Until he strung a few wins together. Especially if he beat a guy (or two) who've beaten the other champ in the past.
I'm not suggesting this as a solution to the question, 'who is the best fighter ever' I'm suggesting this as a solution to champs fighting twice a year and avoiding the guys who might actually beat them.
It would be harder to duck, because people would just start considering the other guy the 'real champ' if you started avoiding tough fights.
I'm not suggesting this because I think the current champs, or fans with aspergers would like it, I'm suggesting it because, to me, the golden age was when there was PRIDE and the UFC and each division, had, not one supreme champion, but two (three if you count the GP champ).
It made everything more exciting and with both champs being under one organization, it would mean the fights could actually happen.
I'm not saying 8 belts per division, like boxing, just two.
SO WHAT HAPPENS WHEN THE CHAMPS FIGHT?!? Do you just make another belt? Then there are eight per division or does a belt go away when it is unified, which than makes the point of two belts useless.
Also you didn't disagree with me, you told me you there are no casual fans and if there are **** them who cares if they are confused and don't watch ir order PPV or put money in the ufcs pocket.
