    Another short term, mad idea. The fact also, which people don't seem to get, is it won't even sell. If it's a co-main they may get lucky, but if this headlines, it's a 200k PPV, 300k at best...….no PPV points there. So what is the value of this, other than trying to call TJ a 2 division champion, which will mean nothing seeing as the UFC have deemed the 125 division unworthy!

    It's killing the whole "double champ" thing as well......
    We must reject the idea that every time a law's broken, society is guilty rather than the lawbreaker. It is time to restore the American precept that each individual is accountable for his actions.

    After Conor doing it everyone wanted to do the same but it's to the point where no one really cares especially if the title shot was gifted. GSP, DC recently did it I think the aura of doing it is lost.

    GSP did work because it was a return, so was interesting. With DC, the hype was derailed by doing TUF. Took too long for it to happen, shouldn't have announced it and then 6-7 weeks later had the fight.

    I disagree with DC, he's the only one who really makes it look valuable and worth merit. A proper fighting champion.

    Although, calling out Brock makes it look weak though.

    I meant more number wise, DC vs Stipe should have done huge numbers but they let the hype go too long because of TUF.

    The only true double weight champs to me are Penn, Randy, and D.C.

    All of them fought several fights at both weight classes and truly proved their elite worth in both divisions.
