    With news today of the change of trilogy, right away it is obvious that the marketing department, Dana and Fertitta's got the hint that fans weren't excited for the immediate rematch to finish the trilogy. I commend them on it , and don't buy for a minute that it was solely because Hendricks didn't want to wait for Lawler. The fight might happen again but needs to be rebuilt through some wins for Hendricks like Lawler did after his loss. It's the most competitive division and look forward to see others challenging for title and not same two over and over again.

    Too many rematches. Hendricks is greedy with the belt anyway. Bad business, man. Bad business.

    So, the guy forgets a "be" in a sentence and you have to rip him? How many languages do you speak?

    Nice one Jack, nice.

    Exactly. Too many rematches and too many "interim" champs. It hinders guys who are close to or at the top.
