    Is the only fighter I can think of to have 3 title shots in 3 different divisions

    He only won 1, but if he would have beat Randy Couture at HW instead of LHW

    Then if he would have beat Weidman at MW

    He would be champ - champ = champ

    Maybe Aldo as well, if he decides to go back up to LW - especially if McGregor somehow gets the belt and he can get his Red Panty rematch

    That Vitor win vs Randy was complete bullshit. Vitor won in the first minute from a cut.

    Randy went on to beat his ass right after that, and had already beaten him before at HW

    Thats a big thing not to mention making a thread like this.

    Edit: Clearing up

    He didn’t even really beat Randy at LHW.

    It sounds like you think that Randy/Vitor I was for the HW title, but it wasn't. Their fight at UFC 15 was a number one contender match to determine who would get the next shot.

    That KO to Korean Zombie didn't help, but his overall record can potentially still put him just one win away from title shot at 135

    Fight with Randy at HW wasn't for title. He did win a HW tournament before that which isn't a belt, but isn't not a belt either.

    Conor will probably be the first in all honesty.

    Several have had 2 though.

    Machida
    Florian
    Aldo if he fights Cejudo
    Holm
    Shevchenko
    Nunes
    Cormier
    Penn
    Couture
    Vitor
    Conor
    Pettis
    Cejudo
    GSP
    Sonnen
    Joanna
    Frankie

    I'm probably forgetting a few aswell that's just from memory.
