Let's see, three years from now:

The UFC will have created a 125-lb. class by then, and John Dodson will be its champion.

Jon Jones-Phil Davis 3 should be just around the corner (Jones and Davis having split the first two).

And Rashad will be spinning-back-fisting opponents at his by-then home of 170 (after a stint at 185 that included a brutal pwnage of Chael Sonnen, then a devastating KO loss to Anderson Silva).

stop scoring take downs, institute yellow cards, faster stand ups and no bonus pay without a finish.

...it'd stop that shit quick

edit: also.. using the fence is no longer against the rules... this including grabbing it etc.

Rob Emerson comes back to the UFC after the UFC begs him enough, he then clears out each division and defends all the titles on each PPV all on the same night. He does this until he gets bored and "retires".

Once he "retires", it'll eventually work itself out to look like this:

1. A HW that isn't at the top yet and we don't know much about is the HW champion
2. Jon Jones is the LHW champion
3. Sonnen or Okami is the MW champion
4. Fitch is the WW champion (Penn will beat fitch, but Penn won't be the WW champ 3 years from now).
5. A LW we aren't aware of/don't know yet is the champ.

Randy is still shocking everybody, and i think if chuck is actually going to use his wrestling this comeback could work this time.

special thanks to
Matt Hughes
Rashad Evans
Shane Carwin
Anderson Silva
and of course Gray Maynard

NPFFL: JDS, Bisping, Rampage, Kampmann

-Cain will still be the champion, but he won't have an 'invincible' image after extemely hard fought wins over JDS and Carwin. (I see Cain beating JDS 48-47, and subbing Carwin in round three after taking a beating in rounds 1 and 2). Brock has evolved and learned to take a punch, and has improved his record to 8-2 with three straight wins over Roy Nelson, Brendan Schaub, and Frank Mir. However, Lesnar is getting older and still doesn't have the skillset to compete with Cain, JDS and crew.
-Phil Davis becomes the new LHW Champion in early 2013. Jon Jones has been exposed, and has lost 2 of his last 3 fights to Rampage and Machida. Rampage is musing retirement, but has been up and down lately with a brutal loss to a returning Shogun and a win over Lil' Nog. Machida has been on a tear as well with victories over Bader, Jones and Forrest Griffin. Bader has also been exposed, after losing decisively to Jon Jones, he takes a controversial decision over Matt Hammill, and a one-sided loss to Machida.
-After losing to Belfort, Anderson loses a rubber match to Chael, and then retires. Okami defeats Belfort for the title after wearing him down for 5 rounds. Maquiel Falcao has emerged as a top contender after destroying Mark Munoz, Tom Lawlor, and Nate Marquardt. Marquardt is no longer a top-10 fighter with three straight losses in a row to Aaron Simpson, a rematch with Rousimar Palhares, and Falcao. Michael bisping has been up and down, continuing to dominate mid-tier middleweights while losing badly to Chael in a title eliminator.
-GSP is still the WW champion, having defeated Koscheck, Shields, Fitch, and Condit, who decides to fight GSP despite being his teamate. GSP's next challenge is Ben Askren. Fitch beats Shields and Penn both while remaining the number 2 as he has for a long time. Josh Koscheck has defeated Dan Hardy, and Paulo Thiago, but has surprisingly lost a rematch with Chris Lytle.
-Frankie Edgar is still the LW Champion, having defeated Maynard, Pettis, as well as Sotiropolous, Dunham, and Aldo. Despite these constant victories, the Answer continues to remain a heavy underdog in each of his fights. Sotiropolous and Dunham are now the consensus number 2 and 3. Kenny Florian loses one-sidedly to Aldo in the latter's LW debut and is now classified as overrated. Takanori Gomi is still surprisingly relevant with wins over Benderson, Guida, Stevenson, and a Tyson Griffin rematch. Nik Lentz is now the most hated fighter in the UFC and has taken a hostile attitude towards the fans because of it.
-Featherweight is still dominated by Aldo, who looks slightly mortal after his shocking loss to Edgar. He continues to throttle any up and coming featherweight.
-Urijah Faber defeats Scott Jorgenson for the BW title and has kept it since with victories over Torres, Bowles, Cruz, Pickett, etc. Faber has returned to his glory days, but his age is now catching up with him and he isn't as fast as he used to be.

HW - Georges St Pierre shocks the world by moving up to HW and defeating Kole Conrad in a 9 round battle when all the judges scored for GSP....except for Cecil Peoples who scored the fight 90-81 for GSP.

LHW - Bader/Jones/Davis continue swapping belts the same way the Kardashians swap athletes.

MW - Roy Nelson shocks the world by going on a clense diet and knocks out Anderson Silva to become the New Middleweight Champion in the world. When asked for comment he responds "Can I has Cheezburger".

WW - Christina Cyborg becomes the first inter-gender champion by defeating Jon Fitch....Josh Koscheck still the biggest bitch in the WW division.

LW - Jose Aldo has cleaned out the division and forced everyone to move down FW and BW, subsequently no one has competed in the LW division in a year.
