I don't think that's how it works.

The British belts are competed for, naturally, by British prospects, for example someone like Paul Daley, despite being British and thus eligable, is not an up and coming prospect and as such wouldn't compete for the British belt.

If the British champion was to defend his title several times and raise his profile he would presumably become worthy of a 'world' title shot, but winning the British belt is in my view at least more of a belt for British prospects.

Speaking of Daley when is he fighting for that title again? I wonder if it'll be possible for someone to hold both titles. We will find out I guess.

IF the British champion was to become the Wotld champion he would almost certainly relinquish the British belt.

I could see that happening. Though there was an exception to that rule in early Strikeforce. Back when Josh Thomson was the lightweight champion is also became the only US Champion.

I can see Wallhead brutalising Trigg. Wallhead is an animal!

That and the fact that Trigg is washed up. Why he is still fighting is beyond me. Then again Shamrock is still fighting.
