All the GOATs set records in their reigns. Anderson -- most title defenses in a row. GSP -- most title defenses, best competition. Stipe -- most HW title defenses. Fedor -- longest reign, longest win streak while holding the title. Jones -- most suspensions. DC has no records. The HW defense record is pathetically low though. Even Stipe only has like 3 defenses. If DC wins the title again, is he going to take a big fight against Jones then retire? Or is he going to try to defend the title 3 more times to set the all the time record at 4 defenses? IMO It's the only all time record he can set that's still achievable at his advanced age. If I were him I'd go for it.
