    Stipe holds lineal UFC 1 belt and is also the Saku belt champion.

    It's amazing that the UFC 1 belt is still being passed around. It's also amazing that everyone who's ever held it except for Big Foot has been the undisputed or arguably the #1 openweight/ HW fighter in the world when they won it.

    UFC 1 belt:

    Royce Gracie < Sakuraba < Igor Vovchanchyn < Mark Coleman < Big Nog < Fedor < Werdum < Overeem (Ubereem) < Antonio Silva < Cain Velasquez < Werdum < Stipe < Cormier < Stipe

    Saku belt:

    Sakuraba < Wanderlei < Hunt < Barnett < Cro Cop < Gonzaga < Couture < Lesnar < Velasquez < JDS < Velasquez < Werdum < Stipe < Cormier < Stipe

    We may be about to lose 2 important parts of MMA history. We may even be about to lose the very beginning of our beloved sport.

    So let's pray for Ngannou to come back, crush some old men, and carry the torch into the future. :mad:

    Rumors from seemingly credible sources are that he's going to retire due to injuries from DC's eye pokes.

    That is such bullshit. I guess DC is no different from Jones.

    It amazes me that people try and act like the flagrant eye poke in their first fight had nothing to do with the outcome.

    Eye pokes should be point deductions from first infraction, regardless of intent.

    Yeah, it's gotten to the point where it's affecting a champions ability to fight, and thus earn revenue for himself and his family. And still no one ever even loses a point for multiple eye pokes. Guess that JBJ love is still strong in the mma community.

    Nah. Just give it back to Cormier. They're 1-1- and Cormier knocked out Stipe faster.

    The Saku belt was created after Saku had already lost the linear UFC 1 belt, so it took a different path. Cain got the linear UFC 1 belt after the first fight against JDS.

    Actually DC pokes were much worse than the ones by Jones.

    He looked pretty good and healthy bowing down to and being star struck by Connor last week.
