I don't think that's fair. Cruz DOMINATED that division! To call him a paper champion is just false.
That being said, I do think he should be stripped of the title now. It's a crummy situation, but it's not fair to the division. Also, it will let him fight a lesser opponent the first time back in the Octagon instead of having to take on Barao immediately.
