    Default Is a Draw a succesful defence?

    Poll time.

    Blue stated in his thread

    "Not sure you understand, the knock on me was always I could not defend a belt.

    I had won 5 major belts and hadnt defended one yet.

    This is a big deal, regardless of draw or the fighter I was facing."

    The poll before you is to find out if the collective views a draw as a successfull defence?

    Nope, like Edgar vs Maynard 2, I deserve the rematch.

    Feel your pain. I was a victim in a draw for the MMAF strap a while back. I think there needs to be a different rule to handle title fight draws; there should be an immediate rematch and the other contenders will have their fights honored the following event. Fighting to a draw and then getting pushed completely out of all contention is a big kick in the nuts.

    There should definitely be a rule for this and if not an immediate rematch, at least put the fighter into a contenders or #1 contenders bout.

    A draw is a title defense, but I wouldn't consider it successful.

    I view it as part of my undeafeated streak (part of a pretty impressive overall run) but I don't view it individually as a win or something to brag about.

    The draw thing is tough because I was involved with the most controversal championship draw in Fantasy History as it was the Finals of a GP. It was the only time a Title draw was rematched because the GP Title was at stake and we needed a GP winner. It caused a major uproar with the other contenders as it also effected the FOTY race.

    Because of that we came up with the procedure of how to handle draws in title fights. Thats where the Draw Contender getting a spot in the #1 contender fight mix came from.

    I guess because you still have the belt. But I wouldn't gloat for keeping the belt with a draw.

    I defended my belt as it was not taken from me.

    That being said, I surely still want a win.

    I couldnt help but gloat as I knew someone would bring this up.

    Thanks Gramps.

    Like it matters.

    Strikeforce and Dream had deeper rosters before their demise(s) than the FF does right now.

    This "era" shouldn't even count until competition beefs up. The last title challenger was like 4-15 for Christs sake...and blue couldn't even BEAT him!
    Un-Retired. Thank that jerk Pickledpunk.
