    Now Aldo isn't getting an immediate rematch against Conor even though he is very deserving of one if anyone ever was. But Aldo wasn't an entertaining character and didn't sell tickets like Conor does.



    However, RDA is a different matter. This isn't Conor's normal division and RDA just won the belt, so their is no indication on what kind of ticket seller he'd be as champ. RDA also didn't defend the belt for years, so it'd be hard to argue that he deserves and immediate rematch. People could say that a quick KO is exactly why an immediate rematch is warranted since both fighters didn't get to showcase their full skills.



    So, if Conor quick KO's RDA like he did Jose Aldo, does RDA get an immediate rematch?

    If there was going to be a rematch, it should have been Aldo in the first place. If he didnt get one, what makes you think RDA will?

    UFC is milking the McGregor train while it lasts. they're not going to do what is merited, they're going to do what makes money

    No. RDA should fight Aldo for a shot at a rematch.

    Meanwhile Edgar will still be getting the shaft.

    Immediate rematches should only happen if the fight was a razor close decision.

    Aldo doesn't deserve a rematch for getting knocked unconscious, doesn't matter if it was 13 seconds in. Same goes for RDA. If gets seperated from conciousness, he does not deserve immedite rematch.

    There's been way to many immediate rematches lately and it gets tiresome after a while. It feels like the belt is tied up for a year before we see a new contender for the given weight class.

    I don't like quick rematches in almost all cases but the UFC certainly likes them.

    Unlikely. Probably not the most marketable fight. There'd be better fights for Conor like Frankie, Robbie, Ferguson/Khabib, Diaz, or even the Aldo rematch

    Money is a big part of the merit equation. Hate to break it to you but this is how prize fighting works in the real world, it's still a PPV dominated business, and until you and your 6 hardcore buddies out-pay the entire casual fanbase, the UFC will continue to cater to their needs, so deal with it.

    Plus, Aldo had one job: derail the "clown". He had 2 chances to do it, first time he bailed out, the second time he failed, miserably so. Had he done his job successfully, Conor would not be getting a LW title shot, we would not even be having this conversation to begin with, so if you want to complain, go complain about Aldo for failing at his job.

    I feel in the manner Conor will finish RDA, there will be no need for a rematch!

    I doubt it. Connor is probably going to move up and take another belt or just be a movie star like Ronda.

    Nobody should get an immediate rematch. EVER. Work your way back up.

    Conor is getting a LW title shot because idiots eat him up. It has nothing to do with Aldo, and more with Dana and Lorenzo doing their best Vince McMahon impressions. Rankings exist for a reason. Bottom line, this is the first time two UFC divisional champions are fighting each other with a belt on the line, and there's a reason why it's never happened before. Because its bullshit. UFC has so little faith in Connor's popular longevity that instead of having him clear out the FW challengers and building his resume, they're just skipping him ahead of the line. The only reason to do that is to protect Conor from potentially losing his belt and image at FW and thereby ruining the hype for a inter-divisional fight.

    No because RDA isn't white to be considered marketable.

    The UFC fanbase is racist.

    Boxing fanbase is not racist.

    People still don't understand that the fanbase, is completely opposite.

    UFC has a fanbase that roots for White Fighters, that loves white fighters with the "It" factor...If they are cocky, they are loved.

    However if black/brown fighter with the "IT" factor is cocky, expect them to be hated by the UFC fanbase...Thats why it's hard for black/brown fighters to make as much money as white fighters in the current scheme of things.

    The UFC fanbase likes black/brown fighters who arn't cocky but they are never superstars

    MMA in the UFC is just now a WWE wankfest.

    Well guess what? Idiots pay, if you don't like how the merit system works you and your six hardcore buddies are more than welcome to come up with several hundred million bucks and out-pay all those idiots, then you can demand shit from the UFC.

    Yeah, for fanboys like you to argue over them. Show me an objective ranking everyone agrees upon. It doesn't exist. The official ranking didn't even exist until very recently.

    GSP vs. Penn 2, as mentioned above, not to mention it happens all the time in boxing. Bottom line, you're just salty as F that Conor is Fing up your boys Aldo and Frankie and not letting them have the fight they wanted, because UFC is a business and Conor is their No. 1 salesman. Like I said, if you're not happy about it, feel free to come up with several hundred millions and out-pay all the idiots who're paying the UFC, until then, deal with it. Until someone beats Conor, he's living the whatever the F I want live and neither Frankie nor Aldo can do jack s about it.
