It's safe to say the MMA world would be a much different place if every current UFC champion didn't exist.
Who would reign over each division? Would certain divisions even exist? Who would rise up and fill the void as the UFC's next slate of superstars?
The UFC has become a revolving door for upper-echelon talent, but their time in the spotlight often becomes truncated by the dominance of current champions. In the history of the UFC, there have never been more dominant champions than there are now.
Jon Jones has turned the once-prosperous light heavyweight division into a wasteland. Anderson Silva is more interested in fighting his clone than anyone at middleweight. Georges St-Pierre, who rarely even loses a round, has dominated himself into retirement. Ronda Rousey has only defended her UFC title once, and people are already clamoring for superfights.
Fans are captivated by elongated title reigns, but at the same time, it's always fun to rock the boat every once in a while and experience some change. It's out with the old and in with the new (in most cases).
Today, we look into the crystal ball and give life to a world with a brand new slate of UFC champions.
