Then I thought to myself, it would have been so fucking funny if the reporter would have just been like "fighters like Jeremy Horn?"
...but it's true, no way in hell did Sonnen deserve a rematch with Nate, Okami, and Belfort all waiting for their shot
True, Chael did not deserve a rematch. No, i am not knocking his performance at all, he had me nearly crapping myself for a full 23 minuets. However, HE LOST DECISIVELY! He did a great job, but he had his shot and he squandered it; there are no re-do''s unless a champion looses the fight in a controversial decision. From a money decision yes it makes sense to have a rematch, but fact is that there are other challengers that were in line for a title shot. For the record, I dont think Vitor deserves a shot either; he should have had to fight Okami for a title shot.
