Yeah PRIDE'S champs have reigned a long time with good consistency. But sometimes the champ would fight and the title wouldn't even be on the line

Yeah thats for sure man. PRIDE to me seems pretty corrupt and cruel sometimes (Aurelio and japanese judges often being racist against non-japanese)

Wow, middle weight is pretty inactive compared to LHW, HW and welter. I knew it wasn't the most talented but I didn't think it had so fewer title fights.

It is amazing and I never realized it before but every LHW champion beside Belfort (who didn't really win the title). Has held it for a good period of time. Frank had 4 defenses. Tito had 5. Randy had the title for a while not counting Vitor cutting him. and Liddell held the title for a pretty long time. It seems like the LHW title doesn't just change hands often and the guys who have won it outside of Vitor are all Hall of Famer fighters.

And still even now there isn't many contenders for the MW title. It's definitely lacking compared to the new additions the UFC has made lately.

It's amazing to me that they let the lightweights go four years without a title holder. Then it took almost a year before another title fight in the division. Kinda like Dana doesn't take the division seriously or something...

I saw this a while back, and thought it was already posted, I guess not, lol.

But its funny to see that the Light Heavyweight Championship was around before the heavyweight title. Seeing as how most promotios focus around the heavyweight championship.
