certainly, i won't argue that hughes has been an incredible WW fighter for quite sometime. he absolutely deserves his place in the hall of fame. i also don't think he should retire, i think he should round out his skills by studying striking and jiujitsu. however, i do not believe he will ever hold the WW belt again, and i do not think that he is a lock to beat matt serra. serra is far more well rounded than hughes. if he can wrestle serra, then he can win, if he can't, serra takes it.
