Cain IMO
Both werdum and brown are bad match up for him

Cruz for sure. But I don't think he should count. He's in very special circumstances, and many fans have already mentally taken the belt away from him. Let's face it, Barao would've defeated Cruz long ago even if he had stayed healthy.

If you look at the toughness of competition, you'd have to say Weidman. He's going to face a murderer's row over the next year to keep that belt. But I think he'll pass that test.

So instead I'll say whoever wins the WW belt in the Hendricks/Lawler fight will likely lose it within the year. Neither fighter seems set to become a long-running champ.

The only three champions who look completely safe to me are Cain, Aldo, and Barao.

Jones. Glover is going to end his title reign. Nobody 's threatening Cain at all imo.

Cruz is easiest answer, n most likely to lose. But b/c that is special situation, i would say Pettis. I think his standup is the best in the div. But he can be taken down.

The winner of Hendricks/Lawler won't hold on to it for long. Also Pettis, as great as he can be, I don't think LW is designed for long champs.
