Woah, why does UFC.com have Chris Weidman listed as the interim champion?

Woah, why does UFC.com have Chris Weidman listed as the interim champion?

Put on those tin foil hats, conspiracy theorists. This morning on UFC.com, Chris Weidman is listed as the interim champion even though he just did the unimaginable and knocked out Anderson Silva in the second round at UFC 162.

Now I know a lot of you have been proposing a blitzkrieg of wild theories leading up to and following last night's historic event. Some of you even suggested that Silva took the fall in order for Weidman to be the champion, which will enable MMA to be legalized in New York. We'll discuss all of these in the Sunday Morning Rumor Mill later today, but check out this screen cap from UFC.com. How does this fit in the grand scheme of UFC 162 conspiracies? Props to @WHOSDWAYNEJONES for the find.

Holy shit that would be hilarious.

Weidman wins, but pisses dirty and Anderson is still the Champion.

That would be the completion to the conspiracy theory.

Also Timbo still 10 and Munoz still at 8 as they were before the fight. This isnt legit. Munoz would have at least lept in front of rockhold

In the post fight interview, in the octagon, Anderson was listed with a "(C)" after his name on the TV credits.

Because the ferocious beat down Chris will suffer at the hands of Ando in their rematch will redefine the word "sinister," and the UFC knows it.

Even the word violence is going to go, "yo, that was fucked up."
