I want to start out by saying I loved last nights main event. Thought it was a great fight, I thought it was a close fight. I had Bendo winning 3 rounds to 2. I had it 3-1 Bendo going into the 5th but I knew a lot of people probably had it 2-2 going into the 5th. So as the 5th went on I and I had Edgar winning. My first thought was oh great, this fight is gonna end up a big old controversy. Sure enough thats what we have and I hate it! IMMEDIATE REMATCH!?!?!? Um, please NO!
Anderson Silva and Chael is an example to me, that is a rematch that needs to happen. Chael dominated whole fight only to get caught at the end. He fought a few guys and worked his way back to the rematch. Rematch was earned and has fans excited to see it. Maynard and Edgar rematch made sense as well.
But...The Condit and Diaz have to rematch asap, along with Edgar and Henderson! STOP!!!!!! I hate what mma is becoming. Its getting to be like boxing, in that there seems to always be controversy, bad judging, bad referees. Just becasue fights are close does not mean they have to fight again right away. Machida and Rua, BJ and Edgar, also are fights that I didn't think deserved immediate rematches. This rematch shit is getting old. Anyone else feel this way?
Please UFC, fix the way we score, judge, ref, and even observe fights. I do not want to see one of my favorite sports end up like boxing, irrelevant and always marred with controversy.
