Them's Fightin' Words 2015 Predictions Contest

Once again, congrats to grizzlyedwin for winning this year's contest. However, his winning predictions have led to reform in the rules of the contest.

 

RULES:

 

  1. You get five predictions. Your five predictions must be different from everyone else. In the case of someone posting duplicates, whoever posted it first will get it.
  2. Can't be super vague. (ex. a UFC belt will only be defended twice. However, the UFC middleweight title will switch hands twice is acceptable.) I am not going to try to figure out what you mean.
  3. Although this doesn't reflect my attitude on last year's predictions (trial-and-error), we're going to automatically disqualify predictions of events that are pretty much a foregone conclusion. Examples would be:

             - UFC will go to court

             - Jon Jones/Daniel Cormier will fight Alexander Gustafsson for the UFC light heavyweight title

             - A UFC show will be canceled/postponed/delayed/moved

          

          Basically, X will fight Y who we already know is lined up to fight for a title anyway. I will let you know if you posted something like that. Lets avoid that because it's boring TBH. Remember, I will generally side with the more specific ones. First one to three or the closest to three wins.

 

The tiebreak, if needed, will be the UFC champions on December 20, 2015 (the day after the last UFC event of the calendar year). No two people can have the exact same champions at the end of the year. If the UFC moves an event to a later date, it will be the champions the day after that specific event.

 

HW (265lbs):
LHW (205lbs):
MW (185lbs):
WW (170lbs):
LW (155lbs):
FW (145lbs):
BW (135lbs):
FlyW (125lbs):
Womens BW (135lbs):

Womens StrawW (115lbs):

 

I will close the thread and save the predictions to a Word file once the FS1 prelims for UFC 181: Jones vs. Cormier begin. So that's January 3 at 7:00 p.m. CST. Good luck.

  1. Mayweather vs. Pacquiao happens and Showtime & HBO have dual broadcasts much like Lewis vs. Tyson in 2002.
  2. Brock Lesnar has at least one MMA win in 2015 after his WWE contract ends in April.

  3. A top female fighter (ranked in the top 5 at 115, 135, or 145) will fail a drug test.

  4. Ben Askren will leave One FC and sign with the UFC at some point.

  5. Fox will get another title fight (undisputed or interim) above featherweight on one of its four shows.
