For a variety of reasons. There have been many times in the past when fans have demanded rematches. I'm not saying this could happen now, and sell well. But maybe in the future, hypothetically speaking, when there is such a demand for rematches, it could happen. And the UFC have the marketing power to make a success of it.

I do think it would be difficult to feature a whole card of rematches. Maybe just the main card. If its warranted.

Because these fights aren't choreographed. How silly is the thought that it would end up 100% the same? Unless I read it wrong, these fighters would be fighting again, Dana wouldn't just be holding a camcorder up to his big screen and re-play these bouts.

You fellers can't think of a few rematches you'd like to see? Hammill vs Bisping? Kongo vs Barry? Carwin vs Lesnar? Nothing?

Thanks to
For the Sig!

I think that is what is confusing som people. He's not asking to show a ppv with old fights, but new rematches.

I'd buy it if it featured Keith Hackney vs Emmanuel Yarborough part II...

Sure. They used to name their events based on the theme of the matches. Like The Comeback, Nemesis etc. I wouldn't want to see the fights you mentioned but I have a few fights in mind I would watch.

Were some people posting in this thread thinking that I suggested the the UFC air the fights on free TV the day of the PPV the turn around and air the same exact fights they just put on TV for $50 on PPV?

That's...That's one of the dumbest things Ive ever heard.

Some people either need to read more than just the thread title, or expand their vocabulary


noun /ˈrēˌmaCH/ 
rematches, plural

1. A second match or game between two teams or players


noun /ˈrēˌplā/ 
replays, plural

1. The playing again of a section of a recording, esp. so as to be able to watch an incident more closely
* - clouds can be studied in speeded-up replay
* - the umpire studied TV replays

2. An occurrence that closely follows the pattern of a previous event
* - a replay of last summer's civil disturbance

3. A replayed match

verb /rēˈplā/  /ˈrē-/ 
replayed, past participle; replayed, past tense; replaying, present participle; replays, 3rd person singular present

1. Play back (a recording on tape, video, or film)
* - he could stop the tape and replay it whenever he wished

2. Repeat (something, esp. an event or sequence of events)
* - she replayed in her mind every detail of the night before

I hope this clears things up, Sorry for the confusion

I've sat through the entire Gracie Sakuraba fight... can I consider myself a hardcore MMA fan yet?
