I don't see any of these fighters phasing out with the next 2 years, here's what I hope they decide to do:
Matt Hughes - He will lose a rematch to GSP then hopefully go down to a 3-5 spot on the WW ladder. Once he's here I want to see him fight at least 2 of the following people: Karo, Fitch, Koscheck, Diego.
Rich Franklin - I don't see him being able to beat Anderson Silva so I want him to fight through the MW ladder as well. Id like to see Franklin vs Marquardt, Swick, Okami, Machida, and a couple other guys.
Chuck Liddell - Chuck will beat Rampage and I don't see anyone in the UFC right now being able to defeat him, but Shogun/Arona/Wandy will **** his shit up. He will probably retire after defending his title 2-4 more times and losing at the Pride/UFC Superbowl.
Georges St Pierre -He will hold the WW title for a while. I want to see him and Diego, him and Koscheck, and him and Karo II. Would like to see him move up to MW also and Im curious to see what weight class he fights at vs Pride. Id like to see him at 185 vs Henderson/Filho
Anderson Silva - He's going to hold the MW title as well. I dont see Marquardt or Franklin beating him. Swick won't be able to handle him either. I want to see him vs Henderson/Filho
Tim Sylvia - Hopefully they keep Sylvia around and start paying him less to fight. Id like to see him fight CroCop still and Brandon Vera. Maybe throwing him against Mir / Herring would be cool too. Josh Barnett vs Sylvia would be awesome too
Anyways, I hope that just because some of these former champs lose their belts they keep fighting, well see though.
What a stud
