I´m a big fan of Wlad btw. but this is just not true here. Wlad may hold this record for beltholders but not for champs.
Wlad may not have been THE champ when he beat Byrd in 2006 but he was hitting his prime and was taking on the mantle of proving himself the world's best fighter.
I don't think he's done too badly with his 14-fight streak.
