Since I'm literally in STATs class right now, I'll break it down even further.
Fighting for Title - 7 times
Defending Title - 9 times
All title defenses came from 2005-2008.
Only 2 of his fighting for the title fights came in 2005-2008, 1 for the KOTC title and 1 for the WEC title.
4 times from 2009-2012 he fought for the title without winning. That was literally one title shot a year. (09, 10, 11, and 12)
Since 2009, he is 0-4 in title fights. He's also 5-0 in non title bouts/title eliminator fights since 2009.
