I don't mind interim belts, so long as they are actively defending it.

Stripping the champ of the actual belt wouldn't mean much - that guy's still technically the champ in most people's eyes anyway, and the person they hand it to is still looked at as an interim/false champ.

Let's just ban injuries. So much easier. lol

The interim title was brought in as a prop to hype St. Pierre/Diaz, it's no different than Primetime, it's a marketing tool.

Carlos "spoiled the party" though.
