    If TJ beats the winner of Aljo/Yan, it's the third time he wins the belt. Has it ever been done?

    Edit: GSP won the belt vs Hughes, lost it, won it again and finally won the belt at MW.

    Randy Couture won the Heavyweight title 3 times. Jon Jones kind of did as well though his win against DC was overturned.

    Yup Nick Diaz, when he first won the strike force champ, then beat Condit and GSP

    SF is pretty much UFC, so u do the math

    There is a reason only Randy has done this.

    Pter Yan will stop TJ and this thread about hypothetical futures about TJ should go to the WASTELAND

    They literally stated on the broadcast while talking about tj that randy is the only 3 time champion of a weight division and that tj was chasing that.

    Jon Jones is a 4 time champ.

    Shogun
    OSP (interim, then stripped)
    Cormier 2 (then stripped for turinabol)
    Gustafsson

    Being a multiple time champ just means you lost your title a lot.
