I don't recall the "out of shape excuse" being used very often by fighters after a loss. I hear it more from the fighters entourages and fans. Lets keep in mind that many fighters compete in weight classes that are sometimes substantially below their natural weight point and holding that weight year round is very very difficult.

I think its a bit out of order calling on BJ to take the fight at such short notice he was never gonna say no was he. So Hughes wins .

Stefan Struve
Donald Cerrone
Glover Texiera
Cub Swanson
Kim Dong - Hyun.

BJ Penn & Hughes

From what I can tell, BJ Penn seems to be one who is always ready to throw down.

I believe that he will be beat Hughes.

The reason I believe BJ will win, is because BJ is different than those Hughes trains with.

Hughes is always bragging about having the best of the best to train with. Unfortunately, BJ seems to be unique in certain aspects, with regards to his style.

In other words, I don't believe BJ is as predictable as other fighters and it will be more difficult for Hughes to formulate a sure-fire game plan.

Hughes, on the other hand, is predictable. He is essentially the best of common fighting styles.

I believe Hughes will be beat if he is not able to grasp BJ's entire arsenal of fighting moves and techniques.

I believe it will probably be the best fight we have seen this year.

I can not wait to see it, as I believe we are going to see a belt change here.
