To Gus fan: All the judges had it 49-46. Even if you had it 48-47, who cares? I thought Hendricks was robbed against GSP. If GSP stuck around, I do NOT think Hendricks should have gotten an immediate rematch. As challenger, it's your job to go take the title, not "stay competitive" and hope the judging goes in your favor. If Gus beat someone remotely meaningful in-between, then fine. But he did not. Ever since Shogun/Machida, everybody clamors for a rematch every time a fight is close or has even like 10% controversy.
To Daisuke: Jones looking worse after the fight is irrelevant. Hendricks looked worse after the Lawler fight, but clearly Hendricks won. It's a sport/competition, not a "whose face looks worse". I don't want to steer off topic since I know that's not your attention. Also, rematches aren't exciting if they happen so soon, like with Cain/JDS. If Bones fought Gus, that would only be a year in-between fights. Then if Gus won, it'd be six months before they fought again.
If there were no remotely deserving challengers, then I'd be OK with Bones/Gus. But as much as I can't stand and dislike Cormier, he should be getting the next shot.
