this ia a question that has been asked more than once and i'm sure it will be asked again

i would like to suggest that someone make a nice orderly list for each organization broken down by wieght and sticky it, i would think ther wouldnt need to be anything more than the fighters name and the dates in which he retained the belt like 1/1/07-2/1/07 for example

Good idea Audie. You can't find that info with a quick trip to fight finder. I alone have answered those questions for people more than once and I'm having to do it from memory and looking at someone's record.

Sooooo are you volunteering.

Terrific Clint. Much easier. Now I just have to remember it's there and not recreate the whole damn thing every time someone asks, lol.

Some people try to say Shammy was the HW Champ, saying the superfight belt "turned into" the heavyweight championship.
