Varner wants rematch with Lauzon next


“I want to start my retribution tour,” Varner told the Sherdog Radio Network’s “Cheap Seats” show. “I want to start fighting the guys that I’ve lost to. First would definitely be Joe Lauzon. I’d really like to fight Joe again.”

“I’m not going to take anything away from Joe,” Varner said. “Joe’s awesome and he had an amazing game plan for me. The fact that he broke me down so technically, to the littlest move, like my head position on my double leg, and was able to capitalize on it, that’s incredible. It speaks volumes about him as a fighter and as a technician. I definitely feel that if we were to fight again and I had a full training camp, I would win that fight. I think it would be different.”

“I have to earn that fight with Donald, but I think with Lauzon, that would be a fight that I could arguably fight right away,” Varner said. “It could be my next fight.”

Absolutely no interest in a Lauzon/Varner re-match. Would be a step down for Joe anyway. Lauzon vs. Diaz is the fight to make.

The fight was fantastic. I'd like to see it with both guys having a full camp. Whats the downside? We have another guaranteed scrap on a fight card? Why not do it.

I tend to agree with Varner on this one, even if that's not a popular opinion. The first round was pretty close, but Varner started to slow in the second... taking the fight on short  notice almost surely had to do with it. Can't blame the guy for wanting to get a chance to go again at 100%

Too soon. Another fight or two each and see where they stand in the division and go from there.

You are probably a troll but still I'll bite because I believe many fight fans are borderline retarded and may believe your statement.Lauzon Sig. Strikes: 44 of 118 Total Strikes: 55 of 130 Takedowns: 2 of 5 Varner Sig. Strikes: 82 of 177 Total Strikes: 84 of 181 Takedowns: 2 of 4Awesome fight. Lauzon won. The reality still exists that Varner was doing very well.
