How is GSP holding up the welterweight division?

^Because no one else really gives a fuk about Condit . Take him out of the equasion, and that Diaz is still suspended, you're relying on Hendricks to be the cash cow, and thats never going to happen.

I'm going to disagree with you. Whats holding up the division is Dana White himself. Why allow the interim champion to wait 8 months to fight a champion that is using that time to recuperate? Why allow GSP to hold the title when he was inactive for over a year? Why hold up the division for another year for a GSP vs. Silva match when its clear you have a clear contender for the title (Johny Hendricks)? Its frustrating anymore.

I agree with this, if you're going to make an interim title make them defend it. They're talking about making Barao defend his after he's sat on it for half a year and they were gonna do a Condit/Diaz rematch but it fell through and Condit got to wait, I don't blame them for waiting because of the financial gain and that's why they all fight is to make money.

Personally though, I think interim titles are just marketing props. There's a reason "interim" is attached.

Interim is used in case the champ can't come back and then the interim champ becomes the champ if the old champ retires/leaves the organization

More the reason it should be defended the same as the real belt. The UFC certainly needs to implement some sort of rule where any belt holder needs to defend his belt at least X times a year.

Agree 100% and (OK, off topic, but...) title holders should never be allowed in no TUF. This is a waste of precious time.
