    Only started to watch MMA when Gsp became champ.

    I remember him refusing to take the interim belt because it wasn't the real one at UFC 79.

    Any others before ?

    Glorified number one contenders fight with a belt as a consolation prize and confirmation you will fight the real champ.

    Lol

    Tito's fear and ducking of Chuck Liddell created it.

    Thank Tito.

    Yea but they were the first ever Interim champ for each weight class. I just forgot that Whittaker was the first and only ever Middleweight Interim champ. It’s been a long day.

    I believe it was Randy when Tito was gone due to contract disputes IIRC.

    What happened to BJ's belt when he left the UFC?

    Yeah Randy vs. Chuck. Big drama at the time with Tito, and the champ vs. champ storyline. Now it's kinda played out.

    Well, until Conor it got big again but then went down hill from there.
