    Henry vacated both FLW and BW.

    TJ was stripped due to EPO.

    Conor Vacated FW with no rematches for Aldo or Holloway.

    Khabib has ditched Lightweight after unifying it with Conor.

    GSP left Welterweight which was never unified because he never fought at WW again.

    GSP and Bisping Ruined MW, one by ducking everyone and the other by vacating me

    Jon Jones Vacated LHW.

    As far as I’ve been following MMA.

    Randy beat Tim, Brock beat Randy, Cain beat Brock, JDS beat cain, Cain beat JDS twice.

    Werdum beat Cain.

    Stipe beat Werdum.

    Ngannou Beat Stipe.

    Thats pretty damn Lineal.

    Holy shit, I did some research and The UFC HW title is consistent and lineal back to the dark ages, before Zuffa.

    NO

    If Fedor is not involved in HWology,it is all TRASH

    Stop trying to use boxing terminology in a different sport where it doesnt apply.

    I’m not trying to disparage Fedor in any way.

    But he never fought in the UFC; what are you supposed to do?

    Fedor lost to Werdum who lost to Overeem who lost to Bigfoot who lost to Cain while he was UFC champion so it still works.

    Edit: Come to think of it that means the PRIDE (and uncrowned Affliction champion), Strikeforce and UFC HW titles are all unified in the since of the lineal title. That's so unlikely the HW titles from the divisions that were ever considered the best (at least by a lot of fans) at HW all lined up that way.

    If you are talking about the lineal title (which we are) he never held it. He won the title vacated by Couture.

    You guys are never going to believe this but Randy (who abdicated as lineal UFC champion) lost to Inoue who lost to Kerr who lost to Fujita who lost to Coleman who lost to Nog who lost to Fedor, so that lineal UFC championship links as well :p

    It’s relevant considering everyone talking about the legitimacy of the Lightweight title on Saturday.

    Yeah thats fine,im just saying that Lineal titles in MMA being what it is,is not that important. You cant always apply boxing logic to this.

    Um no, Start at Coleman the first HW champion. It goes all over the place from there.

    it doesn’t come back to the UFC until Overreem gets it and Signs on with the UFC.

    it’s a strange road But Fedor held it the longest

    Exactly this, I don't think anyone is currently shitting on Jan for not being the lineal LHW champ or anything. Yeah he never beat Jones but he knocked Reyes dead and then beat Izzy in a superfight. He's legit as fuck.

    Bas never held the UFC heavyweight title, so doesn’t really matter.

    Ifx Heavywaeight title starts with Coleman.

    Yep Bas left the UFC with the HW title as champ then had one more MMA fight, won and retired.

    Even if you start counting at UFC 39 with Ricco Rodriguez were talking over 300 events and 20 years of MMA’s history.
