I think they'll book the rematch, as they could sell the shit out of the PPV.|
But it would set a bad precedent. Jones may have scraped through, but he did win the fight. Scheduling a rematch is akin to saying that it doesn't count. It does! He won!
I get instant rematches for champs that lose, especially someone dominant like Silva who got KO'd dicking around. But a challenger getting an instant rematch? It's a bit of an insult to the champ who has already beat the guy once. If it were me I'd get the impression that my employers think I can be beat, or maybe didn't deserve to win in the first place and that they were trying fix the initial "mistake" of a first fight.
