No need for a useless interim belt. We don't need another fake champ like Carlos Condit winning a belt, then sitting on the sidelines for a year just to get his ass-kicked by the real champ.

Definitely worse than a real Champion who doesn't defend his real belt is a Interim Champion that doesn't defend his interim belt.

In a time span of 7 months, Renan Barao defended his interim belt two times after earning it in July 2012. That's a pretty active interim Champion and always blessing us with mind blowing performances.

I totally agree. Renan Barao is the man. Unfortunately the UFC isn't blessed with many fighters with his outlook.

Also what gets lost there is who the hell is the winner of cruz/barao going to fight? Renan has been on a mission to knock off every single guy who could take his spot.

I imagine there will be a rematch after Cruz defeats Barao.

I reckon they`ll have a interm title fight if Cain cant fight within the next 9 months. What might put the UFC off an interm title fight is that it may include JDS. If JDS won then it would mean another fight with Cain when he returns becuase the interm champion is guaranteed a title fight. Unfortuantly if the UFC decide to have a UFC interm title fight they may have to include JDS in it.

Good point. If there is an interim title JDS will likely be the one to hold it. And I doubt the UFC wants JDS/Cain 4 at this point.

I like any of the fights between Werdum and Browne/Barnett... just hope Barnett wins it all.

And I don't care about an interim title... The reason for those in the past was to make 5 round fights. Because main events are that nowadays without the belt, it seems unnecessary. The interim champ isn't the real champ anyway in the eyes of everyone, just a glorified #1 contender.

This is exactly what they did when GSP tore his ACL - they had Condit VS Diaz for the interim belt.

I can see the same thing taking place yet again. The winner of Browne/Barnett VS Werdum for the interim belt.
Browne/Barnett takes place on the 28th. They could have Browne/Barnett VS Werdum in April/May and then the interim champ fights Cain at the end of the year. This is the only way I see it going down.

Cain is not getting stripped of the title. We are going to see an interim championship match yet again folks.
