After having his UFC 173 bout stopped at the opening round bell, Jamie Varner is reporting that he suffered two broken bones and torn ligaments in his defeat to James Krause.

Varner didn’t specify which bones and ligaments he injured, but a follow up report from MMA Junkie.com says all of the injuries are to the fighter’s foot.
The Arizona fighter has lost three straight bouts since he scored a split decision win over Melvin Guillard in December, 2012.
