Although the fight doesn't have a date, noted MMA oddsmaker and frequent MMAjunkie.com Radio guest Joey Oddessa has opened Frankie Edgar as a slight favorite (-125) over new UFC lightweight champion Benson Henderson (-105).

Although he initially suggested the new champ would meet Anthony Pettis in his first title defense, UFC president Dana White instead announced earlier this week that Henderson (16-2 MMA, 4-0 UFC) and Edgar (14-2-1 MMA, 9-2-1 UFC) will rematch sometime this summer. The fighters first met earlier this month at UFC 144 in Japan, where Henderson earned a unanimous-decision victory to dethrone the champ and take the title.

"In rematches, Edgar seems to adapt well," Oddessa told MMAjunkie.com. "Case in point: the rematches vs. Gray Maynard and B.J. Penn."

Makes since Frankie has always excelled in rematches,the guy knows how to strategize and come up with killer game plans,i do think he needs to do some hardcore strength training as he was having a hard time with his take downs.
