What UFC championship is most likely to change hands in the next year?
Almost every UFC title is up for grabs between now and the first month of 2015, but which champion stands the greatest chance of losing his or her belt in the next year?
As the divisional races get tighter and contenders get better, no one is safe amongst the champions not even the pound-for-pound best in the sport. Jon Jones faces two-time Olympian Daniel Cormier and if he’s successful he then has to contend with Alexander Gustafsson next year.
Chris Weidman has to deal with Vitor Belfort while Anthony Pettis faces Gilbert Melendez and potentially Khabib Nurmagomedov in his next fight. In other words, there are quite a few championships that could change hands by the time the next year is over.
We debate that very topic on today’s podcast along with the man who might settle the discussion with his next fight at UFC 179.
Chad Mendes drops by to talk about his title fight rematch with Jose Aldo, what’s different in this second fight for the belt and a few choice words for Irish bad boy Conor McGregor.
