    Happy for conor still being available to fight and basically saving ufc 196 respect is definitely due but where does this leave the ufc 145 division, i am sure the ufc and the fans still want to see if conor can be the first ever dual weight world championship but can you leave the featherweight title uncontested for such a long period of time? Just want to see everyones opinions and possible anecdotes to this issue.

    Conor only has Frankie left to clean out the division so its not really a big deal.

    Either vacated after this or defended.

    Aldo left the title uncontested longer periods than Conor has so far.

    I would assume though now ufc 200 will be against RDA which would mean conor could not defend the belt until atleast like ufc 203 where as if RDA wasnt injured and conor would win he would vacate the 145 belt and buisness would continue

    By the time conor has fought at ufc 200 it would have been a substantial amount of time and the heavyweight division decided to have a interim fight, do you think 145 should have a interim bout maybe? Possible fighters could be aldo, frankie and max holloway.

    It'll either be defended within the year, or vacated. That's not that long to put a title on hold. We've seen much longer.

    Aldo just turned down the rematch
    Frankie is injured
    Chad just got beat up by both Frankie and conor
    The belt was fought for two months ago
