    Is Conor McGregor a paper champ? He didn't beat Aldo to get his belt similarly to DC who beat another contender (but not the true champ) to win it.

    No, he's an interim champ.

    but a paper champ is a true champ that holds the actual belt... and interim champ is not a paper champ... it is a champion until the champion comes back...

    do you just not understand the terms?

    I would not call some a paper champ if the real champ ducked him.

    No, he's the interim champ. Aldo still has his belt and is recognized as a the FW champ, this is a different case than Cormier.

    Anyone who argues that he is, is out of his mind...

    Aldo is the champ.

    Chad wins easy with a full training camp.

    Funny part is... McGregor was getting his ass beat.

    Conor is the Interim champ. He does not have the official title of "Undisputed" like DC does. If he did then yes, he would be considered a paper champ.

    It's Aldo's fault the Interim belt exists in the first place.

    Unlike DC, conor wasn't soundly beaten by the champ. Aldo pussied out, and claimed injury. (bruised rib) While conor beat a guy within 2 rounds, that took aldo WW3 to beat him.

    Only the cumbuckets of Mcgregor see him as the true champion.

    In Aldo's defense it would have been very foolish for him to take the fight with bruised ribs. Conor would have eaten him alive.
