New Champions
 
It seems like the champions of the past are being replaced by new, young talented fighters. It started when Anderson Silva KO(d) Rich Franklin... now GSP KO(s) Matt Hughes.. Will Chuck Liddell fall against Tito Ortiz? Will Brandon Vera or AA take the belt of Tim S? your thoughts...

Well if Chuck loses the belt to Tito he wont have lost it to a new young fighter. After all Tito has more expierance with the belt than Chuck. I do think Vera will take the belt from Tim which would follow the new trend of champs falling to younger guys.

I think you are seeing a changing of the guard ... I don't think Tito will beat Liddell but Brandon Vera may very well beat Sylvia, maybe Aleksander will soon if he comes 'round

Anything can happen when 2 fighters step into the octogon, of course titles will change hands.

Tito is a champ of the past. and Franklin and Sylvia are not the old gaurd. Anderson is not a newcomer either.

The Old school fighters to me are Royce, Severn, Kimo, Shamrock, Oleg Tactaric(spelling), Frank Shamrock, Tank Abbott, Jeremy Horn, even Chuck and Tito have been around a long time.

Yeah Tito Ortiz isn't really what I would consider "New". Anyway,if Chuck beats Tito at 66, I see Chuck Liddell retiring with the Championship

Yeah unless he gives away the belt to go up to HW and try and take that one because Vera might have it and he wont be giving up much weight and he will have run out of competition in the LHW divsion.

Someone else has to take the title from Tim before AA gets it back.

I find it much more entertaining when champs don't hold the belt more than a year, two or three defenses, just to prove they were worthy in the first place.

Chuck won't lose to Tito, and I bet Vera will take the belt from Tim, not AA.
