My first thread. Interim titles. This bothers me. An interim title isn't considered being a world champion in the UFC. Officially it is but do fans consider an interim champion a real champion? In other sports if you are injured they move on. Even tennis doesn't have an interim Wimdeldon champ because the champ got injured and gets the right to a match later to decide. I'm an old school boxing fan. If someone was an interim world champ they are considered a world champion. In the UFC I've seen guys throw it away as they say they want the real thing. I think that was Gaejthe . Then he lost to Khabib. Can I get a poll on here Mods? Should an interim title in the UFC be considered a legitimate world title?
