    Last year at this time we had different HW and LW champs...who's going to have the most trouble holding onto their belt this year? Here's my opinion (difficulty scale 1-10 with 10 being the most difficult) did not factor in super fights only belt defenses

    HW CHAMP - Cain
    Overeem (If victory over Bigfoot)
    JDS (If victory over contender)
    Difficulty - 9
    Prediction - loses belt to Alistair Overeem

    LHW CHAMP - Jon Jones
    UFC 159 vs Chael Sonnen
    Machida vs Henderson winner
    Difficulty - 4
    Prediction - holds onto belt

    MW CHAMP - Anderson Silva
    Bisping (If victory of Belfort)
    Rockhold (unification bout) or Weidman
    Difficulty - 6
    Prediction - Holds onto belt

    WW CHAMP - Georges St. Pierre
    UFC 158 vs Nick Diaz
    Johnny Hendricks (If victory over Ellenberger)
    Nate Marquardt (unification bout)
    Difficulty - 10
    Prediction - Holds onto belt (very tough year for GSP)

    LW CHAMP - Benson Henderson
    Pettis vs Cerronne winner???
    Gilbert Melendez (unification bout)
    Difficulty - 7
    Prediction - holds onto belt

    FW CHAMP - Jose Aldo
    UFC 156 - Frankie Edgar
    Lamas vs Koch winner
    Difficulty - 9
    Prediction - holds onto belt

    BW CHAMP - Dominick Cruz
    Barao vs McDonald winner
    Difficulty - 9
    Prediction - loses belt to Renan Barao

    FLW CHAMP - Demetrious Johnson
    UFC on FOX 6 - John Dodson
    Benavidez vs McCall winner???
    Difficulty - 8
    Prediction - holds onto belt

    I love how you have Benson facing a fighter who is the last man to beat him as one of the easier matchups

    you have GSP having a "10" difficulty level of keeping his belt...more like 6 or 7 tops...no way is Silva at 6...should be 4...

    GSP is going to have an easy year.

    Diaz has nothing for him, and Hendricks is going to get jabbed for 25 minutes.

    Marquardt is a beast, but I think GSP beats him and don't think he'll get a shot unless Hendricks loses anyway.

    Also, Pettis is taking Bendo's belt away again.

    Why not make Silva -7, and GSP 0, this entire thread is subjective.

    Yup i see gsp either jabbing hendricks to death or wall and stalling him until he no longer can throw that big left with the same heat.

    IMO, Cain spits out overeem like a turd that won't come out his ass.

    Idk..Werdum did get Reem down on his back during one of his many attempts in that fight. And we all now Cains wrestling is wayyyyyyyyy better than Werdums. IMO it's all about where the fight takes place. Overeem won't lose if be can stay on his feet, I know it's a somewhat big "if" though.
