Is an 8 week turnaround the fastest for a Champion?

Ronda fought on the 28th of December, and fighting again on the 22nd of Feb.
That's 8 weeks.
Is this close to being a record? Who else has come close? Or beaten it?

I'm assuming there is an example or two, but off the top of my head I can't think of anyone.

I can't think of any in the ufc. Didn't Diaz have some quick ones in strikeforce?

Hughes fought at UFC 63 on Sept. 23rd against Penn and against GSP on Nov. 18th, 2006 at UFC 65. Also 8 weeks and the level of competition is outstanding.

It's gotta be one of the fastest, I can't think of any champions being booked that quickly. I wouldn't want to have to peak like that only to literally turn around and do it all over again. I'll never be a fan, but props to her for taking it so quickly, that's rough.

Also impressive is that Hughes got roughed up in that fight against Penn too, then found in November
