Call me Old School, but why would any UFC fighter (unless they are injured), have the right to refuse a fight that the UFC wants to create?

I guess I'm just disappointed that he doesn't want the rematch a fight that most of us enjoyed watching the first time. If he gets beat, then he'll have Part III and both fighters will have made a bundle of money....

People are saying he's scared but who is to know if that is true? Another option is that perhaps he feels he won the fight in a manner that wasn't as close as other people think, so why fight him again so soon? Why not challenge yourself against someone else instead of having to do a fight camp for Gus and then another for the next person in line.
