It seems nowadays that every time a fighter loses, he immediately calls for a rematch. It is getting to the point where it is almost ridiculous to have the first fight at all, because the loser will immediately give a rundown list of excuses why he lost, and offer to "run it back" for a better account of himself "the next time." WTH? Folks, rematches should be very few and far between. A fighter needs to get his shit right the first time he faces somebody. The only time a rematch is actually justified is in 1) an epic battle, where two of the very best in a division fight at such a high level, and were so even in the contest, that it 2) really left the outcome undecided (and/or hotly debated) at the end, usually with a split decision. Only if those two elements were present (a truly epic battle of greats + and both people still looking like winners), does a rematch makes sense "to settle the score." It also makes sense from a fanfare standpoint. However, when one person gets the living shit beaten out of them, and/or gets finished inside the distance, there is absolutely no reason to do that fight over again. The dude lost, he got finished, and he was simply not the man the other individual was. Get over it, move on. That said, the idea of running DC back into Jones for the third time is ludicrous. The man lost twice, the first in an epic battle, the second by flat out KO in the rematch, leaving DC crying a broken heap on the ground. The score was settled, no decision was rendered. DC got beat down and finished. He is not the better man. He needs to come to terms with this fact. In the first fight of Miocic and DC, the rematch was justified because of the fluke loss, not to mention the cheating eye pokes of DC. However, in this second fight, DC simply faded, got backed up as the rounds were on, and got KTFO by Miocic, again leaving DC a broken, crying tired man on the canvas. That score is now settled. There is absolutely no reason for a trilogy. The only fight that makes sense now is Miocic vs. Jones, for either man. The fanfare that would be drawn from such a fight would be unprecedented for the heavyweight division. It would offer Jones a second belt, which would be an historical elevation if he wins, and it would offer Miocic the head a truly great legendary fighter on his resume, in Jones, if Miocic wins. Regarding the constant buzzing of a Khabib/Conor rematch, there is absolutely not one reason for those two to ever fight again. Khabib absolutely dominated Conor, who tapped out, and was similarly left a tired, wilted, and broken man on the canvas. Conor has done absolutely nothing to deserve a rematch. In fact, his inactivity should remove him from the top 10. The idea that Conor McGregor deserves a rematch because "he's a money guy" is ludicrous. I think Conor has only one more money fight left in him. If he beats a top 10-ranked guy, and then maybe one more, he may be able to salvage his name and reputation, possibly earning a title shot again. However, if Conor loses his next fight, his marquee appeal will be utterly destroyed. Regardless, there is absolutely nothing in his performance against Khabib that warrants a rematch. He was beaten soundly, and made the conscious decision to quit. In the end, the UFC needs to have standards of conduct and only put those fighters who deserve title shots in line for the title. Right now, it's Tony Ferguson and Justin Gaethje. Ferguson deserves the title shot more than anyone else in the division, and it is the greatest fight possible for the Lightweight division. Conor McGregor is not great for the lightweight division and doesn't belong in a conversation for a title shot. He has a 1-3 losing run compared to Ferguson's 12-0 winning run. If Khabib faces Ferguson, there should not be in automatic rematch, unless it is some kind of epic fight and split decision loss. However, if one fighter finishes the other, then whoever wins is the champion and needs to move on and face new competition. This new voguery of losers "asking for rematches" by default needs to stop. Fighters need to get their ship together, and get it right the first time they step into the octagon and give it everything they have then and there.
