They will make an Interim Belt for the Interim Belt.
The new champion will be called: the neeeeeew UFC WW INTERIM-INTERIM CHAMPION OF THE WOOOOOOORLD.....
Jokes aside, I am convinced Condit will defend the title until GSP comes back.
I think he knows it, the UFC knows it. They're just waiting for the outcome of Kos vs Hendricks, to see who to give the shot at Condit.
If that fight looks like Kos vs Pierce, Ellenberger gets the shot. If one of the guys fighting in that fight puts in a brilliant performance, Joe Silva will have to think it through.
