    JDS matches up with the Heavyweight champ.
    Jon Jones matches up with the LHW's paper champ.
    Gus matches up with the LHW's true champ.
    Jacar

    Heavyweight: Andrei Arlovski, holds a victory over Werdum, faster and has never been subbed.

    Light HW - Jon Jones, plain and simple. He beat DC with ease.

    Middleweight - Luke Rockhold, I see him as an equal to Weidman. Can't wait for this fight.

    Welterweight - Georges St. Pierre, I don't see Lawler losing the belt in the divisions current state. He could even beat GSP.

    Lightweight - Khabib Nurmegdamedov, holds a win over Dos Anjos.

    Featherweight - Conor McGregor, he has shown and proven what he is capable of.

    Bantamweight - Dominick Cruz, if this fight ever happens it will surely be entertaining.

    Flyweight - Henry Cejudo, I think he has the ability to take down MM at will and beat him up.

    Women's BW - Holly Holm, if she keeps working her TDD she is the biggest threat currently signed by the UFC.

    Womens SW - Maryna Moroz, can keep up with Joanna's pace.

    This, apart from Carlos Condit. I'd have to say Hendricks is a bigger threat, mainly because he beat him once and lost a close decision. I haven't enjoyed his most recent fights, but Robbie's been killing evrybody else, so credit where it's due.

    I don't know why everybody is so high on Arlovski yet say that JDS should retire. Fickle fans.

    Heavyweight - Andrei Arlovski, go Arlovski! The original pitbull
    Light Heavyweight - Rashad (lol)? Gus, I think
    Middleweight - Jacare Souza, Weidman by tko
    Welterweight - Rory, he came closest to beating him, but I hope Condit gets it done
    Lightweight - Khabib, coming for that belt
    Featherweight - Connor McGregor, although I think Aldo beats him
    Bantamweight - Cruz, whenever he comes back
    Featherweight - Benavidez, despite getting ktfo, stands the best chance
    Women Bantamweight - Cyborg Santos, until this actually happens
    Women Strawweight - Claudia Gadelha, but I see Joanna finishing her this time
