Default Bones title defences

Sorry, I'm very drunk due to free beer. This is my attempt to break down Bones title defences.


Rua
Pros: Champion. Great win over Machida before fight. Can be argued he deserved a draw with Henderson and a win in the first Machida fight.

Cons: Injured / long layoff before the fight with a 5-5 record since joining the UFC. These include a lost to Forrest, being dominated by Gustafsson in his last fight, and the rest of his wins (bar Machida) coming over gatekeepers and old men.

7.5/10

Quinton Jackson
Pros: Comming off 2 win running streak including a win over Machida. Ex title holder.

Cons: 2-3 in last 5 fights, Got gift against Machida so should really be 1-4 with his only win coming over Hamill. Lost to Badger after Jones bout.

6/10

Machida
Pros: Probably toughest style for Jones. Coming off win over Couture, should have got nod over Jackson. Looked good in next fight. Ex champion.

Cons: 3-3 in last 6 fights. Lost to an old Jackson.

8.5/10

Evans
Pros: had four fight winning streak. Just beat top contender. Ex title holder.

Cons: Doesn't have a great win on his resume.

7/10

Victor Belfort
Pros: Ex champion in two divisions. Beat Bisping in fight after.

Cons: Came up in wieght, didn't deserve shot.

7/10

Where do you rank his run on a ATG list. Better than Rua's Pride run? Is Bones overrated or does he deserve his ranking?
