Yea, because you know exactly what would happened in the fight moldy??? I think hughes said it best, when he said something to the effect of " I know he won the first 2 rounds, but that meant I had 3 left ". Considering Hughes is known to have one of the best cardio in the UFC, and gone 5 rounds before(I can't think of BJ going 5 rounds, but I could be wrong). Bj is also known to not have the best cardio. I am kind of sick of people saying "Bj would have won if he didn't get hurt", and "GSP would of won if he didn't tap ", fact is they lost, plain and simple, and no one knows what would of happened.
I will say, as a Matt hughes fan (yes I admit that), that it was not looking good for Matt at all, and Penn was demonstrating how awesome his skills are, but I think if matt could of held on for round 3, that he would of taken over in 4, and possible won in the 5th, but that is all up to speculation. If Hughes fights Penn again, I would bet on Penn if he was 100% fit, but if he is not, which usually is the case, my money is on Hughes. I am really suprised Hughes has lasted this long considering that training is not his life, whereas alot of fighters don't do anything but train.
