Rematch not needed, it's not even debatable.

You actually make no sense. You see, how it goes is, instant rematches happen with controversy. Pettis legitimately subbed Bendo in less than a round, Bendo said he tapped, end of story. So since there is no controversy, the new champion (Pettis) will defend against the number one contender (Grant).

This isn't WWE dude.

Yeah no rematch. They fought twice and Pettis beat him twice, and last night was a first round finish.

I was 100% sure Pettis would win ... but I'm not sure he'll be able to defend it untill Benson climbs back to the top again for the rematch

Henderson must be devastated... the same guy stole his WEC title in at home, and now stole his UFC title even more impressively... The fight was great but too short

The fight with Jose Aldo will be interesting once it happens... at least for the first 2-3 rounds

No rematch needed. Henderson tried implementing his game plan but Pettis was prepared and landed those 4 vicous body kicks that got Henderson to back up and finished him with an armbar.
Just because the result wasn't what you wanted and the fight didn't last as long as you did doesn't mean there should be a rematch. Hopefully TJ Grant gets his shot at the title.

He seemed to completely shrug it off after the fight, it was weird.

And the UFC now has it's first orange champion (as far as I can remember.)

The fight was long enough to show that Henderson knew his best chance would be grinding out a decision via wrestling, but as soon as there was any fighting aspect going on that involved damaging the opponent (striking/submission grappling) Pettis clearly was the better man.

This wasn't a fight that ended with a one shot lucky punch KO. Pettis hit him with several body shots that made Henderson back up, biting down the pain grimacing, before having to verbally tap to an armbar that popped his arm so bad that he couldn't even put his T-shirt on.
