Kostya steered clear of an immediate rematch, and after Philips lost to Millett and Forrest it was taken off the table altogether. Later, after Philips beat Acevedo, there was talk that a rematch might happen if he got by Sharmba Mitchell, which of course didn't happen.

I don't remember the details, but there was a time when Philips was looking at a couple big fights that fell through. I think that was part of the reason he was inactive for a year before fighting Millett.
