Should Hughes drop if he does lose to Georges?

Lets just say for the sake of it that Hughes loses to Pierre at bad intentions. Do you think or feel that Hughes should drop to the bottom of the ladder from the lost just like pierre did when he lost to Hughes the first time? Now i know Hughes has did allot in his career as champ and big victories, gracie etc.

But in my opinion i feel that if he does lose, and thats a HUGE...if. That Hughes should not a rematch right away but instead he has to work his way up the ladder like some of the other UFC guys.

Remember this is all hypethically speaking if Pierre did win, Whats your opinion on this? Because i know there is allot of you out there that would like to see Hughes Vs Pierre 3 take place pretty much the next time around. Just like what happen with Randy and Chuck.

It would be nice to see Hughes have to take on some other contenders before he got another title shot. We all know that he has been a great champion, but lets see if he can rise to the top again.

he might have to beat one decent guy but he has earned the right to be at the top and get another shot right away

Ya Hughes would defenitly get a rematch, but he'd probably have to fight someone like Nick Diaz or someone like that.

What is it that is going to be on your mind when you're on your death bed? Will it be the tedious years of 9 to 5, or the memory of some great acheivement. Maybe a moment you stood in glory to the applause of millions.

Yea, he only needs to win 1 fight to get a rematch. They really made GSP take the long route before getting back to the finals, but the experience was probably good for him, and they had a decent reason.

GSP fought Hughes for the interim belt and its arguable that he had the shot before he really deserved it. So now he has to go back to the drawing board and climb back up. Plus they brought in Mayhem Miller who was a top ranked Welterweight, but they couldn't just give him a title shot; so GSP got the fight. Sherk is no chump and he needs someone to fight so GSP got that. Then there was the return of BJ penn and there was no question that he deserved a shot at matt hughes. Unfortunately so did GSP and with the possibility of Hugheslosing his title to either and the prospect of millions of dollars from a Gracie fight; it made sense to force GSP to face Penn for number 1 contendership. Finally with GSP straining his groin and Penn being smited by Hughes God in the form of a broken ribs; GSP will finally get his rematch against Hughes for the Title. Sure he got shafted; but it will make this fight all the sweeter. I don't think someone could have written a better script for GSP's return to the top.

Oh I am sure there would be a rematch, but I think whoever wins in TUF is in line first. So I don't know how that would workout.
