He was the one I was most excited about. I think Cormier is a can.
Between Cormier at 205, Gegard and maybe Hendo; 2013 might be the end of Jones' reign.
Larkin is going to be fun to watch grow, I think Rockhold could get exposed, Souza is still getting better.
Tarec could make some noise.
Healy will be a good gate keeper, Bendo should trainwreck Melendez, and Noons + Thompson + Couture will fade very very quickly in the DEEEEEP UFC LW division. Also glad they signed the Holobaugh kid, he put up an awesomely great effort vs. Healy.
