    I predicted that the Strikeforce merger would lead to most Strikeforce top talent winning UFC titles. They either won the titles or were top contenders in almost all of the divisions. I am going to let someone else do the list.

    I'd have to say Tyrone Wooly. We were both about 11. Sitting next to each other at the same birthday party, he was sitting there looking kinda bored playing with that birthday You that you blow into it and it whistles. Then unroll and rolls back up. I, dropped a piece of tomato that i was picking off my sandwich onto the floor, i didn't want the dog to get so I decided to pick it up. Well what I didn't realize was that i had one sitting in the chamber, when I bent down to get the tomato, i ripped a fart that was loud, rancid, and raw.
    When I came back up, everyone was looking at us in such disgust.
    I pointed to Tyrone with my thumb and shouted "He Did It!"
    Tyrone was SO enraged. He threw down his toy whistle, and did a move I think it's a "throat throw". He grabbed my throat and THREW me into the curtains.
    THAT'S when I knew he had the makings to be an Ultimate Fighting Challenging Champion!

    When I saw Silva vs. Leben I went way out on a limb and said, "I think this guy might be going places."

    Stipe, remember seeing him against Beltran and thinking to myself this guy will be a champ someday.

    There are many others. obvious ones are GSP and Jones.

    I was 100% convinced he would never be stopped. When Couture beat him down bloody I was shocked and just couldn’t comprehend.

    Jon Jones absolutely when I saw him fight Bonnar. I told all my friends that Jones would be the champ at 205 before too long.

    Seriously, no joke, and I’m as guilty as flinging the prospect meme around as anyone else, Erick Silva looked like a stone cold killer in his first two or three fights....

    Then he hit a wall, that turned out to be a ceiling. A vet very low ceiling.

    Check the sig. Shogun/Weidman/DC/Cain/Werdum all on there pre-champ days and I believed gold was in the future for all. Get ready to add Khabib to that list soon.
