    ... for nine consecutive fights.

    1. Anderson (wins belt)
    2. Anderson
    3. Machida
    4. Vitor
    5. Rockhold (loses belt)
    6. Romero
    7. Mousasi
    8. Gastelum
    9. Rockhold

    Any debate on this? Just pointing out a fact that is often obscured under a mountain of complaining about his personality.

    That's quite the line up of opponents.

    That’s what happens when you beat Anderson back to back. No softballs after that..

    It's up there. But you can find stretches like this in many guy's careers, once you're a champ you're gonna be facing a bunch of killers in a row.

    The Anderson wins are great obviously, but other than that he hasn't really accomplished all that much. Both Lyoto and Vitor were past their primes and off the juice when Weidman took them out.

    Honestly, that was a good or maybe even great Machida. He dropped off big time after that fight.

    Vitor was way past it, and off the sauce by the looks of him, agreed.

    Probably not the GOAT lineup but its up there

    That's really legit especially considering he had only 9 fights before this

    TS has a point - that is a brutal stretch.

    It's definitely up there. Romero's is very good too, but maybe a little less than Weidman.

    Whittaker
    Rockhold
    Whittaker
    The Chris
    Jacare
    Machida
    Tim Kennedy
    Tavares
    Brunson

    All except Vitor. TRTVitor would have took his head clean off fighting prime or not

    You know what, many disowned The Chris after losing the title but I respect that he's still your boy after everything that happened.
