I can't wait to see Hughes beat the living hell out of Matt Serra.

He should beat the shit out of Serra and then retire with a win. I love me some Matt Hughes.

I am 100% with you. Hughes is living for 1 more fight. Serra is the victim.

Matt Hughes said that his wife told him not to stop until Serra's blood was all over the mat. Now that is hilarious.

I don't see that happening, well maybe Serra gets cut and there'll be some blood, but I see Serra retiring Hughes with a nasty (T)KO.

Serra loved the roll of 'villian' against GSP, he will relish the thought of beating Hughes in his hometown.

Man im loving this, we havent had a grudge match like this since Ortiz Vs Shamrock, we were due for one of these.

You have to be kidding me.

In the past 7 years, Serra has one win by KO and one win by submission. Serra KOed GSP with a very lucky spinning back fist. I would have to so that it was the luckiest knockout in UFC history. The submission win was against Kelly Dullanty in 2002.

Now you expect Serra to KO Hughes. NEVER!

Except it wasn't a spinning backfist he KOed GSP with, and far from "lucky". He landed a hit, rocked GSP with it and finished him. He dropped Penn with a punch too just wasn't able to finish him after that.
Do I think his win against GSP was an upset win? yes. was it Lucky? no.

Hughes isn't as good as he used to be. Serra's stand up is pretty solid and he hits hard. He may not have the best foot work or head movement, but compared to Hughes his stand up is ahead alot.
Serra has been subbed 0 times during his whole career, defensively his BJJ is one of the best in UFC, offensively its pretty average because he isn't the best wrestler around which helps with the positioning alot. Its still good enough to sub or atlest sweep Hughes if Hughes gets a take down

So yeah back to my prediction; Serra by (T)KO. If Hughes wins it'll be by close 29-28 decision.

Actually, Penn slipped, it wasn't the punch that knocked him down.

But, Serra does hit hard, but that's not going to matter, since Serra's takedown defense sucks and Hughes will get him down and pwn him on the ground. Hughes by beatdown, second fight with Newton style.

Thats true. and overall I would have wanted Serra to make his move sooner than this. I and alot of others would want Serra to move back down to LW already because thats really his thing. Guys in WW are too big to him and got serious reach advantage. He can and will still clock wins there but he would be more serious contender in LW. Also if he plans to go for GSP vs. Serra 3 he could have done couple other fights before this Hughes fight already, too long wait.

They can and will rehype it when time is closer, but like you I can't get too hyped up about something that is about half a year away.

Ok .. you are right. I just watched the replay and it was an overhand right that caught GSP.

Yeah ... Hughes isnt as good as he used to be but he has one good fight left in him. Trust me, Hughes will be ready for this fight.

Serra's BJJ might be good but Hughes has fought better. If Hughes gets Serra in an armbar like he did against Gracie, Serra will tap.

In order to beat Hughes, Serra will have to put him in a coma. Hughes will not stop.
