cerrone1501Donald Cerrone showed once again that he’s a complete, well-rounded fighter and one of the top two lightweights in World Extreme Cagefighting Sunday night, beating James Krause at WEC 41: Brown vs. Faber 2 in Sacramento.

Krause, making his WEC debut, attempted to be aggressive and push the pace against Cerrone, but he simply wasn’t ready for a fighter of Cerrone’s caliber. Cerrone beat Krause both on the ground and on the feet, ultimately using his striking game to knock Krause down and then submit him with a rear-naked choke late in the first round.

Cerrone immediately called out WEC lightweight champion Jamie Varner after the fight.

“Any time, anywhere, man,” Cerrone said of his wish to fight Varner. “He’s taken a lot away from me, saying that I don’t deserve to fight him, I don’t belong in the same ring with him.”

Cerrone then looked at Varner, sitting cageside, and said, “You’re a tough guy behind your computer and your cell phone.”

Cerrone and Varner fought to a controversial split decision in January, with Varner coming out on top in a fight he couldn’t finish because of injuries. Cerrone has questioned the legitimacy of Varner’s injuries in the past, and did again Sunday night.

“Hopefully Jamie will get out of the intensive care unit and be able to fight,” Cerrone said. “We’ll see.”
