Since the fight was a definitive submission loss...
UFC President Dana White spoke with reporters in a post-fight media scrum after UFC 164 talked about the main event title fight. White confirmed that former lightweight champion Ben Henderson wouldn't be getting a quick rematch at Anthony Pettis with the submission loss.
White stated, "We had the fight with Ben and Frankie where some people thought he won. There's no f---ing denying who won this fight, and it was a first-round annihilation, kind of like the Vitor-Anderson thing, you know what I mean?"
This marks Henderson's second loss to Pettis. Henderson previously lost to Pettis by decision in their WEC title bout at WEC 53.
