Which of These MMA Fights Deserves a Rematch?
As a fan of any sport, watching your hero/heroes give it their all in front of thousands of fans, can be a pretty electrifying experience. However, when it all falls apart in a matter of seconds and the hero of the hour is left in last place, it can be pretty heart-breaking. None know this pain more than the champions of the Octagon, where losing to your opponent generally means you’re in more pain than them. With a single swing, kick or decision courtesy of the referee, an entire career based on success can come crashing down, as we’ve seen too many times. Undefeated and undisputed champs lose their bragging rights, sponsors lose their golden boy or girl and the bookies lose out on a great deal of cash. We’ve teamed up with betting online on Betfair to take a look at some of the fighters who had their whole worlds rocked by a single match and definitely deserve a re-match.

Serra vs. St. Pierre I UFC 69
One of the OG’s of the UFC world, Georges St-Pierre is one of the most respected fighters in MMA history, retiring at the end of 2017 with a 26-2 record. However, it wasn’t always perfect because,s back in 2007, with an impressive record of 13–1, GSP was defeated by American fighter Matt Serra just 3:25 in to the first round with a flurry of punches, resulting in a TKO. The two met once again almost exactly a year later, with GSP beating Serra in the last 15 seconds of the second round, once again via TKO. Could it be time for the two to give one final fight a shot?

McGregor vs. Diaz UFC 196
After a ridiculous, and almost unheard of 15 fight win streak for McGregor, Ireland’s most notorious fighter was at the top of his game, and the hype around him was at an absolute peak as he helped bring the UFC from a fairly niche sport to a global phenomenon worth billions of dollars. However, in lead up to the much publicised UFC196, McGregor’s original challenger, Rafael dos Anjos, pulled out due to a broken foot, leaving the UFC scrambling for an opponent. After a period of uncertainty, Nate Diaz stepped up to the plate, surprising the world by defeating McGregor in the final minute of the second round with a rear-naked choke submission. The two met again five months later, with McGregor taking the win over Diaz, however with both men now holding a win each, could it be time to see who truly is the better fighter?
Rousey vs. Holm UFC 193
Described, by UFC commentator Joe Rogan, as “the biggest upset in the history of the sport”, Ronda Rousey’s defeat at the hand of boxer Holly Holm knocked one of the most ground-breaking athletes off of her throne for the first time in her entire career. After three straight years as an undefeated champion, Rousey was caught off guard by a high kick courtesy of Holm, resulting in a knockout and the most successful female fighter in the UFC losing her place at the top.

The aforementioned reaction can be seen below in this clip from sports channel ‘The Fumble’:
Cormier vs. Jones II UFC 214
A rivalry shrouded in controversy and drama, the Daniel Cormier/Jon Jones saga has reared its head a hundred times, resulting in two bouts, UFC 182 and 214 respectively. Three days after their first pairing, it was announced that Jones had failed a drug test prior to the event, testing positive for benzoylecgonine, the primary metabolite of cocaine. After the win, Jones was stripped of his title and suspended from the UFC in connection with a hit-and-run incident. Then, in July 2016, Jones was pulled out of a fight by the USADA due to an Anti-Doping Policy violation stemming from an out-of-competition sample collection on June 16th. Jones' ’B’ sample also showed up positive for the same substances and he was suspended for a full year. .

After the two finally met again in July 2017, Jones defeated Cormier via a KO in the third round, however, fewer than three weeks later, he had his title stripped and was suspended for a minimum of four years for testing positive for the anabolic steroid Turinabol, with the belt returning to Cormier. In an interview, with showbiz news publications TMZ, Cormier said he’d be happy to fight Jones again once his suspension is up and he’s legally allowed to fight once more.
