I'm neutral here.

Two things I saw from the last fight you can't coach up. A big right hand and intelligence. GSP's right hand is not big enough to deter Hughes from taking him down, and he proved that he wasn't smart enough not to be taken down and subd.

GSP threw nice techniques, with an early take down and spin kick, in the first fight. But he admitted in that ESPN interview that he respected Hughes too much and didn't believe he was donig the things he was doing. Not exactly reassuring.

Matt sizes him up in the first and takes him down, pounds him out in the 2nd.

Someone mentioned thier last victories and how GSP's were more effiecient? Did he miss the Gracie fight? Hughes' training was harder than that.....

RANGERS LEAD THE WAY!

I'll agree that GSP losing the first fight is not very reassuring. This fight will most likely end the same way. But I do think it is reassuring that GSP knows mistakes were made in the first fight. If GSP learns from those mistakes and not repeat them the second time around, he could possibly win. Another plus for GSP is that Matt Hughes tends to get a little overconfident. This was how Matt lost to BJ Penn. If Matt underestimate GSP, it could be his downfall.

Prediction: GSP wins by submission.

If GSP has been training appropriately, then he will be preparing to beat Matt by submission. Matt was caught in a triangle by Newton, rear naked choke by Trigg, and didn't Penn submit him as well? I doubt that GSP can keep from being taken down but maybe look for a submission on the way down. The best thing about this fight is that both of these guys fight to win. It will be fast and furious from the very beginning. I want to see Bob Sapp fight Matt.

My vote was for Hughes although I have been waiting for this rematch.I think this fight will go alot further and I think GSP is the best chance for taking Hughes right now.Unless Newton came back I thought he was robbed.
I also think Karo would be a good match for Hughes.

Karo got beat by Sherk TWICE and Hughes beat sherk, so i donno unless he fights someone that will make him look like a monster i doubt he'll be a Welterweight contender.

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.

This match is real unpredictable since Georges is on such a great streak beating every fighter Hughes had trouble with. However, Hughes doesn't train that hard but when he does train a lot like he did against Royce Gracie he could come out perfect. If Georges comes out like he did against Frank Trigg and Sean Sherk, Matt Hughes is fried meat. It's really unpredictable who would win this but it will be a great match. I hope Hughes finally gets that belt off his waste because I'm tired of seeing him defend it against easy fighters like "Renato Verissimo", "Sean Sherk", "Joe Riggs", etc but he defends it sometimes against good fighters. I really hope Georges wins I'm tired of Hughes having that belt since 2004.

If Hughes gets by GSP which I think he will. Who else is there that poses a real threat besides BJ Penn. I have seen a few postings of people saying they heard BJ is going down to 155,and if that happens who's left. Diego vs. Karo will clear up the picture some, but I don't think either one of them can take Hughes.:

Conditioning - both have it in spades, power to Hughes speed to St Pierre, i have it choke out by ST Pierre in 2 rounds, if it goes distance then Hughes.
But to sit on the fence i believe both have equal chance to win depending on fate.
