Houston ALexander beating Griffin, I think Griffy will overestimate Alexander's skills and want to try to stand with him. But this is coming from a Houston ALexander fan and I think Griffin's the weakest champ currently

I guess Cain, but he's a rising star so I don't know if you can consider him a nobody.

you may or may not be right about griffen being the weekest champ but Houston cannot get to point B from his point A - He is a hard hitter but he doesnt have the wandy chin and he can obviously die by his own sword- then of course he is so weak on the ground.... no way he gets there to have a chance.....

Cain has skills and is very young still. Glad to see most people agree that of the aforementionned - Cain has the best shot....

Houston could possibly mug/mall anyone who stood with him, so i would pick him- although I think it highly unlikely.

Forrest has a way better ground game than Alexander and that would make the difference in this fight. Forrest is smart, he wouldn't get knocked out by Houston

I mainly picked Houston beating Forest not on who's fighting the champ but who the champ is.

all of these are assuming that Houston is STILL in the UFC right? i would be surprised if he still is. i don't think he even has a chance to GET to fight Forrest, let alone beat him. think about it, there is no way he is going be beat, Wandy, Page, Shogun, Machida, ect.... i don't even think he is a gatekeeper for that division.

Yea Cotes got no chance of beating Silva. He just took everything Silva threw at him and shrugged it off like it was nothing. With his chin power he could easily TKO/KO Silva.

I Have to say Cain Velasquez. If he fought Randy. He wouldn't want to hit the mat with NOG.
