Now thats what I originally thought cos Randy was stripped of his title due to contract negotiations years ago before he dropped to LHW.

Wow. So having won the belt and defended it twice, Anderson Silva is already a three time champion, huh? Lol!

Let's be serious people, a Matt Hughes '9 time WW champion' claim is as much a UFC marketing hoax as Roger Huerta or Diego Sanchez being presented as Mexicans - albeit their MMA profiles revealing otherwise.

What next? Keith Jardine being marketed as a Norweigian viking? We're getting too close for comfort to WWE antics.

Yea, 7 title defenses, but he won 9 fights while he was champion. They call him the "9-time champ", because you get a new belt when you win. It's a championship fight, so if you walk away the winner, you are champion again. But since Gracie and Riggs weren't championship fights, they should call him a "7-time champ". It is definately exaggerated though, and it's definately for marketing purposes only.

I know I wasn't trying to correct you or anything. I actually quoted you cuz I was agreeing with you, I forgot that the Gracie fight wasn't a championship fight.

Marketing purposes? see its this line between reality and pro wrestling sureality that is always going to hold the ufc back. I was wondering why matt had a nice chuckle when rogan said, “9 time champion”. Say what you want about the guy but deep down I am sure that comment probably made him sick, what true athlete wants to be handed titles he hasn’t earned yet.

To Live is 2 suffer, 2 survive? well that is 2 find meaning in the suffering
