What Will Come From UFC: 125

The last few UFC events have brought forth some hot topics among the MMA community...

UFC 121: Lesnar vs. Velasquez
Lesnar has been exposed, Shields would get destroyed by GSP.

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.

Always rooting for: Bisping, Shogun, Jon Jones, Daley, Hardy, Sonnen, Fedor, Couture, Jacare.

Diaz will probably be the favorite, if I had to bet, I'd go with him I think his striking is better and he's probably got the better ju-jitsu, I think Stun-Gun could upset him though, he handled Amir pretty easy and I've always thought Nate was overrated much like his brother.

Always rooting for: Bisping, Shogun, Jon Jones, Daley, Hardy, Sonnen, Fedor, Couture, Jacare.

The odds for Diaz v Stun Gun are:
Diaz +105
Stun Gun -125

It's essentially been cap'd as a coinflip, so I'm not sure a "huge upset" is possible there.

Thiago Silva is the exact kind of opponent that will make Vera crumble. A cut is very possible.

UFC 125 will mark the beginning of the longest title reign in UFC history.

Maynard is going to hold onto that belt for a long time.

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

UFC 125 will signify Stun Guns launch into the welterweight title picture, the end of Veras career, and the establishment of who will be first to lose to Anthiny Pettis!

He's among the elite LWs, but he's not that good.

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...

I think we'll see massive cuts unless it's an epic PPV.

Stun Gun is a legit contender, Gomi is still relevant, and Frankie is top 3 P4P.
