Forget titles changing hands...

Jon Jones obliterates Mauricio Shogun Rua... I hated every second of it! That has to go down as one of the most lop-sided title fights in history. Who the hell if going to be able to challenge Jones? Rashad is going to get raped, he has a 10 inch reach disadvantage to Jones and he's 5.5 inches shorter. Rampage has an 11.5 inch reach disadvantage and is 3.5 inches shorter. Machida has a 10 inch reach disadvantage and 3.5 inches shorter. Maybe Phil Davis in a year from now? Phil 'ONLY' has a 5.5 inch reach disadvantage and 2.5 inches in height. Seriously, Jones is just too damn big.

Heavyweight: Cain isn't losing... I just can't see anyone currently employed with the UFC that will pose ANY threat.

Light Heavyweight: With his performance against Shogun I think we can agree Jones is here to stay.

Middleweight: When Anderson Silva retires then we'll have a new champion.

Welterweight: GSP hasn't lost a round in three years.

Light Weight: Thank god for these guys... at least here we can see the belt move around a bit.

Featherweight: Good luck against Aldo. Enjoy your bruises!

Bantamweight: I figure Faber takes the belt.

Unexpected things can and do happen. Injury is always one option, certain styles of other fighters can turn out to be effective. Just think about Sonnen vs Anderson Silva, the Machida era, or BJ Penn, who seemed pretty dead set to keep the belt for a lot longer until Edgars came along.

And sometimes one punch can change everything, just think about Serra defeating GSP.

It's pretty unlikely everybody can hold on to their belt for very long, even though individually they're unlikely to lose.

I think someone at 205 will eventually take out Jones, possibly Machida or Anderson. I think Dos Santos might be able to take out Cain. As for MW and WW, agreed, those belts aren't going anywhere.

Jones has to go up to HW in the next few years, he is pretty tall and will fill out more.

The MMA sites are all already talking about Silva vs Bones. Just to add the numbers to the ones I posted above. Silva would have a 6.9 inch reach and a 2.5 inch height disadvantage. Cain would have a 7.5 inch reach and 3.5 height disadvantage.

If Jones flaps his arms fast enough he'll fly!

Jones would destroy Anderson just as easily as he did Shogun but this is probably the most exciting matchup the UFC could put together.
