — to keep French bulldog Duke company.
OK, that’s official, then – tough guys dig Frenchies (and maybe Bostons, too).
And guess what chicks dig? Tough guys with cute dogs. Good choice, Champ!
