The guys who have the best shot at Hughes are Penn and GSP, maybe Din Thomas, Shonie, or Matt Serra, whichever one wins TUF 4, but Hughes is gonna be hard to bet against from here on out.
I'd like to see Diego Sanchez fight Hughes soon, if only to give Nightmare a loss and fire him up to work on his skills. He's talented kid, and I think we'll be seeing his name for years to come.

Now onto the rib thing. If it happened or not, until we see some sort of medical report is still up in the air. But let's consider that he did suffer from that injury. Sure it would effect his performance in the ring. However, people are taking that into account like Hughes' had absolutely nothing to do with that. Ribs just don't seperate themselves on their own.

Someone doesn't seperate their ribs while they're walking down the street, or doing anything else mundane or routine like reading the newspaper, taking out the trash or squatting on the toilet. It takes some sort of torque or pressure on your core to cause that injury to happen. Has anyone honestly thought for a moment what type of strains doing a split-legged sprawl while having an aggressive and strong world-class fighter trying to put your back to the canvas for an extended period of time will create on your core? Nope... No one has.

Yeah, I'll accept that he was injured. However, I will honestly and fairly consider that the injury just didn't happen by itself.

I agree with you and I like the way you worded that. We are some of the few that think it was a good win for hughes but I am glad to see someone shares my opinion on the whole rib thing.
