    Usman, Adesanya, Shevchenko, and Nunes.

    My guess is:

    1.) Usman: he could lose to Colby next. I think he will lose his belt by the end of 2022 regardless.

    2.) Adesanya will defend 3 more times before someone is able to wrestle him.

    3.) Shevchenko defends 4-5 more times until she’s old and loses motivation.

    4.) Nunes @ 135 defends 5ish more times before she’s old.

    5.) Nunes @ 145 defends 8 more times until she dies of old age and then her corpse defends 3 more times.

    Nunes' 145 title defense consists of her shadowboxing against herself in a mirror because there is literally no one else in that division

    1) Nunes @ 135- I think Shevchenko beats her when they fight likely within the next year

    2) Adesanya- I don't really see any of the current crop of contenders beating him decisively. However with the way he fights, it's certainly possible that he loses a decision, especially vs a wrestler. So he probably will lose a close decision at some point.

    3) Usman- Similar to Izzy, I don't see any of the current top WW's beating him. Usman is dominant and keeps getting better. Will probably hold onto the belt for at least a couple more years.

    4) Shevchenko/Nunes (145)- They'll never lose these belts, just depends on when they want to retire.

    Nunes = retirement
    Izzy = has had close fights against Gastalum and Romero already
    Usman = continues to improve and I think he’ll reign for a while
    Shevchenko = great fighter in a shit division will lead to long reign

    they all could lose their belt next.

    i don't see what colby has done since getting his jaw broken to inspire such confidence in the rematch. i wouldn't be surprised if usman finished him quicker this time.

    It’s not fair to put Shevchenko or Nunes up there with Usman and Izzy. The male divisions of these 2 gentlemen are stacked with tons of talent (especially WW) but the WMMA divisions all suck (with the exception of SW and even that does not compare to men divisions)

    The question is between Usman and Izzy. I think both retire undefeated in their weight class personally but it’s more likely Usman loses it first because his opponents have been pretty competitive so far (Colby, Burns nearly beat Usman at some points). Even Masvidal was able to put great offense in the 1st fight.

    I see all of them sustaining their titles just due to their divisions ( + , of course their talent).
    I'll throw in 2 maybes- I give Whitaker a real shot in re match and if kayla can make 145, Nunes Harrison becomes the super fight that Cyborg Nunes was supposed to be( they have to sign kayla- first)

    * also- Nunes is the goat- no question but this is a dangerous time for her. This is when complacency sinks in , especially at a gym where they're concentrating on other fighter. Shes an enormous favorite vs Pena and she looks past this gal - and just like that , it happens. Pena is a tough ----- and she , genuinely, thinks she can beat her. History is history.

    I might even throw a small wager on this( with the notion I'll probably lose ) - we're due for one of those " massive " upsets.

    * The 125 division ( shev) is just silly. When the champ is basically a 9-1 favorite in most of her fights , ??????

    Izzy is the only one with an obvious hole in his game so that would suggest he would lose his title first.

    Who could outwrestle Izzy at 185 in 1/2 years?
    I only see Whitakker winning with a good gameplan(less head hunting)

    Izzy
    Toss up

    Usman doesn’t ever lose a fight assuming he retires after 2-3 fights. My man seems physically broken.

    Women have longer careers because they never had explosive power to lose
