Atm I think Henderson/Edgar and Maynard will beat them all. The first time around at least. Each of them will give the top 10 fighters like Guida, Miller, Cerrone, Pettis a run for their money. I dunno. Like I said it's hard to say (for me at least). 155 is too talent stacked to make any 'for sure' calls imo.

What do you think?
My expectations is Hawn vs Chandler will be even better then Chandler vs Alvarez. Yeah, my expectations are that high. I love both men as fighters. Hawn has KO power in both hands and exceptional TDD with is Judo background. Chandler is a monster and won't go down easy to ANYONE and I mean ANYONE in the world at LW.
I personally think both men stand a terrific chance vs Maynard. Hawns only loss came at WW and it was a very close fight. At LW he is a scary, scary dude. Man I wish I could see if I'm correct about these guys. I'm pretty confident in them.

Ha, the thread title asks: "Which SF will be the 1st to get UFC gold?"

Anyways, I'd stick with Rousey as she is the first SF fighter in upcoming UFC title fights and has a vey high probability of winning.

Ok let's pretend the question says "Which SF fighter is most likely to defeat a UFC Champion for the title?"
What's your answer then?

Overeem. Cormier is my second choice but he's not going to fight Cain and I can't see him dropping down to 205 successfully.

I think none, but Cormier is biggest challenger to the belt by a mile.

I don't think any of those fighters will ever be a UFC champ...so that's what I voted! Cormier probably has the best chance but ill wait and see if he can even cut to 205 before I put any faith in him.

I guess I could have also voted other, because I think if anyone from SF is gonna be champ it will be Overeem.
