All possible. They aren't bold picks, at all, though.

Nothing wrong with that....with the exception of Gustafsson....I canīt see him as champion, never.

What are we supposed to be laughing at? All of those guys are beasts who are potential champs. Barao is already the interim champ at 35, and he'll be fighting Cruz when he's coming off of a serious knee injury. Considering how much Cruz's style depends on movement, I'm really not expecting him to do well against Barao.*

*The injury situation is a serious problem with the MMA model. Champs in boxing would get at least one tune up coming off an injury in order to gauge their abilities. Coming back from a serious injury and months of rehabilitation to face a top level opponent who's been active while the injured fighter has been recuperating is a bit ridiculous.

Do you think Weidman beats Silva ??

MaCdonald still has holes in his game , Diaz and Condit beat him now for me , and a host of others test him hard , he aint even close to GSP standard

You posted this insinuating these guys were all underrated previously. They weren't. And none of them can beat the current champs. I'm treating GSP as the current champ. There is nothing I see in Rory that leads me to believe he can beat GSP. If GSP fought the competition Rory has fought, he would absolutely obliterate all of them. Rory doesn't even have a top 5 win.
gustafsson beating Jones? No way.
Weidman. He may be able to beat Silva, but it is very unlikely. Silva will find a way to win. He always does.
Barao beating Cruz? Very possible.
