    I just read that for UFC 103 was supposed to have the rematch between Dan Henderson and Rich Franklin which occurred 8 months ago in UFC 93 and had Hendo winning by split decision.

    However the main event match was changed to Rich Franklin vs Vitor belfort due the fans didn't like the headliner. per Dana white: "Fans didn't like it, so we changed it".

    This is a few times were almost everybody in Sherdog are agree in something, We don't want to see this!!, not yet.

    So any chance we could reach Dana and let now this? pretty sure here is not the only place were we don't want this fight.

    It seems they actually want this unnecessary rematch to happen.

    I, devoted fan of the UFC, oppose the aforementioned Werdum vs. C-level Cain match and hereby respectfully request that a new challenger be named. All those in favor say yay.

    Yay.

    Yays win. New challenger to be announced.

    I think they really want Cain to be champ but rushing the title shot may not be the smartest idea. And yeah we stopped Hendricks/Lawler 3 and Rich/Dan.

    My hope is that they haven't officially announced the fight yet because they are stalling to see if A.) Arlovski beats Mir and B.) They make a deal with Fedor.

    Werdum vs AA + Cain vs Fedor is best for everyone involved, including the UFC.

    if Cain loses again he will enter the JDS zone after the 3rd Cain fight.
    not a very smart idea with a guy that only fights a max of once per year anyhow.

    They are NOT throwing Fedor to Cain right off the bat.

    Fedor vs C.C. II would sell much better, and potentially relaunch one of these superstars careers.

    Hendricks and lawler III had not really been announced officially though
    If a contract is signed there's nothing you cna do

    I for one hope the rematch happens.

    The UFC is so desparate for Cain to be a "mexican" star when the current HW champ did pbp for Fox Desportes and speaks better Spanish than Cain. So for me the irony is so great I can't help but want to see it.

    Plus I don't like Cain's tattoo so I wanna see him get beat up again.

    It wasn't very competitive the first time, so I doubt it will be this time. The UFC should also know this, so the fight is meaningless. The only winner here is Werdum, that can collect a big paycheck with a pretty low risk.

    Yeah I thought this too, seems it was announced they were gonna do that fight then the fans made it very clear they didn't want it so they changed it

    Even after Hendricks getting another win Dana said he wasn't interested in the Lawler 3rd fight which was a big change of tune

    I really do hope enough bitching will stop this rematch, Cain doesn't deserve it

    Add Reem vs JDS, Hunt vs Big Foot 2, Barnett vs Cro Cop 4 and Miocic vs Browne and we will have a great heavyweight card

    If the UFC made any sense this would be the fight to make or have Cain vs. Mir. Either way you cut it, it should be Werdum vs. AA.

    I remember that happening with UFC 103. I'd like to see it happen here. Maybe they'll hold off on announcing Werdum/Cain 2 until UFC 191, and instead give the Arlovski/Mir winner a shot if they look good. That's what I hope they do, anyway.

    No one ordered the first one. If that wasn't enough to discourage the UFC I don't know what will.

    They should immediately replace Cain Velasquez with 2011 Cain Velasquez.
