Maia/Fitch
MacDonald/Marquardt

You run two titles for a year and you settle all the title challengers. It doesn't "hurt" the UFC to have Maia/Fitch/MacDonald/Marquardt as an "interim" WW champion. But it does hurt to have all these title eliminators run for two years because of a log-jam at the top.
