    Give examples of stupid rematches.

    For example - Jimi Manuwa vs. Jan Błachowicz was super boring, now they rematch it UFC Fight Night 127.
    Just because Manuwa is from England and there are a lot of Polish for Jan.

    Um that's not stupid? Companies making something based on demographics isn't stupid, it's simple business.

    "stupid" dont take it literally. its just they are doing it for money, but they dont try to matchup good fights.

    If you look at it from a sport point of view, Ken/Tito 2 and 3 were pointless.

    However if you look at it from a $$$ point of view, they should have stretched that out to about Ken/Tito 6.

    An instant rematch of a FOTN title fight which was a draw.

    If thats your definition of a stupid rematch, i pity you.

    I'm kinda tired of rematches who ended up with the same result:
    Tyron vs Wonderboy.
    Holloway vs Aldo.
    Jon Jones vs Cormier and Cormier vs Anthony. ( I really wanted to see Rumble vs Jon jones)
    And now we're gonna get Romero vs Whittaker.

    But for me, rematches make sense when the loser of the 1st one have a real good chance to win it back.
    Joanna vs Rose for example because Joanna was so dominant and i want to see if it was a fluke or not.
    Max vs Conor would also be good and I'm not against Cruz vs Tj or Tj vs Cody again.

    I love how much the rematch resembled the first fight all the way down to the time it finished

    Cain vs everyone.

    The poor guy ruined his legacy, because the UFC only wanted to match him up against guys they knew he could beat. Now he has beaten 3 guys the last 7 years.

    They are probably waiting for Dos Santos comeback fight.

    Bisping vs Luke was unnecessary too.. oh wait..

    In hindsight, those are "stupid" to you but they could have went the other way.

    Since the first fight ended with a draw it had to be done.
