I'm going to go for champ predictions...
Fly - Johnson continues his rampage vs all the other Flys and ends year as champ
BW - Renan Barao beats Faber again in a closer match and defends 2 or 3 more times successfully
WBW - Rousey beat all contenders by Armbar for the year
FW - Aldo retains title, vacates and moves to LW, title fight between Uriah Faber and Frankie Edgar
LW - Pettis comes back, defends against Punk/Bendo the. Has FOTY against Aldo in a draw and a rematch for 2015
WW - Hendricks gets and retains the belt in 2014, beating Condit and Shields later this year
MW - BelforTRT loses to Weidman, Machida beats Mousasi, Machida beats Weidman in a close fight, rematch for 2015
LHW - Jones loses to Teixeira by KO, Glover retains vs Goose, glover vs Rashad in 2015
HW - Valasquez retains vs Werdum and Browne and ends year as champ
Also, Rashad beats Cormier, Cormier retires, Overeem beats Mir and Mir retires, TJ Grant gets a title shot again and loses, BJ loses again to Edgar, Cyborg quits the roids and signs with UFC, fights Rousey at 135lbs in 2015, Jon Jones debuts at HW, gets KTFO again, Anderson Silva fights some glamour fights before retiring, GSP returns at WW, loses by KO and retires, Lesnar does not return and Fedor remains retired
Anyone who lives within their means suffers from a lack of imagination.
