Let me lay it out for you as I see it... Because of Dana White's ego.
White was repeatedly calling Barao the PFP number one in the world prior to Barao's complete domination at the hands of a TUF runner-up. White is so convinced that he was correct, and that Dillashaw's win was some sort of one in a million fluke, that White has insisted Renan be granted an immediate rematch.
The first fight was not even remotely close. The fans (the money) was not calling for this rematch. There is simply no other explanation. It's madness. The madness of the king.
