I think Matt has major 'cojones'...And is/was champ material as opposed to say...Rich Franklin.
I don't think he's underrated and he has reigned supreme so far, but I think his time is up.
GSP is pretty sick, and I have a feeling, will win this fight. His striking is great, he has fantastaic take-down ability. He's obviously in terrific shape...But best of all....His confidence.
I think it's very difficult as a champ to get fired up and it looks like Hughes doesn't have that fire he should or needs. Where GSP looks excited on his way to the ring and I hope he takes it...He's young and has more then one gameplan.
Hughes has impressed me on several occasions...Not so much his last demonstration, but I think he needs a loss to get the spark back. He has literally said in the past he has NO reason to fight GSP, so how can he get fired up for it? GSP is going to be gunning for him soo hard. What an exciting match up!
