Wow, heck yeah! Great fight. I think this is a tough match up for Hughes. While Diego's takedowns are so so, he is actually very very good on the ground. He went at it for 3 hard rounds on the ground with Nick Diaz (among others) and won. Plus while his standup isn't top-of-the-class it's much better than Hughes's rockem sockem robot impression.

I think Diego's chin, decent boxing and legit ground game will give Hughes problems. That being said you can never count Hughes out. I thought Almeida would be a tough fight for him and he just waxed Ricardo. I'll be pulling for Hughes all the way. Diego is just a bit too nutty for me to take.
