BROOMFIELD, Colo. – It was tough to tell what meant the most to WEC lightweight contender Donald Cerrone (12-3 MMA, 5-3 WEC) after defeating his arch-rival, Jamie Varner (16-4-1 MMA, 4-2-1 WEC), in a rematch at Thursday night's WEC 51 event.

Was it defeating his nemesis in sound fashion? How about displaying a newfound set of wrestling skills? Finally getting out of the blocks quickly? Or maybe proving he actually can win the big fight when the pressure is on?

For the "Cowboy," who credited his rodeo roots for one of the best performances of his fighting career, it was all of the above.

Cerrone looked outstanding...who would have thought he would out grapple Varner?
