I think both the UFC and the fans are underestimating how problematic fast rematches are. As far as I know, there has never been a third rematch between any two fighters in the UFC. In other words, when the trilogy is over, there's very rarely any interest in a fourth fight. Let's look at Miesha Tate. When she was 11-2, she fought Ronda Rousey in Strikeforce and lost. She then moved on to submit Julie McKedzie and then she got stopped by Cat Zingano, but got the title shot anyway because Cat Zingano was injured and they needed a familiar face on TUF to sell some drama. When Miesha was 13-4, she fought Ronda and lost a second time, 18 months after their first fight. For Claudia Gadelha, it's' a bit different. When she was 12-1, she fought Joanna Champion and lost a decision. Some people feel like she should have won, there was a little bit of controversy. It was a split decision. She then dismantled Jessica Aguilar and immediately got a second title shot. She will fight Joanna in January 2016, 13 months after their first fight. Here's the thing. I'm not saying Miesha Tate doesn't deserve to fight Ronda again, I'm not saying Claudia isn't the #1 contender right now. However, the question is: how well can you sell the third fight if the champion wins the first two fights? What happens to Claudia Gadelha if Joanna Champion gets a dominant win this time? The UFC keeps making the same mistake over and over, in my opinion. They know rematches are easy to sell, but they give us too many rematches. They let BJ Penn fight Frankie Edgar three times and BJ lost all three and then retired. They're giving an immediate rematch to Cain Velasquez vs Fabricio Werdum after he was totally dominated, and then what happens if Cain Velasquez loses the second time? Cain has only fought 3 times since 2012, so how many years would it take before he could get another title shot, at that point? Renan Barao got a rematch against TJ Dillashaw less than a year after his first loss, getting only a single win between the two fights. Now he's 0-2 against the champ, and people are asking for him to leave the division. Unlike Ronda Rousey, Joanna has plenty of top 10 contenders she hasn't fought. And unlike Miesha Tate, who could potentially fight Cyborg at 145, Claudia has nowhere to go if she gets stuck as the #1 contender with no title shot in sight. These rematches are killing me.
