I think the winner of Diaz/Stun Gun takes a big step forth as a legitimate contender in the WW division.

Clay Guida finally gets the big win his career is lacking and with it the respect he deserves.

A possible big upset in the Leben/Stann fight I think is very possible.

Frankie Edgar establishes himself as a true champion and puts the LW division on notice.

I think he'll beat up Pettis (w/ B-Hendo out) for unification. I think Dunham, Edgar, Penn, Gulliard all would be too close to call.

Dunham in particular, over 5 rounds, horrible match-up for him.

JBJ on the other hand...
Good point on Dunham. That would probably be a close fight, not sure who I would choose. I see him beating the other 3 though, especially Guilliard.

Will make predictions for credits. Please, I'm so broke.

UFC 122: Marquardt vs. Okami
Okami recieves a title shot, Greg Jackson fighters turning "boring."

UFC 123: Rampage vs. Machida
Lyoto Machida has been solved/Rampage vs. Machida Controversy, Gerald Harris cut from the UFC, Phil Davis and G-Sot arrive as contenders, BJ Penn is "back"

UFC 124: St-Pierre vs. Koscheck 2
GSP displays technical brilliance, Olivera loses, Alves is "back".

So what do you guys think will come from 125?

Maynard victory = possible BJ return to 155?
Gomi is "back"?
Brandon Vera is cut from the UFC.
Upset KO?

Personally, I'm thinking huge upset between Stun-Gun/Diaz.
In order for Gomi to come back, he'd have to be gone. As I recall his last fight was one hell of a Ko win over a very good opponent, Tyson Griffin.

But yeah, I getcha. I think we'll see Vera possibly be cut, because I don't see him beating Silva. I think we'll see Guida get a big important win. I don't really care for Maynard or Edgar, but I think I'd like to see Edgar keep his title. Maynard's style bores me, and I'd hate to see him get the belt.

Why dont people see Vera beating silva?! Vera is the much more technical and quicker striker. Silva is slow as hell.

A.
Maynard wins but still doesn't get any respect and is still not that good. Pettis will win
Frankie Edgar sucks an just got "lucky" against an "under-motivated" BJ Penn. would get destroyed by Pettis


Leban wins and deserves top ten opponent.
brian stann is brian stann.


Thiago wins and vera gets cut.

Stun gun rightfully gets thrown into title contention.
Nate Diaz is overrated


The fireball kid is back.
Guida sucks and is overrated


B.
Edgar wins but still doesn't get any respect and is still not that good. Pettis will win
Maynard sucks and would get destroyed by Pettis.

Leban sucks because Brian Stann is Brian Stann.

Vera wins and Thiago is overrated.

Diaz wins and stun gunn is overrated.

Guida wins and gomi sucks and got lucky against griffin, he should be cut.

Combination

Edgar wins and hopefully gets the respect he deserves because he is that good. Will end the Pettis hype (even though I think the kid is legit)

Leben wins and deserves top ten opponent.
brian stann is brian stann.

Vera wins and Thiago is overrated.

Stun gun rightfully gets thrown into title contention.
Nate Diaz is overrated

The fireball kid never left

At least this is how I want it to go.

EDIT: Let me explain my Pettis reasoning before I get flamed. I think he's legit in that he has the skills, tools and mindset to better his game. He has what it takes now to be top 10 even 5 in the UFC LW division but he is very young and has a lot of growth in his future (that is scary). The hype I speak of is the kick off the cage. While that was amazing, it doesn't make him to be a world beater in the LW division. It shows his creativity and agility, nothing more.
