2013 Prediction Contest Thread.
Each person gets 5 predictions, top 3 predictions that come true. (bizarre or unforeseen). Will earn the predictor 1000000 credits. Remember if two people make the exact same prediction who ever made it first wins, by making the prediction more specific though you can steal the win. Example if Person #1 predicts Anderson Silva will lose and person #2 predicts he will lose to Chael Sonnen then obviously if he were to lose to Sonnen #2 would get the points. Predictions will be accepted for one week starting now.
My Predictions for 2013.
1. After dropping 2 fights in 2013 Jose Aldo is no longer in P4P discussions.
2. GSP destroys Nick Diaz stopping him in under 3 rounds.
3. UFC buys Invicta
4. Dominick Cruz does not compete in single bout in 2013.
5. Sonnen/Jones will do over 1 million PPV buys
1. Chris Weidman fights Anderson Silva and gets smashed in under 3.
2. Jose Aldo moves up to LW and fights Ben Henderson for the title.
3. Cain Velasquez loses the HW title.
4. Chael Sonnen beats Jon Jones for the LHW title (I know, I know :D).
5. Big Nog or Werdum gets injured before the TUF finale.
1. Frankie Edgar becomes the FW Champion after dominating Aldo.
2. Ronda Rousey loses.
3. Condit stops Rory again
4. BJ Penn goes back to 155
5. GSP stops Diaz

2. Gilbert Melendez will fight for the LW title in his UFC debut and come up short.
3. The flyweight, featherweight, lightweight, welterweight, middleweight and light heavyweight belts will NOT change hands. (Risky!)
4. Jose Aldo will NOT move up to LW.

5. Hioki gets a FW title shot and submits the champion
I know I said I was going to predict something less crazy in the other thread but that's boring so...
1. Jose Aldo beats Frankie at FW, moves up and beats the LW champ.
2. Pettis will land a knockout with a kick we rarely see in MMA
3. Frankie Edgar becomes interim champ at 135
4. Ronda goes unbeaten in the UFC until she faces Cyborg
5. At least twelve ZUFFA fighters get busted for illegal substances due to increased/VADA testing (wishful thinking here)
1. Frankie Edgar defeats Jose Aldo by split decision on February 2nd after a late surge where he gets dropped and nearly finished in the first two rounds to grind out two 10-9's in the third and fourth rounds before dropping Aldo in the fifth to take a split decision that gets FOTN and FOTY honors and splits the MMA world 50/50. Aldo and Edgar later rematch in the summer in Brazil.
2. Wanderlei Silva, Frank Mir, Rich Franklin, Nick Diaz, Rampage Jackson, Chael Sonnen, and Minotauro Nogueira retire.
3. Lyoto Machida defeats both Dan Henderson and Mauricio 'Shogun' Rua.
4. Jake Ellenberger defeats Johny Hendricks.
5. Daniel Cormier, Luke Rockhold, Nate Marquardt, and Gilbert Melendez all fight for a UFC Title in 2013.
