Nevada State Athletic Commission executive director Keith Kizer has informed press row that lightweight Jamie Varner (Pictured) is blowing chunks backstage and is far too ill to fight Melvin Guillard tonight at “The Ultimate Fighter 16 Finale.”

Oddly, just minutes before Kizer’s announcement, Guillard tweeted that Varner was frazzled because he thought “The Young Assassin” might be illegally using Vasoline to grease his body.

“Wow varner is worried about me greasing sounds like someone worried,” Guillard posted.

Worried to the point of puking?

UFC president Dana White has notified Guillard that he will be paid his show purse.

The UFC hasn’t reported which preliminary bout will now replace the 155-pound shootout in tonight’s FX broadcast.
