Paul Varelans (born 1969) is a professional mixed martial arts fighter. He is famous for his appearances in the Ultimate Fighting Championship from 1995 to 1996, as well as a worked shoot fight against Taz in Extreme Championship Wrestling.
Paul Varelans made his UFC debut on July 14, 1995 at Ultimate Fighting Championship 6: Clash of the Titans.
On June 22, 1996 at ECW's Hardcore Heaven event, Paul Varelans faced and was choked out by ECW star Taz, in what was promoted as a "Shoot Fight." Despite being promoted as a legitimate shoot fight, it is believed that Varelans agreed to lose via submission.
Missy Hyatt claims in her book that Varelans agreed to lose if she gave him a blow job afterwards, but Hyatt blew him off and said that she doesn't blow "jobbers". After this, Varelans supposedly became irrational and tore up the locker room.
In October 1996, a school district cancelled an appearance by Valerans at a local school where Valerans was to have spoken to students in grades three through five.
