Maybe, I can't really say. I don't like GSP too much, its hard to tell.
Is he trying to get in Matts head? Or is he still intimidated?

I guess we will see.

Yeah, sometimes I think Royce is a classy guy, but sometimes he seemed to enjoy inflicting pain even when the ref tried to stop the contest ... like when he kept trying to break Jason Deluca's arm or when he kept choking that French guy when he was tapping with both hands ...

Given a couple of warm ups or tomato cans as you might say, he would have done better. I still dont think he could have won but it would have been closer.

Will that samething every happen to Matt - No, Matt is a student of MMA, look how he improved since he got be by BJ. I also dont think Matt will retier and then come back.
I dont think It will change mma but I think It will help it evolve.

That was because he got skrewed when someone tapped and the ref didn't notice, so he started making sure they noticed.

That's true, didn't Ken Shamrock deny that he tapped after his first fight even though you could see him doing it in the replay?

I don't think anyone can get into Matt's head. But Matt shure can get into the other fighters head.

Oh I don't know about that, I think BJ was pretty well in his head.

I think if anything the fact that GSP idolizes Matt and was soo intimidated the first time they fought is going to skrew him.

Yeah, he's a cool customer, tons of experience and GSP already admitted he was intimidated in the first fight so Matt could be in his head big time, I think that could be his downfall, but 5 days out of the week I'd still pick GSP. He is a good example of the new wave of fighter that could send Hughes packing,
