    and are you trying to tell me there's only been one rematch.. ever?

    Edgar vs Maynard x20
    Lesnar vs Mir x2
    Griffin vs Bonnar x2
    Griffin vs Ortiz x3
    Silva vs Sonnen x2
    Silva vs Weidman x2

    this is off the top of my head.. and I haven't even used Randy Coutre and his stupid amount of rematches.. nor have I used Bj Penn, Matt Huges or St. Pierre..

    No there have been a lot of rematches. Some of those fights were warranted and needed to be rematched though. It's not like a fight card is going to have 5 rematches.

    I mean really, how many fight cards even have a single rematch?

    At worst, 1 in 3? So 1 out of 15 PPV/Fox fights?

    Well when it's just scrubs vs scrubs or rematches, it gets old.. and it got old fairly quick. Think I lasted like 3-4 years, max.

    I'm kind of with you. Like I said, I'm still really interested in some fights the cards are just too thin. Don't care what Dana says, watching 135lb guys fight is not very entertaining to me.

    I wish they would do something like Strikeforce did and have a tournament style set-up where winner gets a championship fight. Do it with guys ranked like 9-16 and have plenty of extra fill-in fights where people can be replaced; stick to a schedule. Would add a lot of interest to the fights for me. Plus I like the idea of a guy fighting his way to the championship.
