Immediately after defeating Yoel Romero at UFC 213, now UFC interim middleweight champion Robert Whittaker said he had injured his knee in training, and reinjured it early in the fight. Romero landed a thunderous low kick, and UFC com­men­ta­tor Joe Ro­gan immediately noticed something was wrong. When the Aussie returned to his corner after Round 1 he said, “My left knee’s f***ed.” He lost Round 1, and lost Round 2, too, but came back to win three straight and the title.

I smell an interim title. How funny would it be if the UFC shelved Whittaker and had two fight for an interim. Wait...two interims. All the while Bisping fights GSP in the main event with two interim titles on the line in a co-main. Absolutely retarded. Although I can see the UFC doing this with the new leadership.

Buffer would have to declare the winner of the new interim title the disputed interim champion. I like that.

Another interim title wasted! Haaa, I wish the UFC would stop handing out these belts like they're candy. Should've been a #1 contender fight (Romero vs Whittaker). The only times I felt interim belts made sense was when Couture left the UFC and Barao winning it when Cruz was out.

How to fix MW: (my opinion only)
Bisping vs Whitaker
Rockhold vs Brunson (winner gets title shot, especially if it's Rockhold)
Romero vs winner of Hall vs Jotko
Weizmann vs Jacare

I'd go with Romero vs winner of Rockhold/Branch.

Weidman vs winner of Hall/Jotko.

Anderson Silva vs Kelvin.

Jacare vs loser of Rockhold/Branch.

Hold off Bisping vs Whitaker until they're both close to 100%.

That makes a ton of sense too...MW is wonderfully stacked at the moment. Probably the best thing about Bisping wearing the belt, the mix up at the top is great for the division and the sport.
