    There have been a lot of immediate rematches after upsets and/or rightfully earned rematches and I was wondering if there’s ever a case where the fighter who was generally considered to be the better guy has lost the second fight.

    Gooood pull. Rockhold was incredibly disrespectful in that rematch though lol
    that one is still up in the air. Rough decision I agree but Volkanovski is a beast. Remains to be seen, they’ll fight again

    Don’t know if I agree with this. Cejudo is a dog.

    Don't know if TS limited it to IMMEDIATE rematches, but if not, yeah this is an obvious answer.

    Anyway, I think I see the point of this thread. It is statistically extremely rare. Wasn't there a similar stat that if the younger wins the first and they rematch the chance is overwhelming that the younger guy wins again?

    No that's a good example, the first fight was considered a robbery and then Frankie trounced him in the rematch.

    I'm going out on a bit of a limb here but Randy Chuck 2 comes to mind.

    Randy came into that fight a mess, going through a nasty divorce and clearly wasn't focused or properly trained. He was also having financial troubles with him gyms at the time.
