    Right now I can only think of Ronda and Sonnen but i guess it happened more than that...

    Edit : not immediate rematches, i mean losing to someone (champ or not), then getting a title shot at a different fighter for the belt.

    Justin Eilers. Lost to Paul Buentello and got a title shot against Arlovski.

    Also Kevin Randleman (RIP). Lost to Bas for the HW title, Bas vacates, then Kevin fought Pete Williams for the vacant title and won.

    McGregor made his own belt "The McGregor belt" but then lost it in his first defense. He gave himself an immediate mandatory rematch title shot because he's the belts governing body prez.
