    I know we give credit to the GOATs in every division, but I thought it would be interesting to see who you guys think were the worst champions (either by skill/resume/etc...)

    I didn't include any fighters that lost their title due to outside circumstances

    WSW: Carla (Obviously, 0 defenses)
    WBW: Tate (Got absolutely thrashed in her only title defense)
    FLW: MM (What a slacker)
    BW: Barao (Although that's a little unfair)
    FW: Conor (0 defenses)
    LW: Eddie (I would put Eddie as the underdog against every other champion, even an RDA rematch, 0 defenses)
    WW: Serra (Great upset, awful champion, 0 defenses)
    MW: Menne (Basically got a title fight for having a lot of career fights, 0 defenses)
    LHW: Vitor (Do we even count that title reign? 0 defenses)
    HW: Coleman (Hardest one for me, but losing in your first defense by epic upset really hurts him)

    Thoughts?

    Maurice Smith. Got blanketed by Randy in his only defense in the 2nd worst fight in mma history. (Shamrock/Severn square dancing for 30 min of course being the worst)

    So what HW would you pick to replace him?

    Someone's reign has to be last

    Thought about putting Smith, but technically he beat Tank for a defense, so I gave him the benefit of the doubt

    Michael Bisping defeated Luke Rockhold to become champion. Dominant victory. That's significant. Then defended vs. Dan Henderson.

    That's better then Dave Menne, Evan Tanner, Luke Rockhold.

    I strongly disagree: WBW: Holm is far worse than Tate. Holly has only had ONE good performance in the UFC.

    My criteria for worst champion goes into their title performances only, but I agree that Miesha has certainly had a better career than Holly

    I think it's 3. Pretty sad, but it made choosing the worst pretty difficult for me

    This is such bullshit. You'd put Pulver and Sherk over Eddie? In the USADA era?
