Real Questions about Silva vs Jones

I have been listening to a lot of MMA radio and reading a lot of online MMA reporting, and I have some questions. These seem to me to be questions that shouldn't exist. But maybe my ignorance is the only reason I don't already know the answers.

So here we are. If Anderson Silva were to fight JBJ I see these possible scenarios. But I don't know what the outcomes would mean.

1. If Silva Moved up to 205 and Beat JBJ would he then have both the LHW and MW Belts? If so, would he be obligated to defend the LHW belt?

2. If Silva Moved up to 205 and lost to JBJ would JBJ be both the LHW champ and the MW champ? Or would he just retain his LHW belt?

3. Vice Versa the 2 scenarios above with JBJ coming down to MW and winning and losing, what happens to each belt?

4. And Finally, what happens if they fight at a catch weight of say 195lb Would the winner take the other's belt? Or would no belt be lost or won?

I have heard a million discussions about this potential fight, but no one has explained this basic fundamental principle.

Thanks for any input.

1. Yes and yes. But he'd probably drop one.
2. Just retain.
3. Same as 1.
4. No belt on line for catch weight.
