I don't think a champ should get an automatic rematch if the fight isn't a close decision. i don't care for how many years you have reigned the division. Otherwise that would mean that you have to beat the champ twice to become the champ. Close decision though is a different story in my opinion, much like Penn/Edgar, or what I think were the best 2 title fights in LHW division, Machida/Shogun.
