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.

You hit the nail on the head, but I think Dana and crew aren't viewing it this way. It's like they just decided to make the Interim title Diaz-Condit fight because that's what you do when the champ is injured and can't fight. It's like they weren't looking down the road thinking that it would be logical for him to defend the belt instead of waiting 9 months to fight the true champ.

I think it's a matter of time before Dana and crew realize they are going to have to have Condit defend his title and then we can all stop complaining. Dana is usually very logical and often admits when he is wrong.

Soon they will realize that people want to see Condit defend his belt and e may see an Ellenberger rematch. I think they are also biding their time until Nick's hearing to see what the decision holds for him to ensure the Diaz-Condit rematch is indeed out of the question.
