So haven't there been second matches even tho one guy "destoryed" the other guy? Rematches make big money and to be arbitary and throw it out the window is well dumb. Penn "destoryed" Hughes but he got a rematch for the title no less.
A Bisping/Hamill II would make sense later because who does agree with the decision? You saying Hughes/GSP II you meen Hughes/GP III because Matt won the first time, then GSP won the second time. Tito/Rashad II would make sense for later on obviously because it was a draw.
No I meant GSP/Hughes II because GSP came back from his loss and got a title shot-so maybe if Hughes hadn't had the title you don't think it would have happened? I don't again money maker exactly what Dana and Zuffa are all about-money.
Having Forrest/Shogun II makes absoltely no sense for right now. Later on it could, but more like a year and a half. The forrest/Shogun fight had NO controversy at all. Shogun was dominated every round and COMPLETELY gassed in the end of the 1st round. The fight has no similarities to the fights above... Thats why.
I don't remember putting a time frame on it, I figure the fight will happen and maybe before shogun goes for the title if Rampage is still holding on to it.
So again rematches happen all the time, usually to help determine how good a fighter is, or to help determine a title shot. I feel we need to see a healthy, trained, and ready to kill Shogun fight a smart, brawling, 1-0 up Griffin rematch.
