By end of 2004

I hope that there is a UFC LW and HW Champion crowned by end of 2004.

I agree, but they need a MW title also.

There won't be a MW Champion I think until 2005 or 2006.

I think we'll see a heavyweight champ in the next 6 months....maybe sooner if they set-up Sylvia/Arlovski without making someone annihilate Mir first.

As for lightweight, who knows? Are they just going to pretend it's vacant or what? Ditto for the 185 belt. I'm assuming they'll get Lindland...but I can't see him fighting Tanner if he beats Baroni again. Do we *really* need Lindland/Baroni 3?
