    I'd have to add Royce to the mix. UFC 1 was as close to a work as you can get without paying guys to lose. It was a tournament specifically designed to showcase GJJ, and there was never a moment Gracie wasn't going to win it, from the start, with doubts about the matchups of the second one as well. He went on to redeem himself with great fights against more legitimate challengers, but to start, his accolades weren't as sterling as people would suspect.

    Hughes won the championship on what should have been an NC against Newton, that was every bit as weak as anything listed so far. Again, he went on to redeem himself, but he was choked out when he first won the belt.

    Matt Serra capitalized on a mentally weak Georges, I don't really give him too much credit as well beyond being in the right place in the right time and overcoming a significant size disadvantage.

    lesnar would make my top 10 worst UFC champ list as well. But that's probably another thread that hasn't been written. It's interesting how three of the least-deserving UFC champs got their title from beating Randy...

    Vitor was defiitely the least deserving champ in UFC history.

    Randy lost their second fight (UFC 46) by cut, they first fought at UFC 15.

    That being said I'll take Machida in this fight. Bad style matchup for Weidman in my opinion.
    An example that first comes to mind with that statement is Belfort vs. Couture II. Belfort technically won, but everyone knows he really didn't beat Couture that night. But if you're saying that it doesn't matter how a person wins, then by all means..

    Apparently we both are For some reason I had it in my head that he fought Wandy at LHW. Good catch.

    I don't think Rashad or Wanderlei used trt.. but then again Bisping is in denial about those fights.

    I'd love to see a Bisping versus -TRT Vitor. It'd be interesting to sell - Bisping has only lost to TRT users, NAC bans it, Bisping gets a chance to prove he was cheated of a victory; plus plenty of fun quotes. And in the fight, we get to see if Vitor is still as fast off his meds.
