Cormier has a chance at HW and...maybe at LHW, although I like his chances at HW better. Overeem could also win it at HW and he's from SF. Josh Barnett is another HW from SF with good potential. Other than that, SF's other divisions were pretty weak. Nick Diaz and Dan Henderson are about it when it comes to star power coming from SF, but their chances of taking gold are slim. SF only had great HW's, I'd say SF had a much better HW division than the UFC.

What's your answer then?
I think Overeem might have a shot if he can take advantage of the first two rounds as I've explained here. Else I don't really see a SF fighter defeating a UFC Champion. I don't know why, but somehow I'm not yet really sold on Cormier even though his performance, in particular against Barnett, should impress me, there is obviously something in him which I don't see what others do see.

Couple of things...what about Tate, or Cyborg in the WMMA, or Rousey division as DW calls it, division? Guida has dropped down to 145 lbs so any talk of him at 155 doesn't matter.

Now as for the OP I think Gil has the best shot. Barnett is not a solid go for the UFC DW hates his guts.

I didn't include women fighters because there were no women UFC fighters before the buyout for the SF women to come in and take the belt from. The belt came over with the SF division. It's a unique situation. The question is really asking if anyone thinks a SF fighter is able to come in and take the belt from a UFC Champion.
