Since returning from ACL surgery, GSP defended his UFC title as many times as the following fighters defended throughout their entire careers: Baby Jay, Renan Barao, Ben Henderson, Frank Edgar, Demetrious Johnson, Cain Velasquez, Dominic Cruz, Brock Lesnar, Tim Sylvia, Rich Franklin, Andre Arlovski, Jens Pulver, Randy Couture and all the champs that defended only once. *Source
Why stop there? He also won more UFC title fights since coming back from his ACL injury than Roy Nelson, Houston Alexander, Cro Cop and Josh Koscheck COMBINED. He won three more UFC title fights since his injury than Fedor has ever been in!

Unfortunately, despite more divisions than ever, we aren't getting as many title fights. Partly, this is due to so many cards. However, a lot of champs aren't fighting. GSP liked to fight twice a year, and when he was out with his first ACL tear, Condit didn't defend the interim belt once. He used it to cement his "top contender" status. Hendricks hasn't fought since beating Lawler. Cain, Aldo, and Pettis seem to be injured more than they're healthy. MW has been a mess with determining who can fight and when. Between Vitor's TRT, Weidman's injury, and Machida popping into the mix, that belt has been stagnant for a while. Jones and Rousey are more active, and I have no reason to doubt Dillshaw. DJ was more active, but I'm not sure what's going on in FLW now.

GSP has to have a restraining order on you by now.
