That's true, but in many ways, that makes it even worse because there's no real element of risk. I'd WANT my champ to put the title up every time. I want him to show supreme confidence even with the possibility that some 27-17 guy will manage to fight the fight of his life or, I dunno, bodyslam me on my shoulder and have it ruled a knock out.
Would it actually make it more acceptable if Wlad fought Mormeck in a non-title bout?
