Well, I believe that Penn deserved the instant rematch as some believe he won, and based on his legacy alone he deserved the rematch.
You are saying the first Edgar-Maynard rematch shouldn't have happened? The first Edgar-Mayynard fight was 2 years before their second fight. Furthermore, Edgar was holding the belt while Maynard was on a 5 fight win streak that included the likes of Florian, Diaz and Miller. Maynard earned his shot, and I don't see how the first rematch was not justified.
Edgar-Maynard III was completely fair due to the draw that happened.
I don't agree really agree with Henderson vs Edgar II.
As for Henderson vs Cerrone III, the 2nd fight was over 2 years ago. I admit I have not watched many of Cerrone's fights in WEC, but we can all pretty much agree that Cerrone is a beast in the UFC. Except for that humiliating loss to Diaz, he has looked really dominant in his fights. With a win over Pettis, I'm sure one can get hyped about Henderson vs Cerrone despite the previous two bouts.
Henderson vs Pettis II: The last WEC champion who won against Henderson faces him again for the UFC title this time. Completely fair.
Cerrone vs Diaz is a little difficult to accept, considering Cerrone it would have been just 3 fights after the first bout. However, Cerrone would have earned his shot if he gets a win over Pettis, and we can't blame UFC for putting the title fight together if Diaz happens to be the champion.
I understand your gripe about certain instant rematches, but definitely not those rematches that happen sometime down the road.
