SACRAMENTO, Calif. - WEC lightweight Donald Cerrone (10-1 MMA, 3-1 WEC) will get a second shot at current champion Jamie Varner (16-2 MMA, 4-0 WEC) some time this fall.

While Cerrone has made no attempt to hide his desire for the rematch, WEC general manager Reed Harris announced following Sunday's WEC 41 event that Varner had also agreed to the contest.

"I spoke to Mr. Varner tonight, and he's ready to go," Harris said. "He's going to take the fight."

If Cerrone employs any actual strategy in this fight he should win

Last fight did a really good job of showing that

People are too quick to trash on Varner for that fight just because they don't like him. He clearly dominated Cerrone for 3 1/2 rounds. If Cerrone could ever learn to defend a takedown or protect his chin it might be a different story, but for right now I'll take Varner in a rematch all day long.

I don't like varner either. But he dominated the whole match, and he'll do it again. I hope not, but I think he will.
