Wait, didn't they agree to two fights before the first fight?If there is no injury, it sounds like they are not keeping their word.Anyone have more details?

That sucks, that is a fight that Aoki desprately wants to avenge, but it is hard to blame Melendez, a rematch would be somewhat of a no win situation for him.

 Only those that are desperate fight for dream. Not getting paid for months after you do your job doesnt sit right with any person with some semblance of common sense.

shouldn't rematches be reserved for fighters that have a close first fight?

Where they supposed to fight? I am surprised the Gracie team would allow Aoki to train with them if they were going to fight one of their fighters. I just don't see the Diaz bros. helpind a dude that way.
