    Longtime UFC commentator Joe Rogan doesn't think that Conor McGregor's interim UFC Featherweight Championship is legitimate. It's interesting to hear Rogan talk about this. What are your thoughts?

    Why would his opinion of Conor have anything to do with the interim belt?

    It's not. That's why it's called interim.

    There are rare occasions where an interim belt can be considered legit, this isn't one of those

    Not really a controversial opinion. He has the interim championship because he did not fight the real title holder.

    It's not the real belt, Jose needs to show up to his funeral and hand McGregor his much deserved belt.

    And yet he still behaves like a girl around Conor. If anything, it's normal for Joe Rogan to say these things AFTER A WHILE, because he has to stay relatively credible to the eyes of people.

    Nothing surprising, Conor's belt is made-up, just like his success. Will be great to see how he can fight against Aldo without IV.

    Schaub has some good ideas about excessive weight cutting, rehydrating the brain and brain damage, and better fights due to not cutting so much weight.

    Pretty sure Joe Rogan is aware of that, but that's clearly not his point. Try to understand...

    Well, Aldo ducked a roid test that could, potentially, have got him stripped of the belt.

    So I say it's even-steven

    Made up belt it is, they came up with it to be able to keep the fight in the main event, otherwise it would be an even bigger offense to the co-main to have a non title fight headline, just like Bellator does sometimes.

    Haha.

    Looks like swooning-over-magnificent-creatures Joe has a twin, not-giving-a-flying-fuck one. Let's call him, for example, Jesse Rogan.

    I like Jesse.

    Does it say the word "Interim" when they introduce him?

    There you have it.

    I don't entirely agree. Aldo has pulled out of like 6 title fights.

    Oh look Boxingislife is here spreading more stupidity. RDA was never an interim champion, he became champ by beating Pettis.

    No, they absolutely don't know about that. For some of them, he's already the GOAT.

    It's called having a balanced opinion. Rogan seems to be a fan of McGregor which is very normal for an MMA fan, because McGregor is a hell of an MMA fighter. But saying his belt doesn't mean much is also a pretty normal take. Rogan is obviously correct.

    Anyone saying Conor's success is made up at this point really should be more worried about their own credibility than Rogan's.

    To be honest, it confuses the hell out of the casuals (You know, majority of ppv buyers). Heard some guys at work talking, saying Conor is the "division world champion".

    I'm a Conor fan and an Aldo fan, but you only hold the real belt if you beat the guy who had it before you beat him.

    Aldo is the champion Conor interim champ. The real undisputed champ will be decided this December.

    Fans have right to believe their guy is the true champion. Personally i think Conor will beat Aldo, but hes not beaten him yet.

    Interim belts are pointless and just stir up controversy. I wish they would stop doing this. If they want to strip the champ after a certain amount of inactivity and put the belt up for grabs, I could live with that. Otherwise it means the the interim holder is really holding the #1 contender slot card and nothing else.

    A balanced opinion...haha. Seems like those guys who call themselves moderates in politics.

    Yes, Conor's success is made up, he's a uni-dimensional fighter that got propulsed by the UFC's hype machine and networks. He got a title-shot that he didn't deserve in the first place, and then fought a Chad Mendes who knew that in 2 weeks he had this fight, it doesn't matter if Conor wasn't training specifically for Chad, because compared to Chad he was still training to fight at that specific date. If anything, Conor is the 3rd contender, yet he's presented like a revolutionary beast.

    You must understand what a "success" means.

    An interum belt is no different than earning #1 contendership ... just you get a fake belt that goes along with it.

    They shouldn't even have these.

    Conor showed up to fight. Aldo has the made-up belt.

    Interim belts are odd, and their value differs depending on the situation.

    At the very least they serve as placeholders for a fight with the actual champion.

    It's strange how I am starting to agree with Rogan on a couple of things these days.
    He surely is not making outrageous claims here, he is simply stating the obvious to the oblivious.
