Yes, that title sounds completely crazy, but give me a minute to explain. We all know that GSP is an incredibly dominant champion and one of the top two pound for pound fighters in the world. Unfortunately, he has not be very active lately, and the serious injury he sustained is going to keep him out of action even longer. However, I think there may be a silver lining to this whole debacle.
The most logical course of action to most people would be have a fight for interim title, while GSP recovers. Honestly though, I think that is a bad idea, for a few reasons. First of all, GSP is going to be coming off a huge layoff, and a serious injury, to defend against a fighter looking to legitimize his title. That is a dangerous prospect for anyone. GSP won't have a chance for warm up, he's going to be thrown to the wolves immediately, which is something I don't want to see, personally.
But hold on for a second... aren't people always saying that the WW division isn't thin. It's just that GSP is so great, that he makes his peers look like they are on a lower level. If you take GSP out of the equation, things get more competitive and interesting. That is what I am suggesting. While he heals, GSP forfeits the title, to avoid a potentially vicious loss, and to bring a lot of interests to the fights occurring at 170.
In the meantime, the UFC hosts a Welterweight grand prix, to determine the next champion. After the champ is crowned, and GSP is completely healed, he takes a warm up fight with the runner up of the tournament. If he wins, he gets to fight the champ and if he loses, well, it's better than him losing his title in devastating fashion, after a long layoff.
