Let the trash talking re-commence again. Donald Cerrone will finally get the opportunity to rematch his nemesis, Jamie Varner, at WEC 51, which is scheduled for the 1ST Bank Center in Broomfield, Colo., on Sept. 30. Sources say at least one fighter has verbally agreed to the fight.

Article

UPDATE: False according to Varner. He claims he hasn't been offered the fight and wants WEC Lightweight Champion Benson Henderson instead.

This fight makes me wonder what WEC plans to do with Kamal Shalorus and whether or not they view Varner as the winner a fight that was declared a draw.

Weekly is now saying the fight isn't happening...yet. They say sources close to both fighters deny ever being offered the fight, and Varner's camp put out a statement saying they want a Benson Henderson rematch.

Pretty sure Varner is more than likely still rehabbing his hand as well

Varner doesnt deserve the title rematch with Benson. Either way I just hope varner loses.
