Is this his first title defense or do the previous wins under the interim count as title defenses as well even though he wasn't legitimately the champ at the time? Phone Post 3.0

Thanks. Wasn't sure what the deal would be in this situation, since he was essentially the champion since Cruz left. Has the UFC promoted an interim champ to champ before?

Yeah that's what I meant. I think Nog is the only other to even attempt it in the UFC.

And no not really, when a guy wins the interim belt and then immediately fights the champ it's basically a glorified top contender. Phone Post 3.0

If the champ doesn't come back to unify the titles and is stripped. Wouldn't that in turn make every interim defense an actual title defense? Phone Post 3.0
