Which SF will be the 1st to get UFC gold?

Since my last poll was so successful and there hasn't been much news in MMA today. I figured why not?

Which SF fighter will be the 1st to get UFC Gold? I won't include Marquardt or Hendo as SF fighters.

I am not really sure any of them will. I think the UFC champs are just flat out better.

What about a young gun like Jordan Mein? Only 23 years old, full of potential. Not a believer in Cormier?

I'll go with Gilbert, he's always been the best Lightweight in Cesar's gym and Ben shouldn't have won either of those Edgar fights. Gil will drop him and smash him with GNP.

Jacare will probably win the Middleweight title if Anderson loses/retires/moves up

Cormier if he can successfully drop to 205... However, I voted other: Overeem.


Fedor, Mir, Lytle, Serra, Hendo, Chuck, Minowaman, Maynard, Forrest, Hunt
Pickett, Cerrone, Matt Brown, Bisping, Weidman, Barnett, Lawler

Cormier could, I'm just not sure how solid he will be at 205 and he won't be getting it at HW while Cain has it.

Overeem has a solid chance but I think Cain will wear him down.

DC can still win at HW because I don't think Cain will hold the strap.

I agree that Jacare has a chance to win MW gold as well. Even has a chance vs Spider IMO, not a big one though.

I still think Gil is a top 3 LW so that is also a very real possibility IMO.
