Hughes would win again. I don't see any way that Serra won that first fight. The only damage I can remember him doing was as the result of an accidental headbutt.

I have no interest in seeing these two fight again. Hughes is past his prime and the sport evolved beyond him. Serra was never good, still isn't good, and wouldn't even be worth mentioning if it wasn't for two highlight reel lucky punches he has been a part of. Spinning backfist from Shonie Carter, and his KO of GSP.

The only way I'd be interested is if Hughes could promise he will do nothing but slam Serra and ground and pound him. The last thing I need to see on a main card is two sub par boxers trying to knock each other out again.

I'd watch that fight again. But I really wish Serra would buckle down and hit the 155 weight class. He could be a contender there. Despite the innaccurate comment two or three post above, Serra is very good. He's not BJ, GSP, or Silva level of course, but is way better than average.
His fight with BJ several years ago was very competitive and I would like to see it again, despite pretty much knowing the outcome.

I definitely think Hughes won the first one, even with the accidental headbutt. If you pay close attention you can tell that headbutt made a big difference too, not only making Hughes very wary, but also giving Serra a lot of confidence. He has this smirk on his face like he is dominating Hughes, but the only thing he did was an accidental illegal move.

I think Hughes has lost that killer instinct he had to just slam and punish people so now all he has left to do is a lot of laying on top of people. I would love to see Hughes back to his former self, but not seeing it happening. As far as Serra, I think he is an average level fighter, and has had a few good fights, but he has never shown to me he can be an elite fighter. That win against Pierre was a fluke.

idk I like both the fighters the seem nice in person (I have met serra and talked to rich who seems to like hughes) But got a bad wrap on tuf I hate to see them fight again.

I think Hughes ( not very impressive at all though) won the first fight and the judges made the right choice. The only time serra really had him in any trouble was was with the unintitional headbutt. Hughes took him down got on top and pounded out a victory. Not very impressive infact down fight pathetic considering what he use to be but a win none the less.

IDK what will happen this time normaly I would go with Hughes but he always talks about wanting a KO victory so I thing he may try to stand and bang with serra in which case the odds are against him.

Not really interested in seeing them fight again; sure it was close, but regardless of what Serra says, he didn't do enough to win the fight in the eyes of the judges and many other fight fans the night of UFC 98.

That being said, it was a close fight. Serra had the opportunity to leave it all in the octagon but because he didn't he feels unfulfilled and needs a rematch.

The right hand was there all night, especially when Hughes was fighting south paw; all he had to do was step into his jab and lay that right hand -- IT WAS THERE.

Serra had two good fights in his career. The Penn one, and the GSP one. Other than that he has won and lost to average fighters. Maybe he's better at 155, but even there I don't see him competing beyond the role of a gatekeeper and even that is a stretch. I don't think he beats the Clay Guidas or Joe Stevensons who currently hold that role.

Thinking about it, it is really stupid of Serra to lobby for another fight with Hughes right away. Serra first and foremost should be looking to get a fight against an up and coming, but well known fighter. A fight that is new, and potentially exciting. I understand wanting to avenge a loss you don't consider fair, but do it down the line. If he fights and loses to Hughes again, it could be devastating to his career in the UFC.

Fully agree. That was one of the worst fights I have possibly ever seen.
