Jon Jones has been champion since March 19, 2011 and has had seven title defenses.

Another thing worth noting is that Wanderlei Silva held the Pride FC Middleweight (Light-Heavyweight) Championship from November 3, 2001 until February 24, 2007. Silva had four title defenses.
Quack

I think far more like an alien than a Japanese when it comes to MMA. I have watched EVERY PRIDE and Bushido. I still defy any PRIDE fanboy to attempt to defend this mountain of horse poop!

I am the happiest camper that this abortion of a "professional" combat organization got shut down with this trash!

NOT Wandy's or Fedor's fault the Pride management thought like the average 1st grader in the United States of America!

Fedor won the PRIDE HW belt on 3-16-2003 and held it until PRIDE folded in 2006.
He had 15 fights in that period (14 in PRIDE) with a grand total of M.F'ing TWO title defenses.

Horse poop at it worst smelling I tell you!
Why are you yelling at me?

Pride folded in mid-2007, btw.

And I get some of what you're saying. But also, Wanderlei and Fedor both won Grand Prix tournaments which were spread out over only a few months and are much tougher to win than single title defenses.

When has Bones ever been shelved for a year?

Jones is the LHW goat and only the blindest of haters would say otherwise. To at this point argue that anyone, be it Wand, Chuck, etc is ahead of Jon at this point is laughable.

I'm not really on team bones but...'faking' an injury would be pretty stupid on his part right now. DC gets more time to heal and gameplan.

The only possible good thing that could come out of this is gus takes another fight and loses.

I am not yelling at you.

I thought that you were basically "laughing" at the whole PRIDE and title defense thing, and I was actually strongly building on what I mistook as your point in the "side note".

Sorry.

If that be the case that you were "serious" and the duration of "holding" a belt is NOT predicated upon defending it, than this entire topic would be insignificant IMO.

Back on track, I do agree that Bones is ATW a badass!
