Condit deserves a shot at GSP, after what he's gone through, I don't have a problem with him waiting, especially since the fight waiting for him other than GSP would be against a guy he has already beaten.
There is no GSP to wait for.
GSP is out, has been out, and will be out for at least 9 more months. He doesn't exist in the championship scheme of things until he is medically cleared, and signed to fight. That is why there is an interim title.
Condit is the defending champion. Until GSP comes back and earns his title by defeating Condit.
Carlos Condit is the defending interim champion that is what these titles are created for.
This is just B.S. now IMO.
