    The Zombie Belt (trademark pending)

    - recognizes persistence in fighting despite not being good at it (anymore)
    - initial belt holder will be BJ Penn (I feel like Diego Sanchez is destined to get his hands on it though)
    - Zombie Belt can only be obtained (won) by losing to the current belt holder
    - holder of the Zombie belt cannot retire, leave the organization (standard champ clause) or be cut.
    - no interim Zombie Belt belts (this is a serious belt and it cannot be sullied by some "interim" bullshit)
    - no Bellator version. Half of Bellator roster could qualify for the Zombie Belt
    - cool kids will probably call it the Z-Belt but real fans won't

    The Zombie Belt will inject real excitement into what are currently some of the saddest fights on a card.

    BJ Penn fighting pretty much anybody at this point seems like a bad thing.

    Penn proudly fighting for the Zombie Belt makes it exciting main card material.

    The Zombie Belt will proudly recognize those fighters who can continue to hold a job despite no longer being qualified for it. Is that not something most of us can relate and/or aspire to? Let's embrace the underdog!

    I am slightly embarrassed for the UFC that they did not come up with this themselves. You are welcome, Dana.

    I like it, this Zed Belt has a lot of potential for the sophisticated sadist.

    - You could have the belt holder do CTE awareness commercials eg. "Years ago Diego Sanchez was given a choice...quit fighting or slip further into madness"
    - Floyd Mayweather Sr. & Goldie will perform commentary
    - Nobody can bitch and moan about criminal behavior being used to promote a Zed Belt fight. In fact, that would be one of the best ways for a washed-up fighter to get a shot at the title.
    - PEDs will not just be legal, but encouraged. In fact, a list of them should appear in the Tale Of The Tape
    - Uniforms will not be provided by Reebok, but instead the fighters iconic trunks from days of old
    - No limit on rounds, fights must end by finish
    - Even after a knockout, the losing fighter will be interviewed and asked complicated questions
    - Fighters' children, mothers, and friends would be required to sit cageside to witness the poor decision-making on display
