2007 - 2010 This was the era when the LHW title was tossed around like the hottest potato ever. When the UFC finally brought the PRIDE fighters over, the Liddell era ended at the same time. Rampage finally killed the king with a picture perfect left hook in the first round to win the title, defended it once vs Hendo and lost it to Griffin in one of the greatest LHW title fights ever. Griffin then lost the belt to Rashad, who lost it to Machida, who had one of the most controversial title wins in UFC history vs Shogun. They had an instant rematch where Shogun slept Machida in the first round. The LHW belt changed hands 5 times in 4 years before Jon Jones came and said enough is enough. 2014 - 2017 After wiping out the previous era, the very dominant champion Jon Jones now had to deal with the aftermath of a suprising war from a certain swede, hatred from an undefeated powerhouse wrestler and a KO machine looming in the dark. The structure of the LHW division during this era was basically: GOAT tier: Jon Jones Champion tier: Daniel Cormier Contenders: Rumble and Gus. What a time to be a fan. They all fought eachother except for Jones vs. Rumble.
