    Ronda was given the UFC championship, she didn't have to fight anyone in the UFC to get it, but she successfully defended it.

    And winning a tournament shouldn't be the same as winning a title.

    Don't know how he was overlooked by so many people, but technically you're right, so I added him in. Good suggestion.

    6 of the 16 fighters have either tested positive for PEDs or admitted to using.

    Randy is a known trt user but it was legal at that time. Also I'm not sure what the line is on that stuff. Randy, Vitor, hendo, Chael, all dropped off pretty sharp when it got abolished but they were all old men too (and Vitor obviously used to be on the junk)

    I'd say it's better than winning a belt.

    Is Dave menne more accomplished in the UFC than hoyce Gracie?

    One of them held a belt

    The early times are very different from modern day MMA.
