8 out of 22 UFC interim championship reigns never attempted to unify with the undisputed title, most interim champions go on to be undisputed champion.

43 Upvotes

In chronological reverse weight order (so starting with heavyweight from inception to present, then LHW from inception to present and so on and forth)

Andrei Arlovski wins interim title - promoted to undisputed champ after never unifying with Mir (1)

Antonio Noguiera - never fought Lesnar, lost the belt to Mir who later unified with Lesnar (2)

Frank Mir - lost when he attempted to unify with Lesnar

Shane Carwin - defeats Mir for a separate interim title and lost to lesnar

Fabricio Werdum - defeats hunt for interim, unified when he defeats Velasquez

Ciryl Gane - defeats Derrick Lewis and loses to Ngannou in unification attempt

Randy Couture - defeats chuck Liddell and successfully unifies with Tito defeating at UFC 44

Jon Jones - Defeats Ovince St. Preux and is later stripped for violating the UFC drug policy (3)

Robert Whitaker - Defeats Yoel Romero and is promoted to undisputed after GSP beats Bisping and they both retire within 2 months (4)

Israel Adesanya - defeats Gastelum and unifies defeating Whitaker

GSP - Defeats Hughes for the interim title and unifies with Serra beating him

Carlos Condit - defeats Nick Diaz 4 rounds to 1 and attempts to unify, losing to GSP

Colby Covington - defeats RDA for interim. Conflicting reports of who refused what, but Covington was stripped, defeated Lawler in his next fight before fighting Usman as No. 1 contender (5)

Tony Ferguson - defeats Kevin Lee, later stripped during wiregate when he pulls out on one weeks notice on april fools day on his fourth booking against Khabib (6)

Dustin Poirier - beats Holloway, comes up short to Khabib

Justin Gaethje - defeats Ferguson, loses to Khabib (beating a lanky and pointy wing tattoo boy for an interim title is the worst base for beating Khabib)

Conor McGregor - KOs Mendes, unifies by beating Aldo

Jose Aldo - defeats Frankie Edgar, promoted to undisputed champ when McGregor is stripped/vacated for inactivity and intent to not return to 145 (7).

Max Holloway - finishes Anthony pettis and unifies by beating Aldo

[Yair is reigning interim champ and omitted for this count]

Renan Barao - defeats Urijah Faber and is promoted to Undisputed Champion after some defenses and defends against Urijah Faber again. [8]

Petr Yan - defeats Sandhagen while Aljo is injured, later loses to Aljo in his unification bout.

Brandon Moreno - defeats Kai Kara France and finishes Figuereido to unify in his next bout.

8/22 interim title reigns or 36% of interim champions never even attempt to unify

Interim champions are 7-7 when fighting the undisputed champion in unification bouts.

Not sure what to make of this other than some are justified, others are about fight politics, and others are a cheap way to bolster a weak card. Also, interim champs are way more successful than I'd realized in capturing the undisputed title.

4 out of 8 who never unified were promoted to undisputed champ, so 11/22 become champ in their next fight or after defending the interim title.
