when Matt won over Bj i wasent impressed by Matt's performance either...

Bj pwned him the first two rounds... but bj gassed... and that was Matt's only way out...

BJ seperated his ribs on a takedown, you cant fight if you can't breath.

first you have it, then you lose it, that's it that's my theory

should have lost Hughes vs. Trigg 2?

Were we watching the same fight? Trigg nailed him in the nuts and noticed the ref didnt see it and took advantage of that which is cheap and Matt Hughes still came back with a brilliant slam then shortly after finishing him off..i dont care how much you dislike Hughes, he did deserve that win.

Now, at UFC 65..different story, sure there were a few nut kickers but Georges would have won anyways. I'm more of a Matt Hughes fan but im not gonna make excuses for him, props to Georges St. Pierre for an excellent performance. Hopefully they meet again for the final time, it will be interesting indeed.

GSP dominates hughes...

gsp completely dominated the fight. even when hughes got in close he couldnt control gsp even thought he is very strong. A Brazilian and now Canadian have taken American belts.. Are they gonna stop watching now?? no im jk but thats for the fans that were chanting USA during the fight... looks like the ones chanting GSP knew it was goin down

Congrats to GSP

Without delving into character analyses that others have in this thread, I can honestly say that was an excellent performance by "Rush".

I am disappointed that people are so focused on those two unintentional groin strikes. Realistically, as has been said before Hughes could have had twenty minutes or twenty hours to recover, so if he wasn't ready to fight he should have waited. St. Pierre even started kicking with his right leg to avoid this occurring again, so it's my belief that this was not intentional, nor used as a "tool" to win the fight.

Talking about the fight, he was beaten by a faster, equally powerful, and more focused fighter.

I like both Hughes and St. Pierre. Both come from a working class background and have used their prodigious physical talents and hard work to gain success. Both have fought through adversity to get where they are.

My only negative thing to say about Matt Hughes, is that next time they fight, maybe he shouldn't concentrate on smiling at St. Pierre so much after St. Pierre gives him a good shot. Jason "Mayhem" Miller did the same thing and ended up with a kick to the face. Really, it seems to further motivate St. Pierre.

Hughes is a future hall-of-famer and legend in UFC. St. Pierre is now the "next one". I am sure barring complacency, he will successfully defend his title with authority and equal Hughes in his run of title defences.

There will be a rubber match between the two, and I strongly believe that St. Pierre will triumph over Hughes again. Maybe not in the same way, but ultimately, he worked so hard to get where he is, and I think he won't forget how hard it was to get there anytime soon.

Next one is Liddell vs. Ortiz. I'm pre-rooting for Liddell.

Who really cares what nationality the title holders are? As long as they put in a good performance and clearly won...it shouldn't matter where they are from. Sheesh, talk about petty.
