Steroids in MMA
Which MMA Fighter Will Test Positive For Steroids Next?

Rematch Report: Garcia vs. Phan II Booked for UFN 24 and Maynard vs. Edgar III Penciled in for UFC 130

(The losers get a bonus check from the judges’ bookie.)

The UFC will attempt to get some resolution between some of its disgruntled employees in the coming months by setting up two rematches between a quartet of fighters involved in controversial decisions in their last bouts.

According to MMAWeekly, Nam Phan will look to avenge his BS loss to Leonard Garcia at the TUF 12 finale when he locks horns with the Team Jackson fighter at UFC Fight Night 24 in Seattle on March 26 and lightweight kingpin Frankie Edgar will attempt to successfully defend his title against Gray Maynard for the first time after their New Year’s Day UFC 125 title fight ended in a somewhat controversial majority draw when the pair get a do-over  at UFC 130 in Las Vegas.

Phan dominated Garcia through all three rounds of their first meeting on December 4, yet lost by split decision, while Maynard and Edgar’s bout could have gone either way after the champion weathered a first round drubbing by the challenger to pull off the improbable stalemate.

The Garcia-Phan bout has been signed and the Maynard-Edgar bout is contingent on whether or not "The Answer" is healthy in time for the lightweight rubbermatch. The Toms River, New Jersey native, whose only loss came at the hands of Maynard two years ago, suffered a broken nose in their January clash, but says he is aiming at a May return to the Octagon.

If you think you know everything about nothingness than you are a nilihist. And if you think "an" should precede MMA instead of "a" than you are a judge.

Cant wait to see Edgar descisively beat Maynard this time.

I'm going to go out on a limb and say Edgar and Maynard are going to be the TUF coaches for this season. If not them, Guida and Pettis.

Bill Jackson, do you want to lay some pipe to Edgar?

If you think that I know nothing about judging an MMA fight, then you know nothing about judging an MMA fight.

If you think that anyone who disagrees with you is wrong, then you know nothing about judging an MMA fight.

Oh wow I didn't notice the date for the Seattle Fight Night before. March 26th is my birthday and I live in Seattle. This is the perfect opportunity for me to finally wear all of my affliction gear and underarmour for a night out on the town.

Then when I get home I can watch the Fight Night on my DVR.

Oh well you seem to have an infatuation with Frankie so why don't you stick to mens beach volleyball if you can't back your logic with anything credible

I really don't want to get into it again, but if you don't think Edgar won that, then you know nothing about judging an MMA fight. Sorry. And if you are about to argue with me, then you know nothing about judging an MMA fight.

I want Pettis to beat whomever he faces, but im rooting for Maynard again. I dont like Edgar at all! the only time i rooted for him was against Sherk.

I would rather see pettis vs either but this is the only fair way to handle it cuz I thought gray did enough to win. I had no problem that it ended in a draw but I think it was closer to a gray win than an Edgar win. Nam is gonna get screwed again if he doesn't finish Garcia cuz the judges love the wild shots that Garcia throws(even though they usually miss cuz he puts an amber alert for every one he throws)
