Liddell has the best chance of doing this since he's getting up there in age.

Franklin/Hughes/Sylvia/Liddell all have really tough fights ahead that put them in great danger of it all being over (not that they can't win it back later tho)

Personally, I don't think retiring with a belt is all that cool. Just keep fighting and let the up and comers earn the belt from the veterans. That's just me tho :dunno:

I'd say Sherk when he beats the living hell out of Kenflo. I don't see anyone that can beat him in 155 division.

If he can beat BJ Penn and St.Pierre, I think Matt Hughes will hold onto it until he retires!

Hughes will lose his belt to BJ. I got to see BJ train a little while ago and he wants it bad. Hughes is done.

I think Franklin will have the hardest fight of his carreer against Anderson Silva. He may win, but I think he'll lose it eventually.

Sylvia will lose it to Monson.

Chuck has the best chance, but it really depends on when he chooses to retire.

What about Lance Armstrong? He could have won it for another two if he wanted too (or didn't caught for blood doping)

This is the UFC forum, hence UFC belt holders only

Fedor = Pride

I'm aware of that.

You want to know who'll keep their belt until they retire, and being that all your choices are not fit suggestions, I provided you with the only one. Maybe you should ask better questions. :thumbsdown:

So the answer remains. Fedor.

there is a good chance matty hughes will if he wins against bj, i think matt is stronger then bj but i also think that all of matts knowledge of fighting has been taught to him and hes become an awesome fighter but bj has this natural skill i c in him and i just admire how he is so well balanced while taking shots and sliding them off his head with great timing . Chuck loves to fight and hell fight till he baiscally cant fight no more and he will pass on the belt. chuck kicks some serious ass and he loves to fight u just dont c any fear in his eyes ****ing sweet guys.

Chuck Liddell will not retire because of his age. The minute he thinks his body can't take it any more is the day he will retire. Besides, one day or another Chuck will meet someone in the octagon who is better then him so he isn't going to keep that belt until he retires.
