As for those that get the belt, we've only had 8 of them (Randy, GSP, Nog, Mir, Carwin, Arlovski, Condit and Barao) 6 to injury 2 to contract disputes
LOL...Yeah.. My bad.. Funny because to me it has the same meaning and I typed it on accident...

In GSP's prefight interviews to the Condit fight, he claimed he saw Carlos as the champ, I agreed.
Hmm. While i would see Barao as the real champ after 1-2 defenses, there's no way i saw Condit as one. He didn't do anything with the belt. A real champ would've put it on the line, not wait for the actual champ to return.

Yeah, I can definitely see that point of view.

It really is a shame that a fighter so skilled misses more than two years of his prime due to bad luck in training.

Not a big fan, but I will be very happy to see him back.

With Cruz's style of fighting and footwork... I have a seriously belief that he may never come back; or at least never come back to what he was.

I just not certain that knee will ever be able to take all the movement changes he throws at it.

I'm certainly no Cruz fan, but you never want to see a guy go out like this.

Here's the entire video if anyone wants to see.



Not gonna lie, it gets pretty sad towards the end. Given the right doctors, I think he'd be just fine and come back as good as ever.
