I think that Cruz should be stripped of the title , because the division is basically being held hostage by him not fighting Rennan Barao.

Yeah strip him and let him fight for it IF he comes back. I think there should be a clause where a champ needs to defend at least once a year or they get stripped. True champs would be able to come later down the line and win the belt back anyway.

Someone on Sherdog made a thread about switching the belts. Make Cruz the interim and Barao the champ.

I like that idea. Makes sense for all parties involved. Cruz is still champ, with a guaranteed title shot on his return. The UFC can promote title fights, and Barao is the legitimate champ. Everyone wins.

And if UFC can find an excuse they'll give Urijah another title-shot.



Maybe make Cruz the number one contender, guarantee him a shot, but you can't make him "interim champ." It doesn't make sense and defies what the term means.

Cruz has been out too long already. He needs to be stripped.

But Urijah needs to mind his own damn business.
