How can this be for number one contender, when Condit is the real number one contender?

Condit is the interim champion.

Condit vs GSP title unification, winnere fights Ellenberger/Kampmann.

His record might be but his performance was not. He won the Sanchez match and maybe the Shields match as well. He got screwed by the judges.

Get lost, you creep.

Great, so we have Condit waiting out GSP, then the winner of this fight waiting out the winner of that fight

What's next, are we going to have an interim number 1 contender?

In unrelated news. This fan is sooo happy we don't have an interim champ log jamming the welterweight division right now. Phone Post

Yup, it will be Hendricks when he beats Koscheck.

Interim champions are a total joke and this is beyond ridiculous. Condit is the champ ... right? So the winner of this fights him ... no, that will be GSP who is the champ. So if GSP beats Condit he "becomes" the champ, or is he defending the title? ... Absurd.

this interim stuff didn't do anything but make sure that condit fights GSP. it's still 4-6 months before we even will probably get a date for gsp returning.


this is a cluster of a mess. :-/

The best solution to avoid a fucking jam in the division would be for condit to fight Ellenberger/kampman. Then the winner fights GSP. If condit is truly the #1 contender then he will win. Phone Post

"Jake Ellenberger and Martin Kampmann are going to fight **for the chance** to earn a title shot..."

Shut your weasel mouth, Dana.

FWIW - Kampmann beat Sanchez, got hosed on the ridiculous Daley stoppage, and gifted a split-decision to Shields. He's also one of the few guys to hold a win over the interim-champ. If Jake can beat him, he's obviously in the mix.

It looks like they're sending Martin through a grappler-tribunal, considering his last 5 fights. Personally, I'd rather see Kampmann fight Diaz than either of the Decision-ators. I think he clearly has the tools to beat either GSP or Carlos, but neither fight sounds particularly exciting.

Exactly.

Say GSP vs. Condit happens in November (an early optimistic outlook), then the next time the champ fights would be in Feb. 2013 (again, an optimistic guess).  That means the winner of the no. 1 contender's match would have not fought in 9 months.

I get it.  It's just that "interim champion" really means that certain circumstances have solidified a fighter as a number one contender.  Oh, and you get a belt proving so.  ;)

Kampmann hopefully wins this. One of my favourite fighters.
