    Pettis vs Holloway. Pettis misses weight so it becomes a non-title fight... for him. Holloway wins and it still counts as a championship victory. This is an interesting precedent.

    Anderson Silva vs Travis Lutter should be counted as a championship victory since Anderson made weight.

    I'm sure Anderson is concerned about his exact double digit record

    Anderson, Jones and Fedor are the only ones in GOAT talk
    Aldo and GSP come next

    It really can't be considered a title defense if Lutter could not take the title with a win.

    The fight is a decade old, I think Anderson is over it.

    Honest question, was Pettis vs. Holloway officially for a featherweight title? Because the bout took place at a catchweight?

    Or did Holloway simply get rewarded the belt immediately afterwards sort of like Ronda/Aldo/Cruz?

    The Travis Lutter bout was like the precursor to Anderson vs. Sonnen 1.

    I think many who rewatch that bout might be surprised to see Lutter take down Andy down 3 times, pass guard, and even get into full mount.

    The bout should count as a 11th title defence, but I guess Anderson couldn't lose the belt so that's why not.

    If Anderson wanted, he would have had like 15 title defenses.

    if Pettis won nobody got the (interim) belt. if Holloway won he would (did) get it.

    interim's can be whatever they want them to be. they're officially unofficially official. don't think too hard about it; your mind will end up tied in knots, like a time travel paradox.

    Okay good, cause my next question was going to be how the time travel works in Arrival.

    Not really, it was a championship fight only for max. If you are defending and your opponent doesn't make weight it's no longer a title fight. You can lose and still retain the title. This is nothing new, same as boxing has been doing forever.

    All of Silva's wins should be overturned now that we know he was cheating the entire time

    It counts for his win streak but not for his defense streak.

    A title was not on the line.

    Agree

    Anderson shouldn't be penalised for Lutter's actions.

    11 it is.

  19. So, the only fighter to win 12 UFC title fights wouldn't be in the conversation? Preposterous.

    Georges won more fights against opponents that were ranked in the top 5 at the time of the fight than Fedor and Andy combined.
