Probably one of many reasons why you aren't a UFC champion.

I'd be lying if I said I wasn't disappointed though. I wanted to see Frankie Edgar go up against Kenny Florian and BJ Penn go up against Grey Maynard.
Same here
Let BJ fight a strong wrestler. Last i remember he had problems with a wrestler ...
Edgar - Florian sounds very very good to me too.
Put these fights on the same card. Winner of BJ-Maynard gets winner of Edgar-Florian. There you go.

Yeah I agree they should mix it up a little, the fight could've went either way, it wasn't a huge outrage that edgar won. Like the Machida/Shogun fight now that was a huge outrage over terrible judging so a rematch should be expected right away.

BJ well deserves a instant Rematch, just as much as Shogun does IMO. Alot of people including me thought that BJ won the fight, infact the poll i did on here the other day, more than 50% of the voters thought that Edgar didnt win.

I think Bj should wait for his opportunity now. He lost and that's his own fault. I'd like to see:

Florian-Edgar and Maynard-BJ or Gomi-BJ

Man, I hate these kinds of rematches. It's always unfair to the fighter who won.

But hey, BJ tends to get what he wants, whether it's fair or not.

I assume one of the major factor in the UFC's decision for an automatic rematch is the fact that Florian has a pretty bad staff infection in his knee that requires surgery, so he's going to be out for awhile. Once the staff clears he's still going to need atleast 8-12 weeks to get in a good training camp.

They most likely don't want the belt held up for 5-6 months when the champ is prefectly fine to fight. Edgar vs Maynard is a possibility, but isn't exactly a big money fight.

Way to add to the thread I suppose you're a UFC champion? Oh right...

Anyway. Where does it stipulate that any time someone beats a champion they have to beat them a second time in an instant rematch otherwise, even if they clean out the division, they're just a "paper champ".

Go back to training smart guy, one day you'll be a UFC champion! lol
