    Great "title" fights tonight but the titles mean nothing. If the winner has no intention of defending the interim title, it is meaningless.

    Shout out to Andrei Arlvoski and Renan Barao for actually defending.

    Any fighter that is forced to defend his interim title is already the actual champion at that point. The other champion is AWOL.

    Fighters that fit that category were:
    Arlovski, Barao, and Nogueira.

    This interim business is getting pretty silly, thats forsure. Two interim title fights on one PPV. I love Holloway but any legit title fight should be between that specific weightclass's # 1 and # 2 or the the two highest ranked fighters in that class who are available. WME isn't thinking longterm with this stuff.

    exactly. an interim title isn't something you defend, it's something you try to unify with the real title

    We're not talking about real champs. We're talking about real interim champs.

    Interim title fights are just glorified number one contender fights.

    The only difference being that the winner of a number one contender fight used to actually get a title shot while winning the interim belt doesn't guarantee that.

    Exactly, ladies and gentleman we have the interim title defence, which unified both belts.

    So, what you’re saying is that you have no comprehension of what the word “interim” means.

    The day we see a defence from McGregor is the day I give up on the UFC, because I know the apocalypse is any fucking day, now.

    That guy won’t defend a sub attempt, let alone a UFC title.

    Well Conor doesn't have a UFC title atm so it'll be hard to defend one.

    You are not a real interim champ until you successfully find your official decoder ring in the cereal box
