Liddell has the best chance of doing this since he's getting up there in age.

Franklin/Hughes/Sylvia/Liddell all have really tough fights ahead that put them in great danger of it all being over (not that they can't win it back later tho)

Personally, I don't think retiring with a belt is all that cool. Just keep fighting and let the up and comers earn the belt from the veterans. That's just me tho

I'd say Sherk when he beats the living hell out of Kenflo. I don't see anyone that can beat him in 155 division.

What is it that is going to be on your mind when you're on your death bed? Will it be the tedious years of 9 to 5, or the memory of some great acheivement. Maybe a moment you stood in glory to the applause of millions.

If he can beat BJ Penn and St.Pierre, I think Matt Hughes will hold onto it until he retires!

Hughes will lose his belt to BJ. I got to see BJ train a little while ago and he wants it bad. Hughes is done.

I think Franklin will have the hardest fight of his carreer against Anderson Silva. He may win, but I think he'll lose it eventually.

Sylvia will lose it to Monson.

Chuck has the best chance, but it really depends on when he chooses to retire.

What about Lance Armstrong? He could have won it for another two if he wanted too (or didn't caught for blood doping)
