Benson: Edgar deserves a rematch

by Shaun Al-Shatti | source:

"Frankie had a very tough situation," Henderson admitted. "He had a rough road with two rematches right away after his title defenses. So the fan in me feels that he deserves (the rematch). He had to put himself on the line, I don't want anybody coming back to me and saying ‘oh, Henderson didn't want to rematch Frankie because he was scared.'

"I'm more than willing to give Frankie a rematch. Let's do it. Set it up for tomorrow."

Henderson's logic is sound, and essentially follows the script laid out by Edgar. However, as White has voiced, yet another lightweight title rematch would clog up a division that just escaped a two-year traffic jam.

These are my thoughts exactly. Also say what you want about Edgar's style but atleast he has finished a couple fights in the UFC, Ben has not finished a fight yet even though he has a size advantage over many fighters in his division.

Let Pettis Hendo 2 happen please.Pettis deserves it. And Hendo will probable end up with the W so Frankie Hendo to can happen Asap after.Frankie deserves an immediate rematch against the winner. He can either decide to wait for the result of the fight or fight an guy before then ( Diaz Edgar would be fun to see....and personally in think very winnable for Frankie).He can also move down though personally i do not really think that move is warranted yet.And i rather see Aldo move up anyways (even though i do think Frankie will be a beast at featherweight).
