Someone needs to kick his ass? Excuse me? What is this armchair warrior time? Matt Hughes works hard to be champion and retain that belt, I think he deserves credit for it.
As such, BJ Penn did NOT come in the best shape of his life, as he claimed he was going to, and he suffered for it. So I have no real respect for him. He claimed to be 'the champion' after NOT losing the belt, yet he comes into the fight in bad shape, as usual, and as usual he talks a lot of trash before the fight.
Personally I don't think he dominated at all, I think the fight was a seesaw battle back and forth. Sure Matt Hughes has chinks in his so called invincible armour, after all he's human, but give credit where it's due, and pay the man respect. He fights anyone at anytime, and does not cry. For the most part he is a class act, and a deserving champion.
If anyone wants to step up and try to take his belt, he's willing and able to defend it. GSP has already tried and been beaten, and now he wants to try him again. I hope he makes the most of his chance. Matt Hughes will.
Good luck to the better man. The same as in this fight with Penn.
Guess who won? The better man. Hughes.
