Hughes is better at wrestling and submissions than him and would own him on the mat. Diego is the third best wrestler in that division (1=Hughes;2=Fitch). Diego would also have his ass handed to him by GSP future WW champion.
He matches up good with hughes. Hughes only way to win is take downs and keep top position. If he is on his back he is screwed. Diego is an expert from recovering from his back and turning it around. If Hughes takes him down which he obviously will cause his stand up isnt very good, Diego has a very good chance of turning it around on him. Im not saying he will dominate hughes but he definetly has a better chance against him. GSP would kill him though and I think he is gonna be the champ after the next ppv.
