I know, I know — of course audience members would get stabbed during a Jamie Varner fight. I mean in some cosmic playground, it all makes sense.
According to Varner’s training partner Tim Welch, two audience members were actually stabbed during Varner’s fight, which apparently caused a huge ruckus in the stands. Newark, the city that never sleeps, and always has a shank ready for any buster that tries to act up.

NJ.com also ran a story on this bizarre incident that went down inside the Prudential Center.
Two people were stabbed inside the Prudential Center during an Ultimate Fighting Championship event on Saturday night, police said.
The victims were identified as two men from Pennsylvania, but Newark police did not release their names.
They suffered non-life threatening injuries after they were stabbed in the stands just before 8 p.m., according to Newark Police Director Samuel DeMaio and were treated at University Hospital.
Security officers recovered the knife used in the attack and arrested Angel Pereira, 36, of Lancaster, Pa., who is charged with several counts of aggravated assault and two weapons offenses, according to DeMaio.
My god this Jamie Varner, inciting people to stab other people with knives. I’m sure he’ll find a way to blame it on Urijah Faber stealing his Mountain Dew sponsorship idea from WEC.
