    Make Cruz work his way up the rankings again before getting another TS. No more champs who fight once per presidential election cycle, please.

    Assuncao more deserving than Dom probably. Assuncao vs Moraes 2 I am pretty good with. Questionanle decision for TJ and Cejudo to fight, particularly at 125, in my opinion.

    Eh it's smart, TJ is a decent draw for now, but would lose to either Moraes or Assuncao... so now is the best time to try for a superfight, before his brand takes a hit

    Absolutely not. Why put up an interim belt for a guy that won it three months ago? Don't be ridiculous.

    I don't mind that fight if Cruz is 100%.

    I know, but I just like how Assuncao has looked recently and think he would do better in a rematch. I would bet on him if he were getting good odds.

    I also think TJ has gotten extremely sloppy and was lucky to outslug Garbrandt. I thought his defense was abysmal in both fights and that is not an encourging trend.

    Plus the MMAth makes it confusing. I 100% believe that Moraes beats TJ... but Assuncao won a decision over Moraes recently... so it's hard to say Moraes would beat TJ but not also throw Assuncao in there.

    Or just have Dom and Moraes fight for a TS without the silly belt.
    Or just hold a conference call and say, "the next two people to agree on a fight will fight for the next shot at TJ. You have 60 seconds. GO!"

    There's only one logical solution. A Rock, Scissors, Paper Tournament.

    Let's never do an interim title ever again.

    How about that?

    I disagree .. think TJ beats both rather easily, already beat Assuncao easily I believe.
