    Let's play a game.

    The rules are simple: Think of a current MMA fact that, if you were to travel back in time and tell the You of several years ago, You would not only disbelieve, but You would call yourself a stupid Shertard.

    I've got some, most revolving around the welterweight title picture.

    Who'da thunk that the guy who convincingly lost to Rick "Embarrassed By Charlie Brenneman" Story would be the current welterweight champion?

    Who'da thunk that tons of Sherdoggers would say that Robbie Lawler should be the champion?

    Who'da thunk that people would be calling for Matt Brown to get a title shot?

    Who'da thunk that Rick Story would go on to be a sizable underdog to some guy fresh out of TUF?

    Who'da thunk that if Thiago Alves and Robbie Lawler were to fight, Lawler would be the betting favorite?

    And some not welterweight ones:

    Who'da thunk that the guy who barely edged Demian Maia in a sloppy boxing match would behead Anderson Silva?

    Who'da thunk that the guy who was manhandled and submitted by Phil Davis would be the first man to take down Jon Jones?

    Who'da thunk that a former welterweight would go on to beat a former UFC Heavyweight Champion and embarrass a top 5 Light-heavyweight?

    Chris Weidman will finish Anderson Silva via 2nd round TKO twice in a row.

    Anderson would get his leg snapped like a twig.

    St Pierre is going to lose a fight but get the win and not give Hendricks the belt and then retire

    Because that's how the Brazilian fighters talk. It started with Big Nog calling Couture "Handy" all the time and became a trend.

    A guy who lost TUF would dominate and knock out the number 1 P4P fighter.

    Who'd have thought a 26 year old would be only a few fights away from being the GOAT

    TUF finalist with 1 fight winning streak would beat Renan Barao

    LW midget coming off of TUF with 1 TKO win would make GSP tap to strikes

    Anderson Silva would be rocked and dropped standing and be KO'd by a wrestler (kinda similer to Cro Cop - Randleman if you think about it.... minus the taunting and dancing)

    GSP would retire after winning a controversial decision. (hopefully he comes back)

    Chael Sonnen would not only submit a top LHW, he would submit Shogun Rua.

    Not only is Dan Henderson still fighting, but he actually (T)KO'd Fedor and Shogun Rua.
