Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone is finally going to get his shot at the World Extreme Cagefighting lightweight title against Jamie “The Worm” Varner. Cerrone is a perfect 9-0 in his mixed martial arts career and a title shot is the next logical progression for the Colorado native.



He has been on a tear through the lightweight division, beating everyone impressively. Eight of his nine victories have come by way of submission, five by triangle choke.

I like both fighters but i would like to see cowboy take this fight. Somethin about the way he fights makes me happy. Ko's are sweet but the subs this guy pulls are sick! Luck to both guys

I think of Cerrone as a better version of Alan Belcher, or at least what Alan Belcher is touted as. A good muay thai striker, with good subs off of his back. I think Cerrone takes the belt from Varner via decision.

Maybe it's the level that Razor Rob's at as a fighter, but as great as the last fight was with him and Cowboy, I wasn't very impressed. I think Varner runs through Cowboy for a knockout. If not, Varner by Dec.

I think a lot of people will be nuthugging this Varner kid someday.

Agree with you totally bro, I like Cowboy and all and I believe he has a bright future. But I have Varner taking this fight either by KO or Dec. Varner is my nig

I hope Cerrone wins. I have been a fan since he was featured on Tapout.
He fought a smart fight against Razor Rob but he needs to fight an even smarter one now.
He is going to have to dig down exceptionally deep to win this one.
If he stays calm and maintains his focus...I think he can do it.
If Varner doesn't overwhelm him...I think he will win.
Either way it should be a great fight.

i just won back stage passes to the wec event this weekend from the ufc fight club
i am stoked to go meet the fighters, get autographs, pics, i am going to ask some questions like when they will have the fly weight class as well as female fighters and much. too bad they can't upgrade my seats but i am already on the floor 5 rows back,
i am such a ufc fan, i like the wec, but i really don't know all the fighters besides the two main events plus jose aldo that's about it

Willing to 1 month AV bet with someone who thinks Cerrone will win and has a similar post count, or 1 month location bet with someone who at least posts a bit.

Varner via destruction and/or annihilation.
