And became champion in that weight class, would it hold as much merit as becoming champion at a lower weight classes then going up? I know the obvious answer should be yes, but Edgar an ex LW champion couldn't grab the FW one. Same with Pettis and the FW interm(even though he didn't even make weight). I also truly believe DC could've at least grabbed the HW belt, but would've lost to Jones. (Rematch might be different). Just a bored a curious white belt thread.
