UFC Roundtable 'Champions Edition' video asks: Is it harder to win the title, or defend it?

How hard is it to win a world title in Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC)? Pretty hard. How hard is it to defend it? Even harder. Unless of course your name is Anderson Silva, who doesn't know what it means to lose inside the Octagon.

Yet.

The UFC Roundtable is back with its "Champions Edition," featuring Chuck Liddell, Forrest Griffin, Frank Mir, and reigning light heavyweight champion Jon Jones. "Bones" is responsible for bringing balance to the promotion's 205-pound division after several years of turmoil.

It was like a game of hot potato.

Chuck Liddell lost the title to Quinton Jackson in May 2007, who dropped it to Forrest Griffin, who surrendered it to Rashad Evans, who lost it to Lyoto Machida, who then had it taken by Mauricio Rua, who dropped it to Jones in March 2011.

That's seven different champions in less than four years.

So far, "Bones" is doing alright for himself. Then again, that could all change at UFC 151 on Sept. 1, 2012 from the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas, Nevada, when he fights former Strikeforce Champion Dan Henderson. Anyone think "Hendo" has a shot?

Anyone?
