I don't see anyone beating him in the UFC.
His competition is...
Mir- I think he'll gas then get submitted
Werdum- Nog beat him the first time, he'll beat him again, he'll outbox him
Vera- He'll submit him
Gonzaga- He'll eventually get the sub after a beating imo.
He should be able to beat Forrest without much of a problem, he has better standup, he has a lot better wrestling, the jui jitsu is close, but I'll give JJ to Forrest.
Lyoto Machida- Rampage will outwrestle the hell out of him no matter what
Chuck Liddell- Do I need to justify this?
Wanderlei- He won't get a title shot anytime soon, if he does it's LATE LATE '09
Jardine- I think he'll lose to Wandy and it'll crash his title shot dreams for a while, and he'll wait in line a long long time
Soko-Just lost, won't get a shot for a while either, he's like Jardine
I know there's more but I just can't think of them now
We all know Anderson has this division pretty much on lock..
Rich Franklin- He'll clinch rape him again
Dan Henderson- I'm not sure if he'll fight at MW again, but he'll also clinch rape and outstrike his ass like hell
Okami- He'll KO him early, he won't be able to shoot in imo.
He has a lot of competition but he's just way too well rounded to lose yet.
I definately think he can lose and will lose eventually, just not yet.
Diego- He needs to work on his striking, his JJ and his wrestling are very good
Kos- He needs to work on everything except his wrestling, though he got outwrestled against GSP
Hughes- He's gotten destroyed his last 2 times
Fitch- GSP is just a better Fitch, GSP should win
I think that Sherk will beat BJ and that he'll retain his belt for a while.
Sherk has a way of not losing, he has a very good chin, and hasn't been submitted. He has a lot of competition in the LW division but I don't see anyone there outwrestling him, and outcardioing him.
I hope that BJ moves back up to WW (but stays in shape) and fights Hughes for a rubbermatch and GSP for the title.
