    Time to drop some cold hard truth on you all

    Bitching that Cormier is a paper belt really

    <34>

    What if I told you Jon Jones never had the legit linear champ belt, yeah how about that

    <mma1>

    So you say who was the champ hmm???

    Let me all introduce you to

    [​IMG]

    Frank Motherfuckin Shamrock Mother cfuckers

    Get fucked

    This guy never lost or failed a drug test and is the first linear champ!!!

    "But what happened?" you ask

    Well let me tell you and don't interrupt me again

    Frank vacated the belt!!!!

    "Oh, really? Was he sick … or"

    No he cited "LACK OF MOTHER-FUCKIN COMPETITION"

    Guy dropped the belt cause he was bored and it was too easy being champ … and after this two random fighters picked it up and passed it around eventually to Bones and DC

    All paper champs

    And unless Shamrock comes back they will always and forever be paper champs!!

    Mic drop

    Pick up the mic, lift it higher

    drop it again

    If it was a paper belt wouldnt it rip and be destroyed from their sweat when Dana puts it around their waist?

    It weighs about 12 pounds.
    Cormier got paid over a million to defend his LHW belt

    Thats a lot of paper.

    If we actually go "true" linear, where Frank didn't vacate it, the linear LHW belt got weeeeird.

    ...Frank < Renzo < Hughes < BJ < Nick Diaz < Condit < GSP. So GSP is the lineal WW, MW, and LHW champ right now, assuming he never vacated any belt.

    I did enjoy the slam ko he had. I can't remember who it was against now and I'm too lazy to look it up.

    Do you not understand that the belt simply reflects who the best (usually) fighter in the division is? They don't have to be lineal champions to be the best.

    @Clippy the belts are made from metal and leather. Not paper clippy.

    I hate to be the one to tell you this.

    The lineal title only changes hands for fights that are contested in the division it belongs to; so the lineal title is essentially vacated since Shamrock retired before ever losing at Light Heavyweight.
