I think there was an injury inbetween that forced the Edgar vs Maynard 3 fight even further back from the original date.
It sure did suck for Pettis who was supposed to get the shot as the last WEC champ but then went on to lose to Guida and had to build his way back to the belt.

Meanwhile, they weren't even the guys under title consideration.
Wasn't Jim Miller on a streak aswell? 2011 was a pretty good year of fights. Jon Jones fought 4 times during 2011 out of which 3 were title fights.

The first one was a title eliminator a few years before the second, and Penn won.

When the second fight ended in a draw the UFC folded up the lightweight division and just didn't have one for a while, but I am pretty confident in saying that won't happen again

Didn't help that their initial title fight already was a rematch, so it was a pretty shitty situation.

Ask Frankie Edgar. The champion keeps the belt and they most likely have a rematch.

And before those rematches, it was BJ vs Edgar back to back.

LW has had a disturbing amount of rematches.
