He can no longer be called a "paper champion," which has long been the ammunition of his haters. Not only did he defend the belt against Gilbert Melendez in the co-main event at UFC 181 -- nearly 16 months after winning it at UFC 164 -- he became the first man to finish "El Nino."

In a Bellator light heavyweight division overrun by retread match-ups, aging stars, and made-for-TV feuds, Liam McGeary is above all else a welcome breath of fresh air.
