    Can the UFC stop killing fighters careers by giving immediate rematches?

    Joanna is the latest casualty in the long line of fighters being given the rematch too soon.

    See also: Jose Aldo vs Max

    Anderson Silva vs Weidman

    BJ Penn vs Edgar

    Renan Barao vs TJ

    There must be dozens of other examples

    There should be a mandatory 2 fight win streak between rematches

    Thumbs up if you agree with me

    So you suggest GSP had to fight two more times before a rematch with Serra?

    And Cain Velasquez could have fought different people other than JDS and Bigfoot

    Dana was already Conor’s bitch by this point and had to acquiesce to his demands

    Aldo injury was typical Brazilian excuses lol

    Alot of champs are delusional, so when they lose the belt its often hard for the UFC to get them to accept other fights other than a title fight

    They all want a rematch and come up with some excuse as to why they lost

    New matchmakers must spend all day watching YouTube and browsing Twitter for fighter beefs

    IMO All dominant champions deserve an immediate rematch if they want one. Obviously in Aldo's case he didn't get one because Conor has more sway than your average fighter and he was more interested in winning a second belt, but Silva, Ronda, Joanna, etc. all did. Mighty Mouse almost certainly would too, if he ever loses.

    Exactly, and they need to be saved from it for the good of their careers!

    The way it used to be was there was a championship fight and the title changed hands, both fought someone else, and the winner of those two fights fought. It didn't work like that every time, but it worked when it did. Franklin went on the fight Quarry after he beat Tanner for the belt, Tanner went on the fight The Crow and lost, Franklin and The Crow fought. Similar thing happened when Randy lost the belt to Chuck. Rematches were reserved for weird shit like Vitor v Randy.

    Because matchmaking relies more on who said what about somebody's mother than it relies on who is earning their way by fighting.

    Why not have the same card back to back? UFC Liverpool this sunday and next sunday. To be absolutely sure about the first results.
