Here are the results from our latest MMA fan poll, which of course is about as scientific as a box of hammers.

Which UFC champion will be the first to lose their title in 2012?


29% - Frankie Edgar (lightweight)
21% - Junior Dos Santos (heavyweight)
14% - Georges St-Pierre (welterweight)
11% - Dominick Cruz (bantamweight)
10% - Jose Aldo Jr. (featherweight)
  5% - Anderson Silva (middleweight)
  5% - Jon Jones (light heavyweight)
  4% - No one will lose the belt in 2012

Maybe it's that the lightweight division has gotten increasingly deeper with top-level talent. Maybe it's that people still refuse to give Edgar the credit he deserves for defending the title three times (2-0-1).

Next question: Who deserves the next light heavyweight title shot?
