    Many people bring up this fight, Rockhold already beat him, what is the point of this rematch (unless it is for the title).
    Fresh matchups are more interesting:
    Weidman can fight Romero or Jacare
    Luke can fight Romero/Mousasi/Whittaker/Silva

    There are plenty of options, i think this rematch should not happen

    Weidman does if Luke has the title

    Also

    Luke does if Weidman has the title

    Other than that...Let Romero smash them both

    Nah.

    Weidman Vs Souza
    Rockhold Vs Romero

    If Moose beat Vitor, he's right up there too.

    Nope.

    I thought the rematch was stupid too, glad it got cancelled.

    Rockhold was the better fighter and he won.

    Not now, no. And it's not his fate because Rockhold proved once and for all for the whole world to see that destiny doesn't exist.

    He's a regular fucking humanitarian.

    I'd like to see Souza get his spot at the title. He definitely deserves it.

    With the top 4 guys having not all fought each other, there's no reason to stick them in rematches.

    Jacare, Romero, Weidman, Rockhold. Surely someone at UFC can be a little more creative than just rematches.

    I don't know any fan of MMA who wouldn't.

    However, it should be fairly clear Jacare is going to get matched up with one or that other, and honestly, that's why Jacare is so pissed off. I don't blame him.

    Rockhold vs Weidman 2 didn't make much sense when it was actually going to happen. Now it makes even less sense.

    Heck yeah.

    But only if Weidman is physically "right."

    If Weidman has neck/nerve/strength issues he can't fix (I don't know where he's at with all that), he should retire. He looked pathetic in the Rockhold 1 fight and appeared to be a shell of his former self.

    A great example of what that injury can do to someone is what happened to Kurt Angle. Angle went from a 400+ pound bench presser with a monster torso to looking like a pre-puberty boy in his arms. Lost a huge amount of size and strength from it.

    I hope Weidman can get back to his best physical form.

    The proper terminology is McTapper, McTappsy, or the McTapinator

    Exactly this. These are the fights to make. If Chris and Luke do fight again let it be for the title.

    Agreed. I'd rather see Weidman vs Jacare just to see a new matchup and do Rockhold vs Yoel.

    Yes they will fight again but whats the point of now. Do romero and jacare have to fight again in that case or can we just switch it up and have luke v romero and chris v jacare.

    I like how you think. To me, a rematch at this point makes zero sense and only holds up the division more. This is how I think it should go down:

    Weidman vs Jacare
    Luke vs Romero
    Vitor vs Mousasi
    Hall vs Brunson
    Anderson vs Whittaker

    This would make the division much clearer and give opportunities to guys who deserve the chance to prove themselves.

    I wasn't for an immediate rematch for the title between those two. Now that Rockhold no longer has the belt then I'm fine with a second fight.
