Jamie Varner and Donald Cerrone Weigh-In For WEC 38The anticipated rematch between former WEC lightweight champ Jamie Varner and fellow 155-pound contender Donald Cerrone is in the works for “WEC 51: Aldo vs. Gamburyan” on September 30 in Broomfield, Colorado, according to Sherdog.

In their first meeting at WEC 38 in January 2009, Varner was unable to continue from an illegal knee by Cerrone in the fifth and final round and scored a split technical decision to retain the 155-pound title.
