I haven't seen the latest episode, was gonna watch replay tomorrow, but I think I can guess whose team wins the next fight
. Same thing happens to me with F1 all the time, gotta tune out all news and internet between the race and when I have time to watch it.
Anyway sounds like 90% or so think Matt Hughes will probably beat Matt Serra, and I'm in that camp too. BUT I also agree with the few that Serra is strong and not unskilled, so this is no cake walk for Hughes, it'll be a good fight but in the end I gotta go with the ex-champ's wrestling and GNP (I don't see him subbing Serra) over the new champ. It might even go the distance and be a decision
though I hope not cause that's not as fun. But it's probably for farmer Hughes.
See you all on the other side of UFC 77, am tuning out starting tomorrow til I get to watch UFC 77, late Sunday night I hope. Let's go Rich! (Gotta love a comeback and it would make for a great trilogy.)
