    Josh Barnett
    Ricco Rodriguez
    Frank Mir
    Fabrício Werdum
    Vitor Belfort
    Forrest Griffin
    Rashad Evans
    Maurício Rua
    Dave Menne
    Evan Tanner
    Luke Rockhold
    Carlos Newton
    Matt Serra
    Johny Hendricks
    Conor McGregor
    Holly Holm
    Miesha Tate

    Well, to be fair, McGregor hasn't actually had a title fight since he won the belt.

    Is that so? Says who?

    You get the belt, you're the champion.

    Can you really declare Rockhold as a champ without snickering?

    Shogun defended in my books.

    Won the first fight against Machida and then knock him out in the rematch.

    this is so stupid, you beat the champion, then you are the champion, it's literally so simple that a 2 year old could grasp it, but not some Sherdogger

    Decent list. Imo, you aren't champ if you haven't at least defended twice.
