who do you think will be champions by 2011?????

Recommended Posts

Who do you believe will be the champs for each weight class by the start of 2011?

(we can look at this post when 2011 comes and see who wins)

 

MY PICKS..........

 

lightweight: BJ PENN

 

welterweight: GSP

 

middleweight: CHAEL SONNEN

 

light heavyweight: JON JONES

 

heavyweight: CAIN VELASQUEZ

 

 

 

bj will try to go up to WW but will get killed by GSP and go back down once again. GSP wont ever lose his belt whether he lays and prays every fight he wont ever lose it. chael sonnen is much like GSP. great takedowns and he works very well. jon jones is only growing and i think by the end of the year dana will have tog ive him a shot. maybe early next year. but i still think that dana will have to give him it even though he wants to wait a year. cain velasquez beats dos sontos by tko and then faces brock for the title. or carwin. but i think it will be brock and cain will literalkly outwrestle brock. these are my pick. WHAT ARE YOURS?? IF BE HAPPY TO KNOW:)

lw. kenny florian

ww. bj penn

mw.anderson silva or chael sonnen

lhw. anderson silva or jon jones

hw. junior dos santos

 

 

i predict gsp will move up to middleweight for good in 2011 but not have what it takes to beat the larger middleweights that leaves welterweight free for bj to dominate.

MW - Nate Marquart -( he will beat sonnen in a rematch and is much better well rounded fighter)

LHW- Jon Jones/ Machida/ Rua ( very hard to predict )

HW - JDS

Just 8 months for the end of 2010 so dumb thread but here goes nothing:

 

 

LW - BJ Penn

WW- GSP

MW- Anderson Silva

LHW- Shogun

HW- Shane Carwin

 

 

I don't see anyone on the lighter weight classes able to dethrone the champions and they will not vacant the position by moving up this year.

No he's not. He couldn't take GSP down and GSP would just pick im apart on the feet.

LHW: Shogun,[b']Evans[/b], or A.Silva

HW: Shane Carwin

 

evans is a darkhorse and if he sticks to his wrestling he could be champ for a very long time.

I don't think any of the champs are moving.

The only iffy class is HW with Carwin, but I really don't think anyone is going anywhere.

Well Dana said he wasn't going to give Jones any top contenders for at least a year or next 3-4 fights so I didn't even bother to put him.

y is the former champ a darkhorse? anyways there are a lot of young wrestlers in this division as well, Bader, Jones, Mr. Wonderful, etc...

 

assuming everyone stays in their current weight classes...

 

LW: BJ

WW: GSP

MW: Silva

LHW: Shogun

HW: Carwin

i meant that no one is picking him to be champion in 2011 and if you ask most people on these forums they would claim that asilva,machida,shogun,bones and rampage would beat him.

LW: BJ Penn

 

WW: GSP ( Dana says he doesn't even want GSP to move up and GSP by no means seems determined to do so)

 

MW: Anderson Silva or Vitor Belfort

 

LHW: Machida ( rather certain after he goes through shogun this time, most will agree Hes going to hold onto the belt.)

 

HW: Brock , Carwin, Junior Dos Santos

 

 

For LHW depending on how rapidly they improve Jon Jones and Bader could challenge for that belt but i highly doubt it. Jones is WAY OVER HYPED.

When did Dana say this, I think Jones has definitely earned the right to fight the elite of the division... At least a year or 3-4 fights, what a slap in the face when you look at some of the much lesser accomplished fighters who have fought for a belt. Do you have a reference for this by any chance?

Dana said this, can't find the link but he did.

 

And btw, he's not gonna get a title shot but he is definitely fighting top LHW's from now on...

The only one I see losing the belt anytime soon is Machida to Shogun. The rest will stay the same unless Anderson somehow retires by then which is highly unlikely. Guys like Jones and Bader will be prime contenders, but not quite at the level to challenge Machida and Shogun just yet. And to those who are saying that Brock is going to be knocked off will be very, very disappointed.

Who I think will be champ:

 

HW- Brock Lesnar

LHW- Rampage (A. Silva if they actually gave him a shot at title once Machida loses)

MW- A. Silva

WW- GSP

LW- BJ Penn

 

Who I want:

 

HW- Carwin

LHW- Rampage, A. Silva, or Rashad

MW- A. Silva

WW- T. Alves

LW- Really don't care.... (Need some new contenders)

the only type of people chael lose to are people with bjj like maia or filo. now i know a lot of these fools have good jits, but im sure chael can walk through most of it. im not saying it is guaranteed or anything, but he has a better shot at silva than any1. just another rashad or gsp.

HW- Carwin (He's gunna KO brock, Lesnar wont be able to GnP Carwin_

LHW- Shogun (I expect he will come out hungrier and smarter)

MW- A. Silva (unless he moves up) then- Nate Marquardt

WW- Bj Penn (main reason GSP won last time was Bj's conditioning)

LW- Bj Penn (he wants to test the waters at WW and not abandon his LW belt)

Dana said Jon Jones wasn't going to get any top contenders for the next 3-4 fights or over a year at the UFC 111 Q&A and pre fight press conference.

 

 

edit: sorry this was a response to those who asked on the previous page.

Why did so many people put Chael Sonnen the only way he will be champ is if A.Silva retires what a joke.

 

this is why, WRESTLING! even if Silva beats Sonnen, I think Silva would lose to Belfort and we all know how Belfort fairs against Wrestlers, so even if Silva runs through them the odds are they'll fight each other for the vacated title and there you have it...
