Well, the rubber match between GSP and Hughes won't take place at UFC 69 as Dana White first suggested. Reason, Matt Hughes isn't ready to fight GSP yet.

“I’m hearing word back that [Matt] Hughes might want to wait,” White told the press Wednesday following the highly-successful UFC Fight Night, held at the Marine Corps Air Station Miramar in San Diego, California.
In the last week, the word has become more definitive.
“After discussing the future with Matt, it was agreed that it would be in his best interests to take a fight in between a rematch with St. Pierre,” Hughes’ longtime manager Monte Cox said this morning. “This way, he would have more time to train specific skills that would give him a better chance at winning back the title.”
“We’re going to Montreal in April no matter what,” reinforced White of the promotion’s Northern debut, suggesting last week that Hughes could match up with undefeated welterweight contender Diego Sanchez next."
So who fights GSP next? Serra?? LOL... that will be more like practice for GSP. You can't really blame Hughes for not wanting to fight GSP for the belt yet. He got his ass handed to him and he wants to train harder and maybe come in with a game plan this time around.
