    Some real gimmies there and some real...."out there" ones
    We must reject the idea that every time a law's broken, society is guilty rather than the lawbreaker. It is time to restore the American precept that each individual is accountable for his actions.

    I'll give this prediction thing a try:


    1/ Andrea KGB Lee wins the UFC women's FLYWEIGHT title
    2/ Conor does NOT fight Khabib in Russia
    3/ Cain Velasquez fights TWICE in 2018
    4/ The current Hollywood sex scandal will rear it's head in one of the top 2 org's in MMA
    5/ DC does not become a 2 division champion
    6/ Fedor wins the Bellator HW GP
    7/ UFC re-signs with FOX
    8/ A MMA fighter will die due to issues from a bad weight cut
    9/ NO UFC PPV will do over 450K that does not involve either Conor OR Nate
    10/ A former UFC champion will sign with Bellator
    11/ BluenoseGreig will not win a PC season
    12/ Anthony Johnson will fight for the UFC HW title
    13/ Sage Northcutt will be ranked in the top 15 by years end
    14/ Urijah Faber un-retires
    15/ Khabib wins UFC gold

    Couldn't get to 20?

    I really hope the death one doesn't happen, but it would not surprise me if it did.......sounds like Hall had a very close call yesterday, went into seizure and was in a very bad way, almost complete kidney failure too.

    There is a few out there predictions, but the biggest one is Cain fighting twice, no chance in a million years of that one happening!!!!

    The sex scandal thing, I'm super surprised it hasn't already because WME is heavily involved and ones being accused. As for death due to bad weight cut, that kind of needs to happen. Awful thing to say I know, but nothing will change until it does happen.

    Yeah, Ari Emanuel has already been heavily accused for covering stuff up.
