link UFC President Dana White has refused to give Gray Maynard an immediate rematch after he fought light weight champ Frankie Edgar to a split decision draw.

Instead White will stick to his plans announced before the event to allow the final WEC light weight champion Anthony Pettis to get an immediate title shot to unify the WEC and UFC belts.

Pretty well has to; can't let Pettis sit on the shelf for that long and can't have him defend a WEC belt in the UFC. I think Maynard should get the option to face the winner without having to take a fight between now and then unless he wants to though.

Where was the extension round though ?

I hope Pettis wins....let Maynard fight the winner.

Few people have confirmed Dan White changed his mind and has said there will be an immediate rematch. I'll wait for something more official to come out
