They both earned their chance at a rematch, and weren't merely given one. Shogun/Machida is the exception due to the extreme closeness and controversy of the finish.
If you get beat by a guy, earn your way back. Show you're worthy of a rematch. Crying to the promoter doesn't show you're worthy.
Exactly, I'm all for rematches if they are needed. Immediate rematches is alright if the fight ends up like Shogun-Machida or Danzig-Wiman to name a few.
