- Aldo or G-Sot as LW champ
- LHW will be Wonderful/Bones running it
- HW will have Cain or JDS on top
- MW is anyones guess
- WW will probably still be run by the only man imaginable, GSP

In 3 years i think there will be a UFC event 2-3 times a month and the fighters will be much more well rounded with not many people holding the belt for a lot of title defenses. The only exception i think will be Jon Jones. I think he will hold the belt for a while. Anderson Silva will be retired and so will BJ Penn.

I believe there will be a few more crossovers from boxing into MMA. At the end of the day, its all about money. UFC will have grown a little more in terms of revenue and stature but not by a substantial amount. I also believe there will be more fighters from the UK and Europe making it big. I really hope UFC doesn't buy out Strikeforce. A monopoly of the MMA world is not what we want to see.

I think Jones will be dominant at LHW and GSP at MW. I'd like to have seen a champ from Europe by that stage too, not too sure who it'd be though.

HW - Cain will be on top, but would have lost once either to JDS or a freak punch by Carwin.

LHW - JBJ will be on top, though will have lost once to Machida.

MW - Anderson will be on the slide, UFC will have bought Jacare in and he will be on top.

WW - GSP still ruling the roost.

LW - Frankie Edgar will have established himself as a big name and will be champ.

FW - Aldo will still be champ here in a division with a lot more talent showing up.

BW - no idea.

LW- oliviera and soti dominating the division and having great fights and trading the title with eachother

WW-GSP still the king

MW- very hard with jacare,lombardjoining and sonnen and the others up there with silva

lhw- Shogun champion but feijou is signed and challenges for the title

Hw- cain,lesnar,jds up there but that cuban wrestling champ is up there too and schaub and struve make their way into the top 10

Dana continues to coke, whore and pimp out his fighters to a blood thirsty audience.

I see the UFC remaining a highly profitable sideshow which never quite reaches mainstream legitimacy; it is built on an ethical and financial quicksand.
I really wonder how Dana White is still alive. He's always on the road 365 and personally running every show. He also claims to sleep about 2-3 hours a day and spends nights gambling. He must be on something fierce to keep him running.
