It appears that former UFC lightweight champion Frankie Edgar will get his wish. According to a tweet he sent out that was later confirmed by UFC president Dana White, Edgar will rematch new champion Ben Henderson for the title. Here's what they both had to say:
Henderson claimed the title by winning a unanimous decision over Edgar at UFC 144. The scores were 49-46, 49-46, and 48-47 but every round was close. Edgar gave rematches to both B.J. Penn and Gray Maynard (though the second bout with Maynard was a draw), so it seems that the UFC believed he deserved one as well. While it's bound to be an exciting fight, it will definitely be demoralizing for Anthony Pettis, who loses an expected title shot once again.
