I really hope that is true. I'm a bit tired of the constant rematches at 155lb.

Either win and move on, or lose and deal with it.

All I keep hearing is "If not for the upkick Frankie would have won". well Sorry, but the upkick happened.

How many hundreds of fighters can claim "If not for the ( Insert - Thing that made me lose) I could have won"?????

Sure, if that didn't happen Frankie may have won. But it did happen. So why does that grant him a rematch?

By that logic Chael Sonnen should get an instant rematch by saying "If I wasn't a doofuss by throwing a spinning back fist and landing on my ass, I could have won". So therefore I should get a rematch.

I don't know what I am getting at, I just don't want to see this become a trend everytime a Champ or Challenger loses a close title fight. At some point, guys just need to accept that they lost, even if it was close, or even if it was only won by one fluke hit. Fluke hits, though rare, count just as much as their more common counter parts.

I completely agree with STU. Although I don't personally mind this fight happening as it's tomorrow and I'm relatively stoked that it's fight night, I would have been equally happy if it was Bendo vs. Pettis(yes a rematch but much later)/Cerrone/Diaz/Lauzon or any other fighter in line. I realize Edgar had to rematch the greatest LW fighter of all-time after beating him, and then the rematch caused by the draw with Gray, but this is getting a bit silly at lightweight.

There seemingly was no way around it though, without Frankie being completely ****ed over I guess this time around.

I also dislike the constant rematches.

I agree STU, that argument is so irritating. Edgar got caught by an up kick, him and his camp need to deal with it. It makes you wonder what he would say if Maynard said "If I didn't gas from beating up Edgar, I wouldn't have been knocked out in the fourth round and would have probably won." I'm sure he'd say something defending his win. It's the same thing really, it doesn't matter because Maynard did gas, just like it doesn't matter because Edgar did get hit by that up kick.

Would the fights go differently if these things didn't happen? There's a decent chance, but a lot of things would go differently so there's a lot of speculation. I do know that complaining about these things over and over again just make you and your camp look like sore losers. All of this is just making me want to see Henderson win again more and more.

Wether Bendo wins or not (I'm a big Bendo fan) I'm happy that this is the end of the LW rematches... This division needs to move on.

Can't wait for this fight though, and I'm so drunk that I'll be asleep once it happens It'll be difficult to avoid spoilers tomorrow morning :/

Would love for Frankie to pull this one off, but I just don't see it happening.

Henderson looked like a WW fighting a FW in the last fight.

Frankie is so hungry and his improvement between fights is unparalleled. R4 TKO for the little lion.

Edgar rubs me the wrong way. Here's to Henderson smashing him and winning convincingly. Again.
