After their first bout ended in a controversial no-contest result, Roger Bowling and Abel Trujillo will meet for a second time. UFC officials today announced the lightweights will rematch at December's UFC on FOX 9 event.

Lots of people were calling Trujillo dirty not too long ago. Then Phantom Cam taught those same people a lesson on point of perspective and relativity, and a lot of boards are quiet on this topic.

I like the matchup. Right now I think it could go either way.

I still think Trujillo is dirty, a fake tough guy. Even if he didn't hit him directly in the face (& I still think he did after several angles & watching a million replays) he should have known it was a dangerous shot to throw. Plus I hated him throwing a bitch fit to the ref when he couldn't break Khabib's grip as he repeatedly got thrown down. He finds a way to complain about everything

Here's to Bowling hoping he picks up where he left off (which was clearly winning 2 rounds to none).
