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.
What this young gentleman said.
Except the part with taking Hughes. I am taking Diego, for being too nutty. lol
