    There have been a few of them in the last couple of years, and I never had a problem with it. I'd like to hear arguments from the guys on here that oppose instant rematches under all circumstances.

    I guess sometimes you want an instant rematch, other times you don't. I'm fine with Silva getting an instant rematch; he was the long time reigning champ, and to a lot of people #1 p4p and GOAT. He deerves an instant rematch.

    In cases such as Gus - Jones I don't see the need for an instant rematch. The champ won a close unanimous decision, and it wouldn't even have been that controversial if it hadn't been Jones' first competative fight ever. Gus, as the challenger, didn't deserve an instant rematch.

    there has been exactly 1 (one) rematch for a failed challenger, that was Shogun. A clear robbery where pretty much everyone agreed it was a robbery.

    A close fight, where the only real controversy is manufactured by haters isn't really a good reason. And that's it really.
