Serra vs. Hughes

ESPN - Woods: Serra seethes at thought of Hughes - MMA

I found an interesting statement in this article and it is by Dana White. He says that he thinks the fight will be closer then everybody thinks and Serra has better standup. The one that surprised me was Serra having better standup just for the fact that he wasn't backing up Matt Hughes for once but I agree with that Serra has better standup and I was wondering who everybody has. I'm not sure yet I want Serra to win but I'm not sure if he will but I think he will train harder harder for this fight then the GSP fight so I think I am going with the upset... For Now

its gonna be close. i'm not saying it would be easy, but in my eyes hughes tips the scale. i dont think serra would be able to check his emotions at the door. i see hughes fighting a smart fight and taking it to serra.

Man do I hate both of these guys. I cant even pick which one I hate more. I kind of want serra to win more just so GSP can get a rematch and kick his ass. But if I get to see GSP KO hughes again I definetly will still be happy. So I guess its a win win seeing how both of them will lose once in there next 2 fights.

I want to see an epic Hughes vs. GSP 3 rubber match

Hughes will take Serra down, and pound on him. Probably finish him in the second or third round.

I see Serra trying to keep the fight standing and Hughes taking the fight to the ground. Hughes is going to take him down and pound on him and I'm guessing by the end of the second round Serra will have gassed and Hughes will TKO him.

Serra takes this one. I couldn't see any possible way of Serra beating GSP and I feel the same here. Just a hunch though.

I want Serra to win but I really can't see it happening. The only chance for Serra is to avoid the takedowns and force Hughes into striking with him!

You forget that this isn't just some brutal sport where everyones out to kill each other. Its much more like a game of physical chess.-looney liam

IF Serra can effectively channel his emotions, then i think an upset is plausible.

he kind of has that ken shamrock thing, where he gets all torqued up and loses focus somewhat
