    So Rose was the underdog vs Joanna in their rematch ( her 1st title defense) and now will be Underdog in her 2nd title defense vs Andrade

    Which has me wondering, is there a record for most consecutive title defenses while being the underdog in all of them?


    Sherbros discuss?

    Obviously Woodley he has been the underdog in all but one.

    Also I've heard that only like 3 champs have lost in the ufc whilst being underdog? Is this true?

    Edit:Randy Couture, Shogun,Benson Henderson,Matt Serra,Rashad Evans and Eddie alvarez are the champs who lost their belts as underdogs.

    Serra vs St Pierre II...

    I know only one defense... but has to be the biggest champion dog.

    For sure, as far as an underdog winning the title.

    But I meant a champion with the most title defenses while being an underdog.

    pretty sure shogun was the underdog against Jones when they fought, which was crazy as Jones was 23 and took the fight on 3 weeks notice

    Edgar was the underdog in the BJ 2 and Maynard 2 fights and he was a very slight favorite in the Maynard 3 and Bendo 1 fights.
