    What does the dictator mean when he says he does not know if there will be a interim belt holder? Please….. cruz will take the same route as the paper champ gsp, so the dictator will have no choice but to have a interim match. The question is who will faber fight for the interim belt? Dana what a joke this guy is. Cruz will be out a year or more just like the paper champ no doubt in my mind.
