Most to least likely IMO:

1 Demetrious Johnson - Dodson, Benavidez, and Uncle Creepy are about as good as he is. Could fight all of them in 2013.
2 Cain Velasquez - Fights with JDS and Overeem likely. HW is a crap shoot and the first guy to land a big punch almost always wins.
3 Jose Aldo - Edgar is a toss-up. Could just leave 145 to make room for teammate Hacran Dias.
4 Benson Henderson - Shear number of fights he takes could work against him. Maynard, Cerrone, and obviously Pettis are challenging enough match-ups.
5 Renan Barao - McDonald could beat him, Cruz probably would if they fight eventually.
6 Georges St. Pierre - Diaz is a lay-and-pray victory on paper, Hendricks is too sloppy, Maia doesn't have a chance in hell.
7 Anderson Silva - Nobody outside of Weidman has a shot. Long live the king!
8 Jon Jones - Just way better than everybody else.
9 Ronda Rousey - Cyborg might be able to beat her, but probably won't fight her.
10 Dominick Cruz - Probably won't be fighting anytime soon.... Don't think Barao would beat him anyway.

Ten belts... good lord.
