so much for hughes taking on anderson silva

Ok, there have been alot of talks in the past about matt hughes moving up a weight class to possibly take on anderson silva, and alot of people were kinda on the fence about who would win. After that devasting loss to GSP, does anyone still think that he would win against anderson silva???? How do you think GSP would do against anderson silva????

I personally think that anderson would pick apart hughes with his stand up probably even faster than GSP, and i would love to see GSP beat anderson silva but i really dunno if his stand up is as good.

Discuss

(oh and btw could anyone give me a site link to the hughes and GSP fight i wanna see hughes get rocked again lol)

Anderson Silva and GSP are two completely different fighters! Just because Matt Hughes got picked apart by GSP doesn't mean he'll get dominated by Anderson Silva! That's something we'll have to see if or when they actually fight!

You forget that this isn't just some brutal sport where everyones out to kill each other. Its much more like a game of physical chess.-looney liam

Matt Hughes will mercifully avoid Anderson Silva at this point ... that would be a very ugly fight for Matt, he'd get his face re-arranged like Franklin

Ever since I heard that Matt Hughes wanted to fight him, I knew he'd lose. Anderson Silva is on a different level than Matt. If Matt tried to stand up with Anderson he'd be destroyed instantly. If he took it to the ground he might have a little chance, but not much.

I think that anderson would need a grand total of 25 seconds to knock matts head clean off. but i also think hughes woudl take him down rather easily as newton did and horn did without much trouble. i think this is a toss up.
