    Heavyweight: Brock Lesnar-When does Gonzaga get a shot? Seriously, his superior wrestling skills and monstrous GnP could keep the challengers at bay until gets comfortable in the cage.

    I give him 1 year. 2 if Dana milks it.

    Light Heavyweight: Lyoto Machida- Him and Silva are the flagship species of UFC, so you may as well get comfortable.

    5-infinity


    Middleweight: Anderson Silva-It takes one bad day against a good wrestler to do it. Not counting Dan Henderson, I don't think a good enough one will swim with through his waters anytime soon.

    Until he retires or throws the fight (God Forbid)

    Welterweight: Georges St-Pierre- "It's mma..." - hpr

    He got his ass whipped by pure New Jersey bred aggression. Anything is possible.

    3-5 years.


    Lightweight: BJ Penn- A lot of technicians and talent go through the LW division. Factoring BJ's ups and downs, It's hard to say.

    I think Machida could hold on to it for a very long time, and even if he loses, I think he'll hang around the top for a good long while. Hopefully his ground game is as good as his standup.

    I also think Lesnar is better than a lot of folks give him credit for. Against Mir, he didn't push his advantage from that lockdown; he stuck with it until the inevitable happened. He might not be the mindless beast he's been pegged for. He's headstrong, for sure, but he does learn from his mistakes and is getting better. Plus, he's tough enough to survive a lot of those mistakes. He is a wildcard, but I'm not ready to say he'll be stuffed real soon.

    When GSP outfought Thiago on every level, I thought for sure I was looking at the best (despite his injury). I think he's the most well-balanced fighter I've seen, except perhaps Fedor. Too bad there's such a size disparity and so many politics between organizations.

    Blackmagic, you actually give Lesnar a year?

    I give him two fights, MAX. And I'm hoping Carwin prevents him from getting even that far.

    Too much Brock Lesnar hate. I don't see him losing any time soon.

    Lesnar's definitely not as bad as everyone's pegging him for, but we simply haven't seen enough of his game to make accurate judgments. There's a lot we haven't seen from him, and he's so new that his game is at a rapidly developing stage right now.

    I'm reserving judgement on Lesnar untill after the Carwin fight. He's certainly a force in the HW division and certainly championship material. He's an enourmous prick and I hope he gets is ass handed to him, but there's no denying he fucking dominated Mir, a former champion himself and no panty-waist. But Lesnar still has a lot of question marks around him, his chin being the biggest one.

    What I will say is that Lesnar's chin and stand-up WILL be tested by Carwin. How he measures up to that test will determine if he's going to be champ for very long.

    Two fights is a year for main event fighters. They got a train (4 months) and they got to schedule the damn thing (3 to 4 months). Anderson Silva being the exception, but Anderson Silva doesn't really get hurt during fights.

    I figure Dana is going to milk the attraction for another three fights. Brock will fight Kongo, a mid-range fighter, and then another semi-retiree before he faces off against Carwin or Gonzaga. Hell, he may even fight Kimbo between now and then.

    Wait was he announced to fight Carwin?
