2009 Champion Predictions

Okay everyone. Here's something for a little fun, if it hasn't been done already, if so my bad. A little into 09 here we've got a decent idea of who is going to be getting title shots and when and where.

So for fun, make your predictions now. On December 31st (after the big year end event and everything leading up to it) who will be the title holders in each division.

Make one post with your predictions, and try to keep the debate and argument to a minimum, it's just for fun. I'll bring this thread up at the end of the year and see where everyone landed.

EDIT: I'll keep everyones predictions on file and at the end of the year rank how everyone did. Any predictions made after 02/20 (The day before UFC 95) Will not be counted.
****If a moderator is bored and wants to close the thread for me on the 02/21 that would rock. Have fun and good luck.

I'll start things off:

HW: Brock Lesnar
LHW: Machida
MW: Anderson Silva
WW: Thiago Alves (long shot I know)
LW: Deigo Sanchez


This is an update done on 08/27/09
Well, there is still a lot of time left for things to change, but I thought I'd update everyone that was a part of this 6 months ago to where we are now. If nothing else it should make for interesting conversation. I've only listed people that are at least 4 out of 5 correct at this point, since just about everyone is at least 3 out of 5, myself included!

So here you go:

lpbigd444 - 5 out of 5 to date, the one and only to go 100% so far.

Dragonstriker
Where'sthecrow?
Suizida
Suvaco
BabyJ.D.
rdrush
runner2
cplmac
Shamrock-Oritz
The Ultimate
...all went 4 for 5

So that's where we are for now. I'll update at the end of the year again, as promised.
