LW STEVENSON

I like Bj a lot but i think he will take joe lightly.



There would be no reason for BJ to take Joe Stevenson lightly. Joe is one of the best in the division.

HW- Gabriel Gonzaga
LHW- Forrest Griffin
MW- Kendall Grove
WW- Mike Swick
LW- Roger Huerta



If your right on 2 of those come to Canada I owe you a beer. lol

That seems so far away, but then again, end of 2007 seemed so far away this time last year, heck by this time next year we'll probably even know who our next US President will be. Anyways, I'll go on the record and say by the end of 2008:

HW belt will be held by Cro Cop
LHW belt will be held by Wanderlei Silva
MW belt will still be held by Anderson Silva
WW belt will be held by Georges St Pierre
LW belt will be held by Roger Huerta

Backups (In case one of the above retires or moves up or down a division):

HW belt will be held by Sylvia (if Cro Cop retires)
LHW belt will be held by ShoGun Rua (if Wanderlei retires)
MW belt will still be held by Dan Henderson (if he moves down to MW)
WW belt will be held by Georges St Pierre (dont see him retiring or changing weight)
LW belt will be held by Roger Huerta (him neither)

2007 is nearing its finish, and we only have a few major events left to bring to a close what has been arguably the most unpredictable year in all of MMA history. I know it's a little early, but get on record here with your predictions as to who will hold the UFC belts in each division at the end of next year.

Here's my guesses: At the end of 2008 I think that the...

HW belt will be held by Big Nog
LHW belt will be held by Shogun
MW belt will still be held by A. Silva
WW belt will be held by GSP
LW belt will be held by Sherk

Granted, there's so much that could change in that time in terms of other top-tier talent coming in to the UFC, more upsets, etc, but hey this is fun...

In the unlikely event Lindland made his way back to the UFC I think he would have a good chance to take out Spider Silva, as would Filho if he left WEC to move up to UFC for some reason, but both of those aren't likely. For Shogun to win the belt he has to win 2 fights in a row convincingly, then fight for the belt. I think 14 months is enough time for that to happen. GSP doesn't need an explanation, let's just hope he stays with his sports shrink and keeps his head on straight and he'll be A-OK for a long time I think BJ will beat Joe Daddy for the belt at LW, then Sherk will wind up getting the belt back before the end of '08, whether it be due to BJ moving on to something else, going up to WW, or gassing vs Sherk. Big Nog at HW, w00w00!

What are your guesses?








SHERK!!! how can you say he should or will have the belt, why do people like this guy hes a dam cheater, more like the scum of mma rather than a belt holder. besides who wants to see lay and pray on roids, boring....theres a reason everyone boos him live, hes no champion and will be exposed even if the ufc are a bunch of cowards and let him off the hook, dont make me puke my guts out, what kind of example is this, your terrible people for thinking he should remain champ, theres no way he beats the level of competition in the lightweight devision, his days are over like hughes'

HW- Big Nog

LHW- Rampage(No way he loses, Juanito is a great trainer and he is too well rounded and Bad ass)

MW- Anderson Silva(There are no MW's really left that Anderson or Rich have not beat, so basically if Rich don't win we will have a dead MW division probably)

WW- Jon Fitch(Hughes Destroys Serra, GSP destroys Hughes, GSP gets overconfident again and Fitch stops him even more devastating then Serra)

LW- BJ Penn(too dominant at 155)






i can see a few of these however

i dont agree with nog, hes donebar i just dont see it, i really dont agree with your prediction on the hughes/serra fight serra will clean that farmboys attitude problem with a ko worse than GSP's, and Wanderlei will dominate rampage like he did before, but if wandy loses to chuck we wont see that, shogun is most definatly better than page, if you dont agree just watch the fight, and if he dosnt fight those two machida will dominate page worse than shogun and both of wandys beatings combined.

i like your prediction on fitch tho, GSP vs Fitch is definatly the cream of the crop in the welterweight devision, hughes cannot beat anyone in the top 5 in the ufc, which is GSP, Fitch, Kos, Karo, Serra, would all beat him easily, he is no good at standup and cannot compete with what is to come, dana needs to stop giving hughes gimmes like being a coach after only beating one person by decision then all of the sudden hes the bomb again, whatever, boring fighters dont make it far

WW: Fitch vs GSP....GSP
LW: Penn


For Heavyweight and Welterweight I put the matchups I think should happen because those are the two people I had the most trouble deciding as to who would have the title in that division...I think those would be marquee matchups.

And I also think Thiago is going to be a huge threat to A. Silva in Middleweight.
