    After current champs deal with their immediate challengers, can 2016 be the year of multi-division champs?

    Aldo v Pettis

    Lawler v Weidman

    Jones v Cain

    Make it exciting Dana! Make it happen!

    PS: I pick Pettis, Lawler and Cain.

    Lawler vs Weidman? Do you want Lawler to die?

    Odds will be against him but I think Robbie has better and more diverse striking and he showed a markedly improved takedown defense vs Hendricks twice.

    Weidman slowed down vs Machida and was getting hit. I wouldn't put it past Ruthless to knock him out. Robbie fought at MW before.

    Yeah...that'd be a great way to fuck up most of the divisions.

    No way, I would be willing to bet all my future earnings on Weidman.

    It doesn't make sense to have champs fight champs. It's an automatic win/lose.

    TS is either a Bigg Rigg fan or just hates Lawler

    Aldo decisions Pettis by mixing it up and going heavy on leg kicks with no fear of the takedown

    No, you don't. You're trolling, and you have been reported.

    Superfights should absolutely not happen more than once a year.

    Yes, I would rather live in serene mediocrity of the current UFC match-ups. Why even be excited in this life if it messes up the divisions, eh?

    I was being kind to Weidman because Vitor is going to finish him...

    Pettis vs Aldo will happen if Pettis stays looking like a "Jon Jones" reign at 155, and if Aldo beats McGregor and Frankie II

    Weidman and Lawler won't happen because the WW title is going to be passed around like a bottle of whiskey.

    If Cain stays healthy, then he'll have to fight Jones someday. That would be the biggest UFC fight ever.

    Yeah, Lawler, an average sized MW from 2004 to 2012 with only one KO loss in his career is going to die against Weidman.

    You're just demanding legitimate contenders wait on the back burner while the UFC manufactures WWE-style drama. Sorry the WWE is lame these days, bro. Maybe check out Real Housewives.

    I haven't seen a single episode of WWE in my whole life.

    People remember the super fights of their lifetime. Do I care that Edgar has to wait a little longer? No. Do I want to see Lawler beat Hendricks or Ares again? No. This sport is all about the fans. Plus think of publicity such fights would generate. People would day: "hell, I remember 2016. Best year for fights ever. They don't do this s*** anymore" etc.

    This is just a stupid idea, who would want to watch any of those fights, and what weight would they be at?

    Do you know nothing about MMA?

    Lawler was a low ranked 185lber. He struggled against scrubs. 170lb is definitely his division. Weidman would murder him.

    Who would want to watch any of those fights? Your mum for a starter.

    I don't know. What weight Anderson v GSP was supposed to be at? The GSP that lost to Hendricks who lost to Lawler. Scratch that. Lawler v Vitor - who wants to see that? Who da F wants to see Diaz v Anderson. What idiot came up with that idea?

    Who would wanna watch Pettis v Aldo? The most stupidest idea of them all.

    Lawler has never fought at MW so I didn't think it through. I clearly know nothing about mma.
