    He will successfully defend his belt against Overeem on a slightly different note.

    The UFC HW belt carries the lineage of many prestige HW championship belts (except Bellator).

    Sakuraba vs Igor Vovchanchyn was a draw.

    So, no lineal.

    No it's not, it counts as a loss because Sakuraba withdrew, basically gave up (although understandable given that he just fought for eternity with Royce before that, but still a loss).

    He will have 0 defences, Demolition Man is coming and could possibly get 3 defences, which would be the HW record.

    No he's not, even if you go with that line it's

    Royce- Harold Howard - Steve Jennum - Tank Abott - Dan Severn - Coleman - Maurice Smith - Randy Couture - Inoue - Fujita - Coleman - Nog - Fedor etc.

    Thats nice. Very intersting.
    But what really matters and what would give this thread weight: does he have the saku belt?
