Excuses excuses, it sucks that Georges got a little low on some kicks but I doubt anybody seriously thinks it was a stratetegy. PLus they both looked like decent inside-thigh shots. Netiehr of them were right square in the crotch. Or "kicked int he balls" as Joe Rogan would say, had he been there (thankfully he wasn't).

The fact remains that Hughes altered his game plan so much that he defeated himself. Why in the world he thought he could stand up with Georges is a mystery. He was overconfident. You didn't see Sylvia trying to take Monson down--I hate Sylvia but you have to give him respect for playing to his sterngths. Hughes was up his own ass this fight attempting lazy grappling take-downs and hip tosses and trying to exchange shots with Georges.

Hughes-Pierre III will be awesome. In the meantime Georges will take Serra's head off, so at least he'll get one title defense before the big rematch.

All I can say is Wow. Georges not just won, he kicked Hughe's asss, beat the Sh-it out of him. That was awesome, and I'm a little shocked right now. I didn't think it was possible to beat Matt that bad.

I've NEVER seen Hughes beat up so badly ... It was so dominating that it was almost embarrassing ... he looked so outclassed and should probably forget about ever being champ again as long as St. Pierre is around ... wonder what he thinks of Canadians now!

Probably about the same...minus the nutshots of course.

Matt was really exposed in this fight. Hes no more than an exceptionally strong GnP fighter. I rolled my eyes as they talked about Matts "improved" standup. The guy I watched the fight with said it best. "Being improved doesnt mean it doesnt suck anymore." Georges was just too well rounded...we saw it in the first fight and again in this one, and we will see it again in the third fight.

I'm so glad we won't have to hear Hughes' cocky BS for a while. (but I'm sure he'll be back) TUF 4 really exposed him as an a-hole. GSP just has to avoid sinking to his level.
I wanted to see Matt Serra vs. Hughes but GSP will CRUSH Serra. Serra's only hope is to bear hug him the entire fight like he did in TUF 4 finale (yawn). How bad was the Silvia-Monson fight by the way??
