I been reading these forums for a long time now and finally decided to register hehe. Georges is my #1 favorite fighter and the reason why I am picking him over hughes this time is not because i want him to win or that he is my favorite it's because he will be much better this time around and prepared. Here is why.
When BJ beat hughes and took the belt, ever since then, hughes become 10x more stronger and better at MMA. He even stated this before, that the lost against PJ helped him in a way , made him a better fighter because of it.
Well in my opinion the same thing happened with Goerges. He took his first lost against one of his idols and since then he has became 10x more stronger too! He knows who he is stepping in the octagon with this time ......not just some guy he looked up to but a enemy, a guy he knows he can beat and has "His" belt.
Of course this is no fact just my opinion but when you watch the interviews about him and pierre, Hughes he talks and treats Georges like your typical ufc fighter that he beat before and nothing more. That will be hughes weak spot when he realizes how much stronger George has became in 2 years since there last fight.
I think it will be a good match , can go both ways really but I see Hughes under estimating Georges in a huge way going into this fight. He waited 2 years for this fight , and also knows that if he does not win , he is looking at another 2 years, maybe less to get that shot again. 2 years is a very long time to wait, Georges stated that before and he does not want to go through that wait again!
By the way, hello everyone .
