Current champions Heavyweight: Brock Lesnar Light Heavyweight: Lyoto "The Dragon" Machida Middleweight: Anderson "The Spider" Silva Welterweight: Georges "Rush" St. Pierre Lightweight: BJ "The Prodigy" Penn I am going to go with BJ Penn losing his title. I am sure he will retain against Kenny Florian but I think, despite how much I hate to admit it, I think Diego Sanchez (assuming he keeps up with that intensity he showed against Clay Guida...and assuming Diego can earn himself a No. 1 contender spot which I think he can if he continues showing said intensity) can quite possibly take the belt.

Brock will be the first to lose. He is the least experienced, and also has yet to have his chin tested. Another aspect of his game that is still missing is submission defense. If he runs into someone that can stop his take downs he will get laced on the feet.

Who do you think will take Brocks belt? There is nobody in the heavyweight division right now that will even give him a challange. Fedor is the only one I can see giving him any competition for the belt and it will be atleast another year before he is signed to the ufc.

I think Lyoto Machida is the most likely to lose his belt as of right now. One reason being that the light heavyweight division is probably the most stacked division. Machida already almost lost the belt to Shogun, so I think its more likely than others. Brock Lesnar is out of action for a while so that eliminates him for a bit. BJ Penn has only lost one fight at lightweight and it was a decision to jens pulver that many people thought BJ Penn should have won. GSP hasn't had a challenge since he was tko'd by Matt Serra so I don't see him being beat anytime soon and if he does lose I guarentee it will be to a ko or tko. Anderson Silva, well lets just say its Anderson Silva... he'll more than likely retire champ.

I would have to say that BJ Penn will be the first to lose his belt. There are some excellent lightweights out there like Diego Sanchez and Clay Guida. That is if he doesn't vacate his belt first.

I go with BJ Penn to but not because he will lose to a fight at lightweight. He will lose the belt by vacating it to try his luck again at Welterweight where he was once a champion when be submitted Matt Hughes. He lost to current champion Georges St. Pierre but Penn had the chance to beat St. Pierre. Anderson Silva may also be losing his belt same way as Penn if he decides to continue fighting at light heavyweight where he just dominated Forest Griffin. This is doubtful though as he has expressed disinterest of fighting his buddy and fellow Brazilian Lyoto Machida who is the champion at that weight.

Spider is moving up to light heavyweight but we still hope a real fight against his sparring partner and team mate Lyoto Machida
