Yeah, but Serra wasn't GSP's next fight, was he? He had to go through Koscheck first, and that's not exactly a gimme fight.
That, and Serra was supposed to fight Hughes next, but was he was injured.

. Why should he have to do it again? Why should BJ immediately get chance to regain his belt?
Whether BJ was 100 per cent or 50 per cent, it doesn't matter. He lost. Bottom line. If Peyton had the flu during the Super Bowl, should the Saints have to play the Colts again?
This instant rematch stuff reminds me of the weird matchmaking that went on in Pride. Maybe that's why some guys on here like it.
