    Poirier 7

    UFC 236 was for a belt but still counts he had no belt.

    UFC 242 he had interim belt so doesn't count.

    UFC vegas 4 was against Hooker without a belt so it counts


    Gaethje 6

    UFC 249 was for a belt but still counts because he had no belt.

    How about Diego Sanchez, he has had a lot of main events, especially back in 2005-2012 period without ever being champ

    kinda crazy had khabib had 0 main events before a title shot. He wasn't meant to be a superstar, but became one anyway.

    Seems like all the main suspects have been named.

    Reem and Cowboy were the first ideas. Waterson at 4 should be up there as well, at least for WMMA.

    Two of those main events were some of the worst fights ever (against Woodley/Silva), and yes I absolutely blame Maia.

    Maia couldn't do anything and Woodley played it safe when he could've finished him. Blame is on both parts.

    Same goes for Silva/Maia.

    Silva and Woodley did the bare minimum and still won dominantly against Maia, it’s not their fault Maia is an awful fighter.

    perfect definition for "upper level" gate keepers. dont be shocked - they are! X-factor is missing unfortunately. As long as they keep the gates from Conner, I am fine with that.

    I thought Sanchez won the CMF belt.
