    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.

    The trouble with our Liberal friends is not that they're ignorant; it's just that they know so much that isn't so.

    I almost added to my list that someone will have a PFL million dollar paycheck bounce...….so your no.2 is definitely on my radar too!

    With Jones now accepted(not really) that he could have a turinabol test show positive at any time, it would be more weird if he didn't piss hot...….and also very suspicious given that he should, according to their 'new science'

    I added more to the list....my computer is acting up so I saved after every 5 or so, so I didn't lose it all

    1. Dana retires, with the Me Too movement and so much dirt around the guy, Eskimo bothers won't be enough to save the guy. Behind the scenes, ESPN will make him go away.

    2. two fighters name Diaz will get in trouble with the UFC and testing. Maybe same Diaz twice, not that smart to call it.

    3. Conor loses 3rd fight in a row.

    4. Bellator actually signs 4 fighters we still give a shit about.

    5. Anthony Rumble Johnson wins gold in the UFC.

    6. Brock DOESN'T fight again.

    7. Jones has drug issues yet again, screws up card and or event.

    8. Hardy wins 2 bum fights and then is embarrassed badly with first real fight.

    9. Khabib wins 2 fights in the year.

    10. Hunt wins case or maybe just wishful thinking.

    11. Misfit has more post this year than last, Oh wait, I think I already won that one.

    12. Askren lays on Lawler for over 15 minutes

    13. Cormier does retire on time and becomes major TV guy. Like, THE guy.

    14. GSP is never heard of again...

    15. Chiesa beat Conor in court

    16. Weidman retires.

    17. Rogan Retires.

    18. DC beat Stipe again

    19. ummmm, Jones screws up yet again, yep, it's a long year, he screws up twice.

    20. Amount of lawsuits again Dana and the UFC, 20...
    Don't call it a comeback...

    I've had Dana retiring/leaving the last 2 years......didn't seem right for me to do it again. Same with Rogan! Weidman is a good chance, his body seems broken, another comeback and loss could spell the end.

    I'd love for DC to become THE Guy......I've grown to really like that guy in the last couple of years, he's just great and so deserving of more than he gets. The dude beat Stipe and went in to coach the kids at high school wrestling practice the next day, a bigger opposite of Jon Jones you could not get!

    I'm with you on at least 6 of those.

    On D.C......I guess I'm the only one who finds him only O.K....not overly big on his commentating
