Moving Weight Class

I enjoy watching fighters move up or down in weight** It allows the fans to see some exciting fights that normally wouldn't take place** The problem occurs when a belt holder does it - should the rest of his weight class be penalized by his move up or down in weight? How long is Florian going to have to wait for BJ** How long is Okami going to have to wait for Anderson Silva (if he ever gets the shot he deserves!)?
So my question is this** When a champ moves weight class, should an interim championship fight automatically occur between the #1 and #2 contenders?

I see your point man, but this post has been done about a million times** The fact is, The UFC is going to throw together the best fights they can** And they know that sidelining Kenny and Thiago's title shots is good buisness becuase GSP and Blow Job Penn will probably sell better than those two put together, it's all buiness**
