They’ve alredy duked it out twice, so why not do it one more time? Here are 5 rematches with active fighters that we would love to see battle for a third time.

Matt Hughes vs. Frank Trigg

Since both of them are still fighting and Trigg is back in the UFC, I’d love to see them go at it again for a third time. Hughes won both bouts by Rear Naked Choke, since renamed by some the “Rear Naked Trigg”.

Scott Smith vs. Robbie Lawler

These 2 warriors have met twice. The first time was a war, but an inadvertent thumb stopped the fight and was ruled a no contest. The second fight Lawler won by TKO in the second round. Mauro Ranallo said at the time, “I think these two warrior are incapable of having a bad fight.” Agreed. They are both coming off losses so give me a the third installment.

Frank Mir vs. Brock Lesnar

You could make the case that Mir doesn’t deserve a rematch. He was being dominated in the first fight until Lesnar was warned for punching to the back of the head. Mir then submitted Lesnar. The second fight was all Lesnar– complete and utter destruction. Mir would have to get stronger and get better takedown defense, but I still would like to see them go at it again.

B.J. Penn vs. Georges St. Pierre

Their first fight went to a decision. In the second fight Pierre was too much for Penn and the fight was stopped after round 4 by B.J.’s corner. Then there was the whole “Greasegate” issue. Would a third win by St. Pierre quiet B.J.? Probably not, but we’d like to see it anyway.

Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira vs. Josh Barnett

They’ve split the first 2 meetings, each going to a decision. Minotauro lost the first by split decision and won unanimously on the second fight. They fight in different promotions now and Barnett is never coming to the UFC, but I sure would like to see them brawl one more time.
