Dana White tweeted the news just minutes ago, that Frankie Edgar will get his immediate rematch against Benson Henderson.

The tweet from the UFC President reads, “Frankie Edgar and Ben Henderson rematch will be this summer,”

This is coming on the heels of the UFC on FOX 3 press conference today where White said he did tell Jim Miller and Nate Diaz that the winner of their fight was next in line.  That was before the close fight many thought the former champ Edgar won against newly crowned Henderson.

Edgar rematched B.J. Penn and Gray Maynard after defeating one and having a draw with the other.  He of course won both rematches before losing his belt by decision to “Bendo” at UFC 144 in Japan.

MMAinterviews released an article out after UFC 144 on why Edgar deserves the rematch, as the timing for it makes the most sense anyway. They heal up and fight, Anthony Pettis gets the winner of Diaz vs Miller and the winner of that gets the champ.

Please give us your feedback on what you would do if you called the shots.
