Varner's wrestling is very underrated, especially his takedowns, I would say his takedowns are better than Khabib's when he's on(especially singles and doubles) and better than 90% of the division as well.

...............but obviously not powerful enough to handle the Pettis mental martial arts kick. I think he will do great if he doesn't get banged before a big push.
