Votes are pretty spread out right now. That's a good thing I guess.

Cain, just based on the HW belt being the hardest to keep. Don't see any of the other champs going anywhere, especially after Edgar gets stopped by Aldo.

I disagree about Aldo, but that is going to be a tough fight so I wouldn't be surprised if you were right, but I do agree with Barao. I think the winner of Barao/Mayday will beat Cruz and would have beat him even if he never suffered his injuries.

1. Aldo - My vote goes to Aldo just because I think Edgar/Siver/Jung are likely the biggest/best/batch of title contenders right now.

2. Barao/Cruz/Macdonald - I can see some title flipping going on with these guys.

3. GSP - This maybe the scariest field of opponants yet for the great one. Demian Maia has turned into a force of nature, Diaz is a wild card, and Hendricks hits like a truck with some of the highest wrestling credentials GSP has ever seen. Also Padawan Rory and Broke Jon Fitch are turning into two very scary theories.

4. Johnson - I mean who the hell knows with these guys, you have to rewind the tape to figure out who won the fight anyways.

5. Benson Henderson - I feel like this year is an easy year for him I don't see Melendez and Pettis as much of a threat and that maybe all he faces. But next year with Alvarez, Sanchez, and perhaps Hallman makes me wonder if Benson might have a rough 2014.

6. Cain Velasquez - I don't know about his health and who he's going to face but he's a HW and theirs a reason Brock and Timeh have the UFC defense records...cause it's hard to do.

7. Silva - If he doesn't retire.

8. Rousey - She maybe a one trick pony but it's a damn good trick.

9. Jones - I give Chael three minutes, after that Henderson/Machida still a punchers chance against a guy who has great striking defense.

I think GSP could lose if he fights both Diaz and Hendricks, just by law of averages. Also if he fights Silva. I think Aldo is the weakest of the true champions which does not include Rousey or Johnson...so he gets a vote, in a strong division aswell.

Why is Johnson not considered a "true champion"?

He never beat a champ to win the belt, he needs some defenses for me.

He did beat the #1 Fly in the World at the time. IMO the Tachi Belt was as good as it got for Flys before UFC. So I consider the UFC Champ to be the legit champ.
The problem I run into is I personally felt McCall won the 1st fight vs Johnson. He clearly lost the rematch though. So beating Creepy on the way to the belt makes him legit in my book.
