    Cejudo might be back early next year at 125...

    How about Sterling #2 vs #3 Sandhagen for the interim belt?

    No.
    Just strip him and get on with it or wait for him.
    Interim belts are BS.

    NO. ENOUGH WITH THE FUCKING INTERIM TITLES. NO MORE FUCKING INTERIM TITLES.

    Champion has been out too long? Strip him.

    It's not a real title, interim "champs" are not real champs. Khabib said it best about Dustin. It's a sham.

    No interim belts, but Sandhagen vs. Sterling and Yan vs. Moraes should be made ASAP.

    I'd say wait until Cejudo/Benavidez gets booked and we see what kind of shape Henry is in after that one.

    Would be better if they just folder 125 and 135 into the 145 division and call it a day. There's no real benefit in keeping them on life support, they tried it, it was crap, move on.

    if he doesn't defend before June 8, 2020 then sure, go ahead. You don't need an interim title to be made number 1 contender.

    If Cejudo is coming back to defend 125 vs Joe-B, then he wont be defending the 135 belt until June or July at the earliest. In that case an interim belt wouldnt be terrible, similar to the top 2 fights at ufc 236.

    Cejudo vs Joe-B 2 (FEB)
    Sterling vs Sandhagen (Interim, JAN)

    Moraes vs Yan (JAN)
    Edgar vs Cruz (FEB)

    Cejudo defends vs the interim champ. Moraes/Yan winner fights Edgar/Cruz winner on the same card this summer, unless Edgar & Moraes win they're teammates.

    Ironically, Assuncao actually has a win over Masvidal.
