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.
