I pick GSP. Weidman r weight change will be the end of andersons belt, JDS has a lot of competition, Aldo cant stay at 145 for long, Cruz is gonna get destroyed by the only capable man in his division Barao, Jon will either lose that title or move up I believe.

I picked Jones as he is the youngest



I'm agreeing with Rabi



Jones' skill is pretty damn undeniable. He is good everywhere. Reminds me of a prime Fedor. He can beat you standing and on the ground. His long arms are a huge advantage for him coupled with his speed. His athleticism is second to none also making him very hard to submit and very hard to come into a fight holding an advantage on him.

I feel he will hold the belt a very long time .


Anderson will lose it within the year I suspect. Due to Chael . Well actually Ryo. Andersons takedown defense has been exposed. Rather Chael made the takedown the basis for his path to victory. He came up short but be showed people Anderson is rather very easy to takedown if you have a background in wrestling. Not bjj however. Bjj fighters tend to be weaker and slower then wrestlers with their takedowns resulting in Anderson being able to defend well. Lutter put Anderson in a very dangerous position and I for one am very surprised people didn't follow his lead as far as taking Anderson down. A majority of Anderson's fights have been against guys for some stupid reason try and stand with him. Subsequently they get knocked out.

Take Anderson down!!!

Dos Santos will lose it within the year

Mighty mouse will fall to Dodsen.

GSP I feel has the ability to keep it a year or two longer. Barring any hinderance from his knee.


Just my .02

Jones: My 2ยข
JDS does have a lot of comp and I belive tgat Cain and Overeem are huge threats to him as one may be able to expose his ground game and the other is a much more accomplished striker with submission skills to boot.
Jones is just a freakishly skilled and gifted fighter, plus under the tutelage of his coaches he is fighting safer, more intelligently and focused on the long run, if he losses it will be when ghe dips his toe into the GW Div, not at LHW.
Silva, dude will retire first but not before putting the hype of Weidman to rest.
GSP, will do just fine as he isnt large enough to really move up and if healthy is going to come back strong.
Benson, dude is about to prove himself to the world as being under rated IMO.
Aldo, I think he may move up but really there isnt much if you take a hard look at his division that he cant beat.
Cruz, will be out a while and someone will lose their belt before he even returns I believe.
Mighty Mouse, dude is just better than Dodson, and after that his division is still being developed. This will take some time I believe, this will lead to a mismatch real soon.

I picked Mighty Mouse. I know this sounds sad, but I'm not that keen on watching the little guys. I don't care if it's technical, its just too fast with not enough power, as Bisping said, it's like watching kids fight.

Voted Aldo because he may never defend the belt again with all his injuries and freak accidents.

<--- maybe this kinda fight is more your speed mate

I said Bendo, his division is way too stacked.

The question is who will be the last. not who will be the first.

Went with JDS because the HW division doesn't consistently product as many well-rounded fighters and he has a chance to beat the only two foreseeable threats (Cain and Overeem) in his next two fights. If that happens Overeem will probably move on to some other promotion before getting another title shot (his SOP) and it will be tough to sell a third fight with Cain but Cain is popular and will likely run through every other HW, reducing the number of viable challengers sooner.

Jones, Silva and Aldo are less likely to lose in the next 1-2 fights, but they fight in divisions where new talent springs up faster.

Jones, and it's an easy decision for me.

I find the lower divisions lack killers and fight to win on points more often, and that could be a downfall for some of them, thus meaning more title changes.

I'm picking Jones because he's too dominant, he's huge, his reach is unreal and he's growing better and better each fight... He's been in danger once, and that was for 20 seconds from Vitors armbar attempt, and since that, he destroyed him.

JDS

This was tough to pick against Jones but like fullerene said if JDS gets past Cain and The Reem, I just don't see him losing with the lack of competition in the future. The HW division only has 28 fighters on their roster.

I wanted to say GSP but WW has a lot of competition w/Condit, Hendricks, Kampmann, Diaz, Ellenberger, etc. and that'll be a tough run for any WW.

I went with Anderson because I think he has a good chance to vacate which technically would mean he'd never have lost the title.

This was 100% my line of thinking as well. I see Jones and Aldo potentially vacating within the next 2 years. Jones because the division will be empty and Aldo because his kidneys won't allow the cut anymore. Silva is getting up there in age, Bendo has some serious competition and I don't think he is as far ahead of his competition as the other champs. MM could lose on any given day, as the difference between the top 4 in that division is minimal. Cruz would have been a good choice, but with Barao and his kicking along with an acl injury for Cruz, he may not win his next fight. GSP would be my second pick.
