Isn't Serra a JJ guy?
And I don't like Hughes. He's too...smug? I don't know, it seems as if he thinks he's more than he actually is. As Serra said, "He's the football jock that picks on all the dorks". Just something about him makes me dislike him.

He'll probably win, but I'm rooting for Serra.

Better striking.
Better subs.
Nearly equal wrestling.
Nearly equal conditioning.

More importantly, Matt Hughes is not improving, and gnp doesn't win on it's own anymore. Whereas Matt Serra has developed as a fighter, subs, gnp and stand up.

Though obv gsp is a very undependable fighter - I still think Serra was impressive.

Personality-wise, Hughes is obv a very hard worker with no issues with winning - good game planning. But Serra has a heart continuing to try after so many set backs. And Argy Bargy as he is - he seems like he's got the right attitude to me, Hughes seems a bit over-confident.

Same here Bonnar...I would love tosee Serra beat Hughes just because of Hughes' reaction to Serra winning against GSP, but I think Serra'sbest chance is to mix it up, start standing and then take a frustrated Hughes down and sub him out...

You can't have everything. Where would you put it?

I love Chuck Liddell, but he did an interview whacked out on pills. Rampage is the furthest fighter away from 'professional' (just google him).

we can go on and on about past and present champions' unprofessionalism, but the point has been made. these guys fight for a living and can't be expected to be as squeaky clean as Derek Jeter when it comes to dealing with the media. I understand if you still think that Serra goes over the top though.
heh "pills". He was coked out the night before, plain n simple, there's been a bunch of clues about his association with the stuff.

i'll give you the striking and maybe sub skills, but wrestling and conditioning???? im sorry but are you crazy?

Hughes' physical attributes (strength especially) is way better than Serra. His wrestling is also way better. I think its going to be a closer fight than people realize, but Hughes does have the better wrestling and conditioning.
