Who do you want to be UFC Champion at the end of 2013?

Try to keep it semi reasonable if you can. But for each weight class what guys do want holding the titles at the end of this year?

Fly- Creepy. He will probably have to beat Joe convincingly to get a chance at a shot this year.

BW- Mayday. Nothing against Barao but I prefer Mayday. F*ck Cruz.

FW-Aldo- I'd like to see things play out a bit more at LW before he makes the jump. I'm cool with Zombie here as well.

LW- Out of the most likely guys to hold it Bendo,Gil, Pettis, maybe EA or Maynard. I'll take Pettis.

WW- Nick Diaz. But Hendricks would be fine as well.

MW- Weidman. I'd also be cool with Vitor. But hell no to Spider or Evans.

LHW- Hendo. Would be sweet to see him get that belt. I'd settle for Mousasi or Glover.

HW- JDS. Still think he is the best. If not then I prefer Cain just keep it. But if I really stretch it then Mark Hunt would be my #2. DC would be cool too. Just no Reem, Barnett or Mir.

Flyweight: I'm fine with Mighty Mouse staying as champion. Really good athlete who puts on solid fights.

Bantamweight: Don't have any preference here. No particular favourite in this division. I like Alex Caceres but he ain't anywhere near a title shot.

Featherweight: Erm...I say Edgar. I really really like Edgar and he puts on exciting fights the majority of the time. Excellent athlete as well. Thing is I would have to see him beat Aldo for the belt.

Lightweight: Aldo. Hopefully Aldo moves up after the Edgar fight no matter the outcome and claims the lightweight title. I like Bendo as a fighter and for the most part his attitude. Don't really like how he mentions his religion in near ever single interview though. Prefer Aldo as champ. Otherwise, Pettis. Excellent striker and a would be a great exciting champion.

Welterweight: I like Fitch but GSP is just a much better fighter. GSP is a great ambassador for the sport as well so I'm happy he is champ.

Middleweight: I don't really know. I want Andy to drop the title and just go for superfights. We all know he is the best middleweight already. I just want him to put a definitive statement that he is the absolute greatest of all time. If he does drop the title, then Weidman please. I don't see anybody else in the division beating Weidman sans Lombard, who could give him a very good challenge).

Light heavyweight: Hopefully Jones continues his run towards being the greatest light heavyweight of all time. I don't see anybody else in the division being a threat to him. If Jones moves up to heavyweight end-2013 then MACHIDA please take back the title. Glover is a good candidate as well. Like that guy.

Heavyweight: JDS. Just because I want to see that JDS-Overeem fight...

Anderson Silva
Aldo - Dos Anjos - Mayday - Weidman - Machida - Jones

LOL well most of those qualify as "semi-reasonable". Who is your favorite BW and LW that could have a crack at the title this year? Nate lost handily so that is stretching a bit too far IMO. Stretching it would be Alvarez or Maynard IMO but Nate is just going a bit too far IMO. But I would be very happy if Nate was Champion.
