Last I heard it was looking like Brock would be able to fight again in the summer, if that is the case then there shouldn't even be an interim title, there wouldn't be any point. TUF puts title belts on hold for the same amount of length that Brock's illness would put the HW belt on hold. Dana does love the interim belts though.

I dont think belts go on hold for more than a year very often, but I could be wrong

True.


Which is why I no longer really watch the UFC. It seems like martial arts-lite to me. This is all the bull shit I have to go through with boxing, without the enjoyment of watching boxing - which I find more enjoyable.


At least SF and WEC are ok...

This is a though fight to call. I think Mir might take this one by submission. Don't get me wrong I love to see Carvin win (can't stand Mir) but Mir has a bit more experience having fought more experienced opponents in the past. Well you never know. My money is on Mir.

Agreed, i would really like to see, and definitely will see Lesnar-Mir III, but just not now.

yea but that last 5-6 months have already passed, the belt would only be on hold for another 6-7, if we knew Brock would get sick back in July/August then there could be a case for an interim title in August/September, having one now when the champ can fight in half a year is silly imo. and for the record I know the Rampage/Forrest season put the title on hold for 10 months which would be close to this Brock injury, the Nog/Mir season was again 10 months without a title on the line.

I still hate Mir for some reason. Hopefully, Carwin knocks him out early and advances to Lesnar. I don't have much desire to watch Mir fighting Lesnar again. Carwin vs Dos Santos for HW belt is something I want to see.

Favorite fighters:
1. Badr Hari
2. Remy Bonjasky
3. Mauricio Rua
4. Anderson Silva
5. Alistair Overeem

theres no point for a title, there should be fights for a #1 contender, Brock is scheduled to come back around july or so, so if they fight for a #1 contender, that is almost the perfect amount of time between fights for the contenders.
