    If another year passes before the former champ returns, then I don't even think they should get an immediate title shot.

    This is obviously just my opinion, but I think it is more than fair.
    I think this is fair for every champ.

    If there out for that long(2years+) that they need to tak another fight, it should be against a top contender, and if they're really good enough they should beat that contender and get another title shot.

    If it wasn't Cruz then I would understand. But he's defended the belt 4 times after winning it. With all of those fights against the best in the division. If he were able to come back and defend it again, then he would cement himself in history as one of the best fighters (atleast IMO).

    White: No plans to strip Cruz of title unless he retires

    White: No plans to strip Cruz of title unless he retires - Mixed Martial Arts News

    UFC bantamweight champion Dominick Cruz has not fought since November of 2011. Although he recently underwent knee surgery, and his return is indefinite, the UFC has no intention of stripping him of his belt.

    "If he starts training again and gets another injury that's going to take him out for a year – and I hate to even say this about the kid since he's a really good kid – but he should seriously probably look at retiring," said UFC president Dana White. "But I'm not taking something like [the title] from somebody."

    "If he starts training again and gets another injury that's going to take him out for a year – and I hate to even say this about the kid since he's a really good kid – but he should seriously probably look at retiring," White said. "But I'm not taking something like [the title] from somebody.

    "The way that it works in the fight business is you beat the man who beat the man. Obviously, though, if he had to retire, then [the interim titleholder] would automatically become the champion."
