The list of UFC's Top 5 light heavyweight title reigns in terms of number of days in descending order is:

a. Tito Ortiz - 1260 days

b. Chuck Liddell - 770 days

c. Jon Jones - current Champ - More than 750 days as of April 2013

d. Frank Shamrock - 703 days

e. Quinton Jackson - 406 days

Tito Ortiz currently holds the record but Jon Jones, the current champ has been extremely dominant over the past 2+ years. So, if he continues like that, he may end up beating Ortiz's record.
