I don't disagree my point was more that he was willing to fight either Gus or Cormier though as it certainly would not a guaranteed win for either of those guys if they faced each other.Fighting one fighter isn't fighting the better of the two. It's fighting a guy who was better on one night.
The role of rematches in MMA has become diminished, and that's unfortunate. It's infinitely preferrable--even from a business sense--to have a champion face a string of talented contenders rather than have them knock each other out of contention and face the single survivor, particularly if said champion is taking weak defenders in the mean time. Building credibility and legitimacy is a superior practice than the shell-game that zuffa currently engages in.
I just hate when people think winning one fight makes someone the better fighter. There is so much history ignored there. MMA is the best of all combat sports because it incorporates more variables than any other combat sport--and at the elite level any of those variables can end a fight. On one night. But it takes a rematch, in my opinion, to actually prove anything beyond one fight on one night..
