Former UFC lightweight champion and company man, Frankie Edgar has just came out demanding an immediate rematch with Benson Henderson follow their UFC 144 bout this past weekend in Saitama, Japan. A very passionate Frankie Edgar believes it’s only fair, but it would be the right move for the UFC.
Speaking via MMAFighting.com, Edgar said:
“I’m saying it, and I’m saying it loud: I want my rematch. I’m not going to have these antics or play these games. I’m telling you want I want. This is what I want. I think it’s fair. I think the fans want to see it. It was fight of the night. Listen, even if these guys want to see me get beat up, I do get beat up in a lot of my fights, even in the fights I win, so it’s win-win for everybody. I think the rematch makes sense on several levels. Not only can UFC be good guys, I think I earned it. Economically, they’ve been investing money in me. I’ve been at the helm of this weight class for two years now. I think it just makes sense for them and obviously for me. Let’s do it.”
Edgar lost a unanimous decision to Henderson this past weekend, but not without the mixed martial arts world torn over the out come of the fight. Many believed not enough happened to strip the champion of his gold, even with the log jam at 155, I think it’s only fair Frankie get’s the rematch both Gray & BJ were granted.
