    Was just thinking about the ufc and all of its champs heres the run down of title fights this year.

    Wsw: 1
    Wflw: (upcoming)
    Wbw: 1
    Wfw: 0

    Fly: 1
    Bw: 1
    Fw:0
    Lw: 1 (vacant title)
    Ww: (upcoming)
    Mw: 1
    Lhw: 1
    Hw: 1

    With the next few months mapped out will we see any of the belts defended twice?

    Just like GDR, if you refuse to defend you get stripped.

    If Rose Namajunas can recover from the psychological trauma of the dolly incident I think she defends.

    Tyron Woodley might defend before the end of year depending on how the fight goes. Maybe wishful thinking on my part because I don't want the Trump White House photo momentum going to waste.

    Very true, but this will still be the first time the belt has been defended this year.

    I think at least the BW or FLY belt will be defended twice. The MW belt will be defended, and DC will defend one of his belts. Some women belts might be defended twice too.

    There have been two HW championship fights though Stipe could not defend the belt.

    I could see Cormier defending either belt at MSG if thy get desperate with the headlining fight for that event.

    There's no way max defends twice in the next 5 months.

    if you consider the DJ vs Cejudo fight a title defense, then Stipe already answered your question.

    Its uncanny that you see the only title fought for twice in a year was the hw title. I forgot that the ngannou fight was this year i thought it was late last year.

    Difference is Conor is taking on his supposed "stylistic nightmare" and taking the challenge everyone has wanted to see since he beat Eddie. Tony beat Kevin Lee, and Khabib beat the tenth ranked guy for there "belts." Conor is the true champ, and Khabib will truly be the rightful champ if he beats Conor.

    Cyborg cant make 135 so i doubt that belt gets defended again if were doing the cyborg fight. So i guess wfw but theres no date for that firm right?
