We know Anderson has 10 official defenses. If you add Travis Lutter, you got 11 defenses. Anderson made weight. It's not his fault Lutter came heavy. Then he moved up and beat 3 LHWs. While not title defenses, Anderson's legacy would have taken a hit if he had lost any of these fights. So really 14 title defenses. So why does DJ needs 22 defenses? In his 14 title defenses, Anderson beat 2,651 pounds of opponents. 2651/125 = 21.208 (round up to 22) DJ 11 defenses = Just a measly 1,375 pounds of opponents. DJ has a long way to go.
