Come on, get serious. He didn't really gas, rather they both just canceled each other out by round 2 and 3.
I still think Penn is going to win, though. Hughes has not really changed.. Just a better version of the same thing.. Same game plan, which he has not deviated from in the last 5 matches..
Shoot off a couple punches just so you can shoot for the legs and then either ground pound or submit.. That is a weakness, seeing Penn took advantage of this very same weakness last time they fought.. This is not being considered here.
IN other words, Penn is the only person who was able to counter this "formula" Hughes uses. So, why is it now, he is considered impossible to defeat in people's minds here?
