Varner's management team from KOReps.com issued a statement to MMAWeekly.com late Tuesday night, responding to the rumors about the fight with Cerrone.
"We have not been contacted in regards to this bout," his management team stated. "The fight between Kamal and Jamie was supposed to gain a shot at the title. The overwhelming majority of people seem to feel Jamie definitely won the fight. A title rematch with Ben in Arizona could be great for the fans and the WEC.
