Both fighters are in my top 10 or even top 5 maybe.
But im going against the grain and saying Pierre, i feel that with the opponents they have both fought Trigg, Sherk, Penn.. that George has dominated those people more effectivly than Matt has.
for example i know Hughes beat trigg twice, very well, but Pierre dominated him like he was a child. Pierre put Sherk down which Hughes failed to do, letting that fight go to decision.
As for individual talents in different areas i think Pierre is as strong as hughes almost anywhere, his submissions are powerful, hes at least as strong in stand up (if not much better there) hes no slam artist as hughes is, but when George gets in his groove i think hes about unstopable.
The biggest way George would lose this fight is by getting thrown out of his game like penn did to him in there first round.
Hughes is one incredibly tallented fighter but he hasnt gone up against someone of Pierres level in a long time. While george has been fighting all the real title contenders.

Pierres fights since there first match
Miller
Trigg
Sherk
Penn
(imho a much more impressive set of fighters, or more impressive victorys [trigg])

hughes fights since there first match
Trigg
Riggs
Gracie
(for the record thats only 1 real title fight in almost 2 years)

i like hughes alot but the ufc hasnt been giving him the fighters he should be fighting.

St. Pierre will win this one, he is so dynamic. Anyone who beats BJ Penn is a badass. I beleive St. Pierre holds the edge because he is alot more well rounded than Matt Hughes. Dont get me wrong Hughs is a studd but his reign as welterweight champ will be over after this one.

Well, St. Pierre and Hughes are 2 of my favorites, but I think I have to go with "Rush" on this one too.

Swick also is fighting @ UFC 63, who he is fighting I am not sure. Also, If Dana stays with what he said a couple of months ago, Loiseau will be fighting Anderson Silva. But, that was a couple of months ago and things change.

In responds to the GSP beating Sherk so better then Hughes did there is a big difference.

When Hughes fought Sherk he was just a wrestler and sherk was fighting all around the world during that time and training alot more diligant(sp?).
When GSP fought him sherk only had a month and a half between fights and had been out of UFC for almost 6 months.

Not making excuse's for either fighters just letting the facts be known of why it probably happened that way. Hughes is a much better fighter then when he beat sherk.

But i agree, the fight could go either way and should be a great one.

St. Pierre is very athletic but he didn't avoid the ground n pound by Matt last time they fought. I would be very impressed by George if he beats Hughes.

I agree George is a very good fighter, but Hughes has been a great champ. I think if BJ Penn would have been in shape we would be seeing Hughes vs. Penn II. Hughes by submission round in round 2.

i agree^

What is it that is going to be on your mind when you're on your death bed? Will it be the tedious years of 9 to 5, or the memory of some great acheivement. Maybe a moment you stood in glory to the applause of millions.

I also would prefer to see BJ Penn and Hughes but hey...BJ took GSP out of his game in their first round. Matt could easily do that to GSP also, you gotta respect his guts - i mean frank trigg was 1 second off being the champ and look what happened to him. GSP is the real deal though.

All i can say is id hate to be betting on this one. This could go either way.
