WEC Quick Quote: 'Cowboy' Cerrone doesn't want to wait for Jamie Varner, eyes UFC debut

"Jaime Varner is what’s next but apparently he hurt his hand again. I don’t know if he is going to be ready or if they are thinking about an interim title. Right now it is kind of up in the air. The fight was supposed to be in September; now I don’t know what’s going to happen. I know that I am fighting in September though. If it is against Varner cool. If it’s for an interim title, that’s cool too. I am not going to hold up my career just to fight Jaime Varner. I have one fight left on my WEC contract. I want to move up to the UFC at some point -- whether that’s in a year, two years or tomorrow, it doesn’t matter to me. I also don’t want to rush things. I don’t want to go right in and fight B.J. Penn. I want to fight Cole Miller. He beat my friend Leonard Garcia so I got a little bone to pick with him. That will happen some day for sure. He is a great athlete and cool dude. He just beat Leonard Garcia and I have a score to settle. It’s a teammate thing."

Donald Cerrone was a guest on last week’s MMA radio show "Knuckled Up" and sounded off about his frustration with Jaime Varner’s injuries. Whether or not the WEC will actually create an interim belt remains to be seen. 'Cowboy' went on to call out UFC lightweight Cole Miller, stating that he has a score to settle with 'Magrino.' Cerrone added that he would like to move to the UFC for that fight at some point and pointed out he only has one fight left on his WEC contract. It will be interesting to see what the future has in store for the lightweight sensation.
