DC basically going for 4th title defense here, no?

DC wins first defense against Gus by SD.

Then he wins second defense against Rumble by sub.

Then he wins third defense against Jones by no contest.

 

So, this fight against Volkan is for his fourth title defense.  Am I right?

"Then he wins third defense against Jones by no contest."

There is no win or loss in a no contest. The fight basically didn't happen.

This should be DC's 3rd title defense.

I guess. Jones is really the man, though.

Nope, he's eating chicken

I'm not sure I agree.  There is no win or loss in a draw, but we still count those as title defenses.

A no contest means there was no contest. The fight never happened and DC retained his title.


No contest (abbreviated "NC") is a technical term used in some combat sports to describe a fight that ends for reasons outside the fighters' hands, without a winner or loser.

And this one shouldn't count either as he failed to make weight, and we all saw him cheat to make it. He should have been stripped and this fight vs Volkan should be for the vacant belt.
