    No one can defend their belts this year. Except for JJ. It just seems like its the year of the upsets. I bet there is people out there who have won a ton of $$$

    I kind of enjoy it this way. Remember when GSP used to just decision everyone, waiting for Fitch to win enough fights in a row for another shot?

    Woodley and Alvarez both got talked down as "not number 1 contenders, not deserving of a title shot" and now both are champions with 1st round finishes....... (the upsets continue)

    Don't forget Demetrious Johnson, he has yet to lose. I can see Mighty being the only UFC champ not being beaten this year. He was injured, but I am sure he will be back better than ever!

    USADA has literally leveled the playing field. Never seen anything like this until they took over testing.
