I don't even think Crocop will get a shot at the belt this year.

its stupid to say that anyone but Sera or Hughes will have the WW title since they're fighting in november and the layoff to the next title shot will be into the next year

My guess is he'll get a title shot in December.

Nice. One of the few "zombie threads" I approve of. It's interesting to see people's picks, 5 months later.

HW: Fedor isn't a UFC fighter - yet - so I'm not going to pick him. Meanwhile, I can't believe no one's picked Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira. Shame on you people. I think he'll run over Herring and then get a title shot (because Arlovski's title shot has been taken away); and I think he can take either Couture or Gonzaga. I don't think Cro Cop will get back into title contention before the end of the year.

LHW: Dan Henderson is legit, no question, but I'm still going to pick Rampage Jackson. He could have another title defense before the end of the year - in a New Year's Eve show, maybe? - but I don't know who it would be. Maybe Liddell again. Maybe Tito. I think only those three guys can give him a fight right now. Rashad can beat Tito, but I think he'd get beat up by Rampage.

MW: I haven't completely made up my mind, but I'm leaning towards Anderson Silva defending his belt against Marquardt and Franklin.

WW: The poster up the page is entirely correct - it has to be one of the Matts, simply due to logistics. I'll be pulling for Serra to win, but I think Matt Hughes will regain the hardware in time for the holidays.

LW: I don't see anyone beating B.J. Penn this year, and maybe not next year, either (yes, I think he's that good).

Bonus Pick - WEC FW: I'm already looking forward to Jens Pulver giving it a go, but I think Urijah Faber's wrestling will be too much for him.

Bonus Pick - TUF 6: Without knowing any of the other contestants, former KOTC champion Mac Danzig has to be a top contender, even at 170 lbs.

Y'know, the more I think about it, the less chance I think Tito would have against either Rampage or Hendo.

Heavyweight: Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira
Light Heavyweight: Dan Henderson
Middleweight: Rich Franklin
Welterweight: Matt Serra
Lightweight: Jens Pulver


I said Rich because i think that Nate Marquart will beat Silva and then Rich will beat Nate.

I said Matt Serra because the only title defense he will even do this year is Matt Hughes and i have a feeling that Serra is going to submitt Hughes.

I said Jens because it is rumoured that whoever wins between Jens Pulver and BJ Penn will get a title shot and i think that Pulver will knock out Penn and then after Hermes Franca beats Sean Sherk, Pulver will own Franca.

Henderson will beat Jackson via 5 round decision and if he fights Rua, Hendo will submitt Rua in the 3rd

I said Big Nog because he will walk right through Herring and then he will fight the winner of Couture and Gonzaga and i beleive ethier one of those fights is good for Big Nog so he will win

How do you pick for the end of the year if you have no idea who will be in the UFC by years end. Will they sign Fedor?

The easy pick is WW: Only one more title defense this year. Hughes as anoying as it is will defeat Serra, and end the year as Champ.

MW is the 2nd best pick. We know the next two title defenses. Anderson will defeat both Nate and Rich and be the champ comming in to '08.

LW I think will have the most entertaining end to '07. Sherk loses to Hermes. Then in what I think will take fight of the year BJ Penn will out last Franca in an all out war. BJ will be champ, but watch out for Melendez, Hansen, and Kawijiri.

LHW is kind of hard to predict. Rampage will storm past Dan, but who is next. Will it be a warm up match for Shogun the title chance or will Wandy vs Chuck happen and set up a NYE match between the winner of the former champs, and current champ Quinton. I love Rampage, but I have to say Rua takes his place as the top 205lb fighter in the sport, and will start his reign as best 205lb fighter ever.

HW is nearly impossible. Do they give AA a shot? god I hope not, but the common fan loves him. If Nog gets past Heath for the 3rd time does he get a shot? I think he deserves it, and is most likely, but if Fedor comes to the UFC all bets are off. I will say Randy defeats GG, and the UFC makes the dream fight happen on NYE. Fedor holds both belts by the end of the year.

HW: CroCop (Look at his performace after a loss, won the Open Weight GP)
LHW: Rampage (Henderson will make it a fight but he belongs at 185)
WW: St. Pierre (Will destroy Kosbitch and it doesn't matter who holds the title after Serra-Hughes, he's too good to not regain the belt)
LW: BJ Penn (If he decides to stay at 155) if not Sherk (Going to hold Franca down for five rounds next month)
