I hope GSP gets a belt. I guess Conor will have his belt too. As a wish, Cain has the HW title though he may not fight enough in a year to have it.

I reckon GSP has a good shot at becoming the WW champ, even if it means going via RDA. Khabib will have the LW. Bobby Knuckles is young enough to have the MW title, even if it's getting back in a rubber match from Yoel. Esparza for WSW and Vieira for WBW. Otherwise, I can't see much changing elsewhere - Valentina is already a shoe in for WFW.

Agree with most, except:

BW = Garbrandt

LW = Conor (wins against Tony/Khabob at end of the year)

WW = GSP

* Conor + GSP are offered mad money to comeback = straight into title fights

LHW = Gustafson

HW = Volkov

Things will get interesting if Cormier will win against Miocic on July - or can he?
