Benson will lose his title to Gray Maynard but I think Frankie has a decent chance at dethroning Aldo.

I went for Cain but only because I forgot Aldo/Edgar was happening.

43 votes, man that's great. Successful thread! Thanks everyone for participating.
Mouse pulled away little bit but the votes are still pretty well spread out. A few of the Champions are facing some interesting challenges this year. SF imports seem to a big threat this year with Reem, Diaz, DC and Melendez.

Everyone thought the least likely champion to loose his belt at that time was BJ Penn.

I also think he was the first out of the list!


Big Thanks to KryOnicle for the sig!

Sweet. Thanks for posting the old poll. Interesting to look back at stuff like that. This is the kind of thread you can make every year. Just shows how much things have changed.

Sure, if he wins well i will consider him the champ. Thing about him and Rhonda is that i dont see either losing any time soon due to the weakness of there divisions.

I agree much more with Ronda then I do Mouse. Just like many others mentioned here I think the top of the Flys are all pretty equal. I would actually be very shocked if Mouse is able to hold this belt very long. I expect him to beat Dodson but after that I'll be increasingly impressed by each time he can defend his title.

From that list it went-

1. BJ Penn lost at UFC 112
2. Machida(should be 1 after 104) lost at UFC 113
3. Brock Lesnar lost at UFC 121

GSP and Anderson have yet to lose their belts. Though it's funny how many people thought Penn was untouchable and how many people thought Anderson was going to get beat by Sonnen, came damn close.

Think. It Ain't Illegal Yet

BJ looked untouchable at 155 before the Edgar fights, me and my friends knew he was fighting at 112 but we didn't know who Edgar was at the time and we were all sure BJ was gonna kill him.

There is still a good chunk of people that saw that 1st Frankie fight, myself included, that felt BJ Penn was robbed. He clearly lost the rematch but the 1st fight was extremely controversial.
