What you are saying is not true dave. Dana said that the WEC champ would fight the WINNER of the Edgar v Maynard fight. The thing is the fight ended in a draw so there for there was no winner. So the only logical thing to do is have a rematch since Pettis cant fight the winner of a fight that had no winner.
