    About 50/50 on those predictions. Man what a bad year for Hendo though

    The womens division fails and does not make it into 2014. Rousey gets upset and loses

    Cormier loses in his second fight

    Melendez loses 3 matches in a row (assuming he stays at LW)

    Sonnen gets one more main event after losing to Jones then retires

    Faber moves back to 145 after Aldo leaves and gets a title shot
    Had a few right.. but some way off

    Think we were all a little premature in expecting the women's division to fold though it may yet in a year or or two if they don't start promoting fighters besides Rousey

    It is quite entertaining to read previous predictions. I don't think anyone saw Gil being matched up with Sanchez, but I think many would have called that a FOTY candidate. Now Hunt/Bigfoot on the other hand, I don't think anyone saw coming both in match and result.

    I'll get things started:

    Cain will still be the HW champ
    Frankie will win the FW title, after Aldo bumps up to LW
    GSP will still be the WW champ

    Weidman never get's a shot at the title. He'll fill in for Vitor after he pulls out of the Bisping fight due to injury, then promptly lose.

    Silva vs. Jones will come oh so close to happening, but won't due to some crazy bullshit.

    Chael Sonnen will retire after getting tapped against Bones. Maybe have a couple money fights, but he'll be done by the end of the year.

    Rousey gets KOed in her first title defense. The UFC women's division doesn't see 2014.

    OneFC holds an event in the US.

    Bellator gets crazy ratings on Spike; Dana White counter programs them at every turn.

    Eddie Alvarez and Gilbert Melendez have the FOTY
    Not even close

    Kimbo> Rampage
    Aldo beats Edgar... moves up to LW for some great fights...

    Bendo easily beats Melendez, who moves down to FW...

    Pettis vs. Bendo is another close highly contested fight...

    Rory continues his success at WW but he and GSP will not fight...

    Anderson beats Weidman... then takes out GSP in the super fight, then gets put out by Jones... Then retires.

    Jones continues to dominate at LHW... beats Chael, Goose, and possibly Hendo... 1 rematch against a former opponent... Lyoto or Rashad... then he moves up to HW...

    Cain beats AO then faces JDS in the fall for the trilogy...



    GSP/Rory, DC/Cain, Fitch/Kos, continue to not want to fight each other... yet the fans are still on Anderson for not wanting to fight Lyoto in the division above him.

    Jim Miller will finally get a title shot.

    Sonnen retires and becomes a leading figure on the Fox broadcasts.

    Aldo moves to LW. At least 3 LW fighters immediately move to FW.

    Dominic Cruz returns; gets leg kicks to death by Barao.

    Vitor crushes Bisping. Silva is uninterested in a rematch. With no clear contender, he sits on the sideline. He only fights once in 2013, it's either GSP or Bones. RH has a brain aneurysm and isn't allowed on the computers at the retirement home anymore. RD assumes the fight is with GSP, has an orgasm so violent that he shatters his own hip. Finally, his pills are legal and he's happier than ever. With no hip, he becomes aware of the plights of the handicapped and declares himself handi-capable. The forum is then accused of being racist against the handicapped. Repeated attempts are made to explain to RD that handicapped isn't a race. Many images captioned "Haters gonna hate" follow.

Anderson Silva publicly questions their manhood. Page retires and now works at a Barnes and Noble. Roaddawg never recovers from Anderson's comments.
    MIZ, you are my hero.

    That cracked me up. It's also incredibly accurate.

    Big Nog will retire after a fight in either Japan or Brazil.
    A member of the Gracie family will croak.
    Pettis will beat Cerrone and lose in a FOTY candidate to Bendo.
    Barao will beat MacDonald and Cruz.
    Rousey will break ground twice. She will be in the first womens UFC fight against Carmouche and the first UFC women vs man fight against cyborg.
