Default It never ends... BJ calls out GSP for a rematch

Bloodyelbow has the transcript from BJs Blog:

For the past several days I have been reading statements made by St. Pierre and Greg Jackson about our fight on January 31. St. Pierre claims that he is "not a cheater" and that he and Greg Jackson will have "no problem with a rematch in the summer of 2009." To the untrained eye the grease might not look like much, but every grappler knows the effect that it has. Being able to apply your submissions and sweeps or just being able to hold on to your opponent to defend yourself from being hit is absolutely critical! There is a reason why you are not allowed to put grease anywhere on your body except for the area around your eyes. Because of the grease applied to St.Pierre’s Body the Nevada State Athletic Commission’s executive director, Keith Kizer has stated that the Penn-St. Pierre fight "definitely wasn’t fair". I hereby accept George St. Pierre and Greg Jackson’s challenge for a fight in the summer 2009. Lets call Dana now and set it up.

So what does Dana do? "Summer of 09" may mean "July of 09" or UFC 100.
BJ vs. GSP worked pretty well to bring people in once, will it work again?
Can BJ's body take another 5 round beating?
Should the WW and LW divisions get put on hold until these guys settle this?
