    These are strange days in the UFC my friends.

    We now have 6 champions who have yet to defend their belts.
    Stipe
    Bisping
    Woodley
    Alvarez
    McGregor
    Nunes (credit to woodward50)

    Cormier and Cruz have defended once.

    Mighty Mouse has 8. Save us DJ.

    Woodley just won the title tonight so he is exempted to this question and Miocic is scheduled to fight the Seem this August,Bisping is scheduled to defend his belt against Henderson?I don't know about Alvarez.

    Proves just how GREAT guys like Jose Aldo, GSP, Anderson, DJ and Jones really are/were.

    Keeping a hold of that strap is difficult as fuck.

    Not saying there isn't a chance of them defending.

    The point is that a lot of belts have changed hands in a short enough period of time that we now find ourselves in the unusual position.

    There was a time when I thought they were doing exactly that, capped off by the ridiculous Conor-Aldo fight. And who knows, maybe they were. But it's definitely not happening now.

    You forgot little Marco. He won the title from Dillashaw and hasn't defended it.

    Stipe, BIsping, and McGregor would defend their titles very soon. Can't say the same for the others.

    He's not completely incorrect. Certainly makes it more difficult, knowing an investment can just go stale at any given moment. But vince is also sacrificing in other areas to be able to have that freedom of controlling outcomes. Which is the realism, which obviously will limit his audience to a degree. But it's definitely worked out for him for a long time. Both business models have their merits.
