    I miss official nº 1 contender/title eliminator fights instead of that joke "interim belt" where the champ will be back in some months lol

    The UFC are probably trying protect their new-found Australian market by protecting Whitaker from Rockhold, a bad matchup.

    Romero > Rockhold > Whitaker > Romero

    Because if its a "belt" fight sells more. Just a marketing thing... Marketing tricks all day long.

    It cant not be for an interim title you fucks


    Basically its buisness yeah.


    The stadiums wont hold the fight unless its for some form of belt in the main event its in the contract.
    Main even must be for a belt.

    I've had it with all these interim belts left and right. Sometimes it's warranted, but in this case it's just stupid. Whittaker is the champ, but he got injured. Rockhold and Romero are fighting for the #1 contender spot. The winner will of course fight Whittaker for the title, no interim title is needed. The only valid reason for them to create an interim title is if Whittaker is going to be out for 1+ years and the winner will have to take another fight because of Whittaker being sidelined.

    Why on earth is this for an interim belt, why do we need a fake belt because a champ pulls out last minute, just give the winner of this the next title shot, the UFC is such a cringe these days it's like WWE with its belts.

    its a knee injury. if he really blew out his meniscus or acl in the romero fight i mean this fight was wayyyyy to soon to take. make rockhold v romero for the interim belt and give robert the time off he needs to heal his knee

    just to be clear:
    - do we know whittaker wont be out over a year?
    - are you saying the below reason isnt good enough?

    (would you rather NO MW fight, and NO event?a Rockhold-Romero interim bothers you that bad you dont wanna see the fight?)

    why we can't have it as a Romero x Rockhold headliner with no belt there? just confirms the winner as the next contender ffs
    used to be like that back in the day and worked just fine

    It is sad that the confusion is for which belt because they have saturated the divisions with fake belts now who knows what.
    It's like fighters in the same division cross paths and say what up champ, awww it's all good champ, well have a good one champ lol
