    All this multi division champ stuff just needs to stop. Unless he is willing to defend all three belts each twice a year what is the point.

    The point is he will be in the history books and I have no doubt he can defend once every belt...In boxing there are a lot of 3 or more belt owners not a weird thing to discuss

    I don’t think he sniffs top 5 at 145.

    At 125 he could get the belt if he drops now, otherwise MM would beat him once he gets the belt back.

    I don't think he can make 125 and I don't see him beating any top 3 fighter at featherweight

    But the thing is, Boxers tend to move up after clearing their divisions. They also tend to move up in weight to capture another belt and stay in the higher weight class.

    Champions in boxing don't really move down for belts, its seen as weak in Boxing.

    No. He won't have any chance on featherweight.

    He could make 125 and get the belt, but he seems smaller for 145, specially with the size difference with Max.

    I say he can... but he will not.

    He's not commited to doing it.

    No but he could possibly hold onto the BW belt for a few defenses. BW has some contenders. Now that MM’s streak is done I don’t think he goes down ever. Props to TJ but no reason to call him BW GOAT yet. It was a great performance on Saturday. TJ doesn’t possess the level of stans on sherdog for this type of illusion of grandeur discussion.

    Can’t tell if your referring to amount of regulatory belts like wba and wbc, yes it highly achievable and doable to get 3 regulatory organisation belts in one division, however weight classes in boxing are much more different, featherweight to welterweight in boxing has a difference of 21 pounds (126 lbs to 147 lbs) and spans over 5 weight classes, in MMA those limits apply to around 3 weight classes from flyweight to bantamweight. Also majority of these 3 division belt holders are from lower weight classes were weight increments are much lower. So combine the weight limits with the multitude of regulatory bodies which all boxers go for of course there will be so many different boxers to achieve three belts. In UFC there is no regulatory sanctioning body that outlines weight classes only guides, therefore u have one belt to fight for and much higher weight increments so basically in my opinion the odds are heavily stacked against TJ. Imagining him fighting Max Holloway is a big mismatch imo

    Not to mention Max, Ortega, or Stephens.
