The title should be defended regularly, but if there isn't a distinguished #1 contender then forcing a champ to fight inferior & opponents is both bad business & bad for the sport. How are fights like Silva-Maia, Silva-Leites, or GSP-Hardy a good thing?
List of cherry-picked bouts (IMO):
Thales Leites, Demian Maia, James Irvin, Forrest Griffin, Stephan Bonnar
