    Just under two weeks left of 2016, fam. Get your predictions in.

    Given who we've seen rise and fall in the UFC this year, who are poised to become or remain the strap-bearers of their class in 2017?

    FyW-

    If Cain beats Werdum, I think his wrestling will be key vs Stipe

    Jones vs DC, grappling will play a huge role in that fight

    Jacare is coming for the MW strap with his BJJ

    Maia is coming for the WW strap with his BJJ

    Khabib is coming for the LW strap with his wrestling.

    I think it will be the year of grapplers.

    HW: Cain
    LHW: Jones
    MW: Jacare
    WW: Maia
    LW: Khabib
    FW: Holloway
    BW: Cruz
    FLW: DJ
    WFW: Cyborg
    WBW: Ronda
    WSW: Andrade

    Likes to all dawgs who replied already. Lots of different predictions here...too hard to reconcile all of them.

    Only one can be right.

    50/50 I think. Both Aldo and Holloway prefer to strike, Joanna is a Muay Thai machine and Stipe mostly strikes, although he's kind of a "jack of all trades". Those will keep their belts as long as they are not doing any dumb choices. Others either are grapplers or will be replaced by grapplers.

    probably but Aldo is due to get injured again.

    Max will defend the interim and end the year with a belt.
