So, no those guys aren't fighting 3 top level guys a year.
In fact, lets go down the list of other champions.
in 2008 BJ fought twice. (Sherk and Stevenson)
In 2008 Rampage fought twice, losing his title to Forrest then beating Wandy
Forrest fought twice, winning his title then losing it.
Lesnar fought Mir, Couture and HH
While nog only fought Big Tim and Frank Mir
So, more often than not the UFC's Champions aren't fighting 3 top level guys a year.
But of course Dana has to make it sound worse for Fedor
yeah, but fedor fought sylvia last year, then the year before he fought lindland and hong man ... i like fedor and think he is the best but he needs to come to the UFC ... but that is just selfish of me and want to see fedor
