That still doesn't solve the issue of what would happen if a winner gets injured and can't continue!
Could be a lot worse. Strikeforces hw belt hasnt been defended in over two years. Josh Thomson went well over a year before he fought Melendez again. There big money, marquee name fighter (Fedor) may or may not ever fight for them again. The main point of what im saying is that comparatively speaking, they are doing a hell of a lot better then any other organization that is busting there ass to claim the number two spot.
