Renan Barao won't defend interim title, will wait for Dominick Cruz   [View Full Version]
Budgellism » Posted 4/8/07 11:45:00AM

UFC interim bantamweight champion Renan Barao has been on the sidelines since his July 21st win over Urijah Faber to claim the belt. Dominick Cruz, the holder of the regular belt, is expected to be on the shelf for a while longer while he rehabs his torn ACL, and it was expected that Barao would probably defend his interim title at least once while Cruz was still out. But in an interview with UOL, Barao's coach Andre Pederneiras dismissed that notion and says Barao will wait for Cruz to return for a title unification match:

"He just won the title, just fought. We will wait. Look how long the wait was for Condit and GSP to unify the belt?"

new clause: If you become an Interim Champion, you must defend this title at least once before unifying the belts.

This new breed of fighters have business sense, but business sense is hardly an endearing quality to a fan

Faber vs Bowles 2 for the interim interim Bantamweight title

I think the entire mma world misunderstands the purpose of an interim champion.

Interim title is just a fancy name for "#1 contender who will wait for his shot at the real belt"

With 5 round main events interim belts are absolutely worthless.

Then how are you any type of champion??

Lame.

Sick of healthy fighters taking up to a year off to wait for a guy with an injury to return.

All they're doing is saving their place in line and losing their credibility along the way.

They either need to stop calling it an 'interim belt' or revamp the rules on what is required when you hold that title.
