    What is your favorite multi-fight run to a TS??

    Mine will have to be TRTor’s insane run of KO’s leading to his TS against Weidman.

    KO’d Bisping

    Wasn’t it the ACs removing TRT that ended it?

    Conor's was just perfect.

    Brimage, Max (who?), Brandao, Poirier, Siver, Mendes, Aldo.

    The Mendes fight wasn't planned, but it makes the run even sweeter.

    Yeah that was so much fun

    What's crazy is at the time people were saying he had an easy path, and Cub Swanson deserved a TS lmao

    Gotta be Brock Lesnar, after losing to Mir in his UFC debut, beats Heath Herring and immediately gets a title shot.

    That's why he made a whole movie for it





    Some of the clips on these videos have over 10 million views. The Diaz rematch clip has 15 million. It's a really good documentary / film for Conor fans. He's apparently making a sequel but for that, he really needs to beat Dustin and re-gain the belt.

    JDS had one of the GOAT HW runs on his way to winning the title.

    Werdum, Cain, Crocop, Mir, Carwin, Nelson all either at or not too far removed from their primes.

    I loved RDA’s run to the title:

    374FFB23-243E-45FA-BC55-8458CA281893.jpeg

    I’m cheating a little bit because I’m including his win over Pettis in the title bout. Some haters might even cry about this run in hindsight. Make no mistake though, RDA was a fucking monster at this point in time. Funnily enough, I remember placing him well in LW GOAT contention around this time, too. Goes to show how good Khabib is - Suggestions of RDA being the LW GOAT are laughable now, but during his run to the title he was on fire. Goes to show how fast this damn sport moves, man.
