So the cat is officially out of the bag Jan 10 I'm defending my title in sacremento against Ben Henderson

This will Varner's first return to action since winning a controversial decision against Donald Cerrone.  Of course, Ben Henderson also just defeated Cerrone via razor thin split decision and become the WEC lightweight interim champ.  This will be his chance to become the undisputed champ.  This should be a good fight and it'll be interesting to see how Varner performs after coming off such a long layoff.
