    And if you think so who out of today's fighters you think could do it. imo Aldo might have the best chance to do it.

    JBJ was the only potential. Dude seems like he can make the cut to MW or go up to HW.

    While we're on this topic, think we will ever see a multi-gender Champion? Win a belt with wang intact and then lop that fucker off and jump into the female divisions.

    I see it happening.

    Jones could probably do it. I doubt he will ever see the need to though. Usually fighters only change weight when they're not having success where they're at.

    Jones taking the HW belt is very possible...

    For myself, I think that Cain will be down on vegas odds...

    And Jones cutting to MW would be insane... he would look like cerrone, a skeleton!

    DJ would be the one I could see doing it if the UFC put in a 115 division. He had a competitive fight with Cruz.

    I think the only weight classes its possible in is a 145 who can go up or down a weight class. But with the way things are run now I'd say its pretty much impossible to do.

    I think it's meant as a fighter winning belts in different divisions at different times like Penn and Couture. I don't think the UFC would allow one fighter to hold two belts at once, let alone three.

    Penn, Couture and Henderson if you count Pride.

    If you count early UFC tournaments, Vitor Belfort will have the opportunity to become a three div. champion on Feb. 28th.

    Surprised no ones mentioned Edgar.

    He already had the LW title, is close to another shot at FW, and could drop to BW if he had the incentive (another insta-shitle tot).
