Right now they could argue that Couture needs to fight Nog to unify the belts as has happened in the past with titles.
ya...the timing seems to match up awfully well for the UFC.
And this is bullshit..unless the winner/loser of werdum/vera fights HH/GG/Kongo theres gonna be NO action in the HW div

Some of my Fav fighters (no order)
1) The Truth
2) The Prodigy
3) Crocop

I dont see what the big deal is. Sure, he (mir) doesnt really deserve it yet, but hes not the first and wont be the last to be given a shot over those more deserving. It all comes down to money...nobody wants to see Werdum/Nog 2and Vera's drawing power to the casual fan stopped after the lame ass Sylvia fight. Who isnt looking forward to this bjj match?

I hope so, for me having Nog as "Interim champion" and not as the real champion is disrespectful to Nog.
