    Same design but with the BFM belt color

    It will not change the face of the sport but i think it would make sense

    "Discuss" is what you end your post with when you know you're trolling.

    Discuss.

    It would. It's pretty much the definition of it. Champ in place, number one contender, yet not the real belt.

    The whole point of interim title fights is to sell poor events that don't have real title fights. Then they double dip and call the next bout a "title unification" and fans eat that shit up with a spoon. Pro Wrestling has been doing the your'e-not-the-real-champion storyline for 75 years, it's a tried and true classic. So no the belt can't look weaker or any different than the real belts do. They also have to sell that person as a real champion in all subsequent fights after that too.

    Make it plastic to highlight the fact that it's a fake belt.

    People thought it was a troll job to have John Madden to commentate on UFC 50 because it was a big deal. I thought it would have been awesome.

    Good idea, TS. I like it. Better still, scrap interim belts altogether unless a champion is going to be out for a long time, in which case stripping is also a viable option.
