Hughes by poundage for 3 rounds. Hughes will get a win before retiring and Matt Serra will *hopefully* go away.

I simply emailed his academy manager and requested an autograph. He said sure that he'd even provide the pics to just send a self addressed stamped envelope to him. Very nice guy. The autographs say "Tony, all my best" and signed, very cool of the guy.

Indeed, he seems to be a nice guy, but there's a lot of hate against him, just because he knocked GSP out and bragged about it, and got no credit.

I'm going with the Terra on this one, I've never been a fan of Hughes, even back in the day when he was a force, now hes a shadow of his former self.

A lot of people are saying how fired up Hughes is going to be for this fight, I think a lot of people are forgetting just how much Serra hates Hughes, and the opportunity to retire him? Serra is going to be determined like never before.

I see Serra controlling the stand-up, Serra's stand-up isint that technically good, but stand-up was never Hughes strength, and Serra has power in his hands, so yea Serra has the advantage there for me.

I think Serra's jits is good enough to sub Hughes, or at least to stop Hughes G n P attempts.

I think that if Hughes was in his prime, he'd take this fight, but he aint and I don't think he has it in him to beat Serra now, even with all the hate Hughes has for Serra, I don't think he'll be celebrating when all is said and done

Serra by UD or tko/sub R2

I can't predict the winner, but I do think it'll be by decision and not submission or TKO.

I don't know. Hughes is on his way down and Serra was never a great fighter. Makes it even harder since both got dominated by GSP in their last fights with barely doing anything.
