    who do you think will be the next to take a championship? other than the LHW Championship since that's on the line in a few days/week :)dunno: the date)

    imo it will be Gonzaga taking the HW Title off Couture...i like both but i think Gonzaga has more going for him

    -Youth
    -Good Ground Work
    -Strong Striker (still don't believe Cro Cop got KTFO by him)


    how about you?

    i still believe if crocop sticks around he will be the champ

    i also think rampage has a shot, after all year of upsets

    I don't know what to expect anymore.. these last couple months have shown me anything is possible and never, ever underestimate the underdog.

    Other than Rampage having a very good chance against Liddell, I don't think any of the other titles are going to change hands soon. I think Sherk beats Hermes, Anderson beats Nate, and Randy figures out a way to beat Gonzaga. There is an entire season of TUF before Serra faces off with Hughes, and IMHO, if he comes in with the same aggression he did in the GSP fight, Serra has a very good shot at winning!

    I think Gongaza has a real good chance, as much as i love Randy, he can;t analyze Gongaza's style like he analyzed Tim's. He has to have a serious gameplan, but without Gongaza having one set style i think its goign to be hard to set one up.

    Gonzaga is exactly the type of guy Randy has trouble with, Gonzaga takes belt and Mirko takes it from him in a rematch. Hughes beats serra,GSP beats hughes again in a rematch. Penn beats Pulver and then Sherk to win LW title. I dont see chuck or A.Silva losing this year.

    Mirko will never have the ufc belt, he will be given 2 fights. Leaving him with 2 fights left on his contract, If he really is going to retire dana will not let him fight for the title.

    I dunno how much more motivation crocop has left...sad as it is, I don't think he will be taking the belt.

    I think Rampage is gonna beat Chuck, Randy will grind out a tough victory over Gonzaga, Sherk will crush Hermes, Nate the Great beats the Spider, and as much as I hate him, Hughes pounds Serra.

    I don't see Cro Cop ever getting the belt at this point.

    I just wanna see Randy vs. Fedor in the "MMA Superbowl".

    I think Gonzaga will beat Randy, Rampage will beat Chuck, Silva will beat Nate, gonna go way out on a limb and call a decision win by Serra, and well, I dont see anyone at lightweight that will beat Sherk as of right now

    Hughes will most likely beat Serra and go on to stomp GSP. Penn will beat Pulver but I'm not so sure that he'll beat Sherk. I hope that Randy beats Gonzaga but I wouldn't put money on it. I really want to see Rampage take it from Chuck.

    The way Gonzaga trains is very impressive. He has all the tools of a true MMA fighter. I think he's going to beat Randy and will stay champion until Fedor comes which is probably never.

    Hughes will beat a currently overrated Serra.

    Gonzaga will beat Couture for the HW title.

    Gonzaga will have a couple of title defenses before losing it.

    Liddell beats Rampage inside of 2 rounds

    Hughes beats Serra via submission or G&P within 4 then beats GSP in rematch within 3

    Couture beats Gonzaga and faces either Cro-Cop, Silvia or Vera

    I think Pulver will beat Penn when and if they meet

    I think that Couture is the only hw in the UFC right now that stands a chance against Gonzaga. If Gonzaga beats him then he's going to hold the title for a while. I'm not betting against Couture on that one, though.
