    9-0 before they gave him Pettis to fight for the title.
    For example , Till is now 4-0, and Stipe got the title fight after 2-0 .

    Depends if you mean UFC. Barao had something like 29 in row when he fought for the UFC title.

    Assuncao has to be up there at this point, not 100% what his record is but it's gotta be close to the most wins with no title shot.

    To be fair Khabib was inactive a lot. Max was fighting all the time and cleared the division before getting a title shot only because Aldo pulled out

    Im not sure, both Ferguson and Max are at 9 , no one has more ?
    so the answer is Tony & Max , longest win streak to get the title shot

    So the Ferg fight counts even though it didn’t happen?

    Also, is this ufc fights only?

    What about khabib. That was a real belt?

    Such a swamp of crazy lately. It’s hard to take the belt seriously.

    He has a few inopportune losses. the loss to dillashaw at ufc 200 really set him back
