    So now Frankie's last three opponents will have gotten rematches. Is he now officially the most rematched fighter in the UFC?

    Edit: That or it is now possible to hissy fit ones' way into a rematch.
    See Diaz, Nick (prior to the whole drug testing kerflunkle) Rua, Mauricio; Penn, Baby Jay; so on, so forth. Apparently if Anthony Pettitis wants a title shot he needs to insult half the past and current roster, do steroids, and then engage in some white collar crime.

    Meh, it's not like there are any other deserving contenders in that division.

    Hard to call Frankie deserving of it, since there was nothing controversial about his loss and the only guy ever gifted a title shot directly after a clear loss was Randy Couture (but those were different times.)

    That said, it could really only be either Frankie or Pettis at the moment fighting for the title, so I guess this is to be expected. Pettis had the misfortune of encountering a wet blanket pretending to be Clay Guida and then had the further misfortune of thinking judges would score an active guard and near submissions favorably.

    P.S. above post was ironic.

    What about Nate Diaz? Why does everyone leave him off the list? You guys just hate him because he keeps it real on the mean streets, where it's kill or be killed and the wolf is always at the door.

    Nate Diaz will be fine. Thanks to this rematch, he's going to be one of the only 5 guys in the lightweight division we'll have any reason to talk about for the next 18 months.

    Yes there are many others as Tranquil also posted, there's a bunch more who are just as deserving.

    Where did you get that idea? The problem is that the next who knows how long has the potential to be more or less a cluster of matches between Bendo, Edgar, Diaz, Miller, and Pettis.

    First, we've got Edgar v Bendo II. Best case scenario is that Bendo wins again. Next best is that Edgar wins so dominantly that we don't end up in the worst case scenario: Edgar v Bendo III.

    Then we've got Diaz v Miller. Best case scenario is that Diaz wins and fights the winner of Edgar v Bendo II. Next best is that Miller wins, and we see Miller v Pettis for a title shot. Worst case scenario is that Diaz wins and Edgar blahs out a decision, and Nate gets the "Sorry, Pettis, but the Maynard fight was a draw..." treatment. Diaz could fight Pettis, but if he beats Miller then he already has the most impressive winning streak of any of the contenders--at three in a row--and would have the strongest case for #1 contender status.

    Who else can we add into this equation? Guillard is coming off 2 losses. Cerrone is coming off a loss. Lauzon just lost. Maynard is coming off a loss. Guida is coming off a loss. There are some prospects that have done well but it's a step up in competition for them.

    So no, the division isn't cleared out but the time spent on Maynard and Edgar really muddied the waters for any clear cut line of contention and it could take a lot of time to untangle the mess at the top of the division. Or the UFC could just hand out whatever title fights are convenient. That'd probably work too.
