This happened to Frank Mir after his accident. The interim title went up, I think it was Arlovski that took it. I believe it was a year afterwards that Frank was scheduled a fight to keep the undisputed title, but wasn't physically able at that time... so they stripped him of the title, and Arlovski then moved from Interim Heavyweight to Undisputed.


So Interim titles are infact necessary, because for all we know, Matt Serra might get a number of ops done on his back, or reinjure himself and whoever is holding the Interim title after that year would probably be promoted to Undisputed.

So if hughes wins he will still geht the shot at serra. But what is if he loses, then will gsp get the shot? And if it is like that, what can Hughes win.

I'd imagine it'll go like this.
GSP vs Hughes.
GSP wins.
GSP vs Serra
GSP wins.
Serra vs Hughes

Why is everyone down on this? I think its the perfect solution.

The WW Division is off hold now. We get to see the advancement of WW contenders. On top of that, the interim title makes Hughes vs. GSP III a 5 rounder, which is perfect. This is to keep the WW Title from being stagnant, as the LW Title was for a year. Its the best solution to a difficult problem.

I thought the same thing, why bother with an interm belt, thinking about it more however, it does keep the belt rolling along. Possibly the UFC has more inside info on the injury? perhaps its a serious disk problem we know nothing about, and some of us here know it could keep you out of fighting for monthes on end and possibly career ending at times.I just hope Serra does heal up soon so he can get the belted beaten out of him and not just stripped off!
cheers

The one thing i hate is no matter what you say if it's an interim title you are not the champ. So what is the point keep people fighting keep the number one contender going but don't call it a "belt" call it a spot.
