    Didn't Dominick Cruz go quite a while without defending his belt?

    Because of injuries, but they still stripped him after a while.

    he actually went 2 years without fighting at all but it was due to injury, and like Kevo said, they did strip him.

    I was thinking about it though, i said 12 months must defend unless injured? it shouldn't matter. if you're injured it shouldn't earn you more time, it should still be stripped, you just get front of the line access when you come back.

    I think if a champ doesn't defend in 12 months he should be stripped, period.

    if you made a rule like that, you could stick to it, and it wouldn't matter. They gave dominic extra time because he'd been a champ so long, same with Aldo, but what's the difference? strip then come back. fuck this interim bullshit, all that does it mentally masturbate people on who the champ is and drastically reduce the credibility of both the true belt and the paper version.

    strip them, stop the interim shit and move on.

    Sooner or later the UFC has to stop letting the tail wag the dog and they're already seeing the damage that can happen when they let it run that way, which is why the most active belt in the UFC is a WMMA belt this last year.

    like Cain
    like Conor

    I thought Dom should have been on the list for longest without defending.

    that didn't keep Conor's Featherweight run from making the list

    they handled conor wrong from the jump. they allowed him to technically be the only 2 division champ when in reality it's no different than any other fighter that held belts in two divisions (wasn't BJ PEnn the real first?), because nobody yet has actively held both. just because you waited to hand in the belt, or were stipped from it makes no difference. that record should still be unachieved because it was purely a technicality that he achieved it, dana even said they let him keep it until he won the other belt, then he HAD to relinquish it. meaning it's a paper record, not real.

    Conor wants no part of Khabib state-side, in Ireland or in mother Russia.

    exactly what I said. dana's pissed because someone told the truth and it didn't fit his hyperbole.

    It'd be hilarious if the issue really is that Dana doesn't understand the differences between public and private companies' reporting requirements.

    i think he just expected Showtime to keep their mouth shut. I can't believe he is surprised, but like you said, maybe he just doesn't understand that when you are public you can't just make shit up like he's built his career on

    it all boils down to this, and it royally pissed dana off. specifically because this guy backs his statement up, and he KNOWS the answer

    Dana owned, like a bitch.


    sorry for the harsh language. I just finished a hard training session, have many little aches and pains, felt good to vent. didn't help aches and pains though.

    I say strip Conor. Let him fight Diaz. Let TFerg and Khabib fight for the title. Winner of Diaz Conor fights champ. Or just make Diaz and Conor fight each other two times a year for the next few years. What’s the most amount of times two guys have fought each other in a major org?
