    Frankie Edgar vs Ben Henderson Again...

    From sports.yahoo.com

    Second verse, same as the first (Getty)
    According to Dana White's Twitter feed, the muddled mess that is the lightweight title picture has been cleared up. After Edgar lost his championship belt in a decision to Benson Henderson at UFC 144, Edgar will rematch with current champ Henderson this summer. An exact date or event was not given, but the UFC has planned events for a pay-per-view July 7 and a Fox show on August 4.
    Anthony Pettis and the winner of the upcoming bout between Nate Diaz and Jim Miller have been mentioned as possible contender, but Edgar is the winner. He pushed for the rematch in every interview that came his way. Edgar believed he deserved the fight because he had to rematch close fights twice.
    But as Snoop Pearson said, "Deserve got nuthin' to do with it." The fight is good business. Edgar and Henderson's first fight was an exciting, five-round brawl. The rematch will draw more fans who heard about the first match-up. Whether it's on Fox or pay-per-view, a lightweight title bout will offer good TV.

    I didn't have frankie winning any rounds. Might give him one but that's just me being nice. Ben won that fight hands down. I don't know what all the controversy is about.

    Edgar wasn't "dominating" any part of that fight. He didn't get crushed, but Henderson beat him pretty cleanly.

    I'm so tired of the immediate rematch bullshit. Save it for fights like McCall/Johnson, where there was a legit fuckup, or a draw. Just because a fight was close doesn't make it controversial.

    Frankie played the "But I gave BJ and Gray a rematch" and got himself the only unworthy rematch of the three. BJ got screwed by a judge (48-47 Penn, 48-47 Edgar, 50-45 Edgar?!), Maynard got a draw, Edgar... just lost to Bendo. Not even controversially. He just lost. 49-46 on two judges cards, and 48-47 on the other.

    Edit: And who the hell is Snoop Pearson? "Deserve's got nuthin to do with..." belongs to William Munny out of Missouri, killer of women and children.

    Okay, it will be a money maker for UFC, but Edgar got beat, period.

    Well i really dont think there was any controversy either, i also think Ben won fair and square, im just betting on Frankie cos maybe he can make something out of holding Bens f____ leg this time (well not BETTING rly). Anyway i hope to see a good fight.

    Twas a great fight, but there is no way to dispute the victory. I'd love to see them fight again soon but Henderson shouldn't feel obligated to an immediate re-match. Frankie's not going anywhere and definitely deserves a shot at the title again soon though.

    Doubt it'll be easy, but Bendo will pull out the win for sure.
