As Frankie Edgar attended UFC 159 this past weekend in his home state, the New Jersey native was reminded how much a fighter's marketability factors into matchmaking.

If there is one thing missing from UFC championship bouts it's rematches.

I can't wait to see Cain rematch Bigfoot then rematch JDS. It's almost as cool as having the same 3 guys fight for the LW belt 4 times.

There are few MMA-related things that would make me happier than if Edgar didn't get a title shot again for the next two years. The best scenario would be Oliveira pulling off a miracle submission when they fight. Then again, its more likely that Frank will just jab him lightly (but with super awesome speed ) for three rounds and take an easy decision.

I think if you lose a title fight then you should have three wins before you get a rematch or a new title shot.
