Damn, tough question! Edgar has a good chance against Aldo... Barao has a good chance against Cruz... I took Henderson though, because my boy Nate is taking that strap come next month!!! (I hope anyway )

Cruz Benson and JDS...

But mostly Cruz, he's losing that title post surgery.

I know, man. It took me a good five minutes to decide between Valesquez, Diaz, Barao, and Edgar. I don't give Sonnen a chance, of course.

Yeah, there's a very good chance Barao will walk away with the title.

This

Diaz is taking that belt.

I think Barao is going to as well though.

I picked Bendo, but Aldo is like 1b. JDS would come in a close 3rd.

Condit really isnt a threat unless it stays standing all fight. Cruz can butterfly around the octagon, and Barao showed a very tentative gameplan last fight. Sonnen, while I hope he does win, has a very slim chance to do so. If Anderson was on this list and Weidman was the next challenger, then I would move him to #3

.. Barao has a good chance against Cruz...


Damn I should have read this before voting. That is a fantastic point, but in my defense the fight isn't scheduled yet. Perhaps that's why Silva vs WeidmanBoetsch isn't on the list either. Bendo didn't win decisively enough against Edgar in either fight which puts him at the disadvantage in my eyes, as GSP, Aldo, Jones, and JDS have all manhandled there last few fights.

I didn't add Silva vs. Weidman/Boetch because Silva has no clear opponent and there's still a chance Silva could face GSP next if GSP makes it past Condit. Barao on the other hand just had a title eliminator with Faber.

Weidman aint laying and prayin anyone with a full camp...Hes gonna sub Silva..

JDS has a tough out
Aldo has a tough out....I think Aldo loses rounds 3 4 5 for sure..IMO as hard as Frankie got hit by Maynard in the second fight....Aldo cant hit that hard and will gas...I think he gets taken down in first or second too..


im ready for GSP and see how he looks after the layoff but most times after surgery these days limbs are even stronger in some cases

He's not subbing Silva ever. He wont be able to pass that guard all night.

A gassed and out of shape Lutter mounted Silva...I'm sure Weidman is able to make it to half guard
