I hope hughes beats his gay little french- canadian ass again. canadians suck.
I must admit that I was impressed with your reasoning. NOT.
I won't argue that Hughes is not a good fighter and has not had good fights in the past. Some of his body slams in his earlier fights are very impressive but he seems to lately not to be able to execute as well as before.
In addition, he has been tremendously successful, moreso than any other welterweight - you just have to look at his record - I think he's had 20 successful title defenses now but he's also been lucky as well (but that's part of MMA fighting too).
Carlos Newton choked him out with a triangle choke while Hughes had him pressed up against the top of the octogon but was knocked out when Hughes collapsed to the ground causing Newton' s head to smash into the ground. Hughes woke up first and won the fight.
Hughes is also very tough. BJ came close to a triangle choke in the 2nd round but Hughes managed to weather the storm. But I think the argument that people are presenting here is that his win did not seem impressive .... but nevertheless he still did win so you have to give him credit for that.
BTW I believe thatr BJ is Haiwaiian and I don't think French Canadians have a monopoloy on being gay. Personally, I'd like to be ther when you told GSP he's gay.
