i think it will be tim sylvia depending on when cro cop gets a title shot, a lightweight title shot has been a long time coming though and i dont think sherk will have the belt too much longer. i think GSP is most secure with the belt at the moment but who knows? hughes might bring a better gameplan to the rematch or diego sanchez may prove to be the champ many doubt he is.

I'd agree it will be Tim Sylvia. With CC lurking around the corner, his title is definatly in danger. I actually do believe Sylvia has a shot at winning that fight, but I would definatly put my money on CC.

I would also have to put Silva as a potential loser in one of his upcoming fights. The odds would definatly be in his favor, but I believe Swick could pull off the upset with all the energy and confidence he'd bring into the fight.

So Sylvia would be my pick with Silva being a close second.

Dude, you start a lot of threads asking questions but never seem to offer your own opinion.


And in case nobody else has told you this yet, Wand/Hendo is only for the 205 lb belt. No way Wand is going to make 183 lbs.

As per the question, if Marquardt gets the next title shot then the answer is Anderson.

Gomi - Not too much competition in his class, and never fights for his title.
Henderson - Possible, but not probable, but also never fights fro his title.
Wandy - Lil Nog has a good chance, but that fights slow to happen
Fedor - Not for at least a few more years.

Sherk - Tough division, but won't be fighting for awhile because of his sholder.
GSP - Will have the belt for awhile I bet.
Silva - Depends on who hes up against next
Liddel - Only real concern is Rampage, and only if Rampage gets a few more fights before they throw him at Liddel.
Sylvia - Couture has a chance, Cro-cop has a much better chance.

It really depends on who fights who, but Sylvia and Silva will probably be the first to lose it, mostly because I don't think UFC wants them as champs anymore.

who is Gomi fighting for the title?

not diaz...



prolly Sylvia...if you keep fighting the same way every fight,they're gonna figure him out sooner or later

i dont see GSP losing a 5 round fight nor Sherk

either Sylvia or Silva...

Gomi will be protected until he retires. Otherwise I'd say him.
Now Anderson feels like the natural choice. Not because I'm disappointed or anything in his last performance, I just think Nate's got his number.

I'd have to go with Wandy...

Lil Nog & Arona are both gunning for him...

Also Shogun if they meet in a GP final.

That's some really tough competition.

Best point of the thread to me. Pride rarely has their champ's defend , so it will most likely be a UFC champ.Hendo could upset Wandy, but I make it 2 to 1 Wandy. I thionk LIL Nog would win , if they ever fought. I'll agree with Cro-cop taking Sylvia, unless The UFC bring's in Lindland. I think his style would frustrate Anderson.
