would be a good fight if Matt wants it.

I honestly found it insulting to the sport, his opponent and himself when Alves was 8 pounds overweight.

I just want him to move up to MW already and stop trying to be the biggest fish in the pond when it doesnt even help vs the wrestlers anyways.

id like to see him just cut down on some of his weight training and walk around a bit smaller.

he was actually just 3lbs overweight for that fight, fought at a catchweight for 174lbs.

While we're on topic, I would pay damn good money to see hughes fight diaz. Diaz wants a top guy, Hughes wants a title run. Perfect fight imo.

RIP Jordan Corder. Watch over me from above brother.

Yes. Prefect matchup. Winner would get another fight against top 3 guy for a possible title fight. Makes sense.

Way more than 2 guys can beat Hughes. GSP, Kos, Fitch, Shields, and Alves are givens. I don't know why you think Kos would get outgrappled by Hughes, I think their wrestling is about the same level but Kos is younger, stronger, faster so he has the edge there as well as a large edge standing.

Hughes stand up has improved, I'll give him that but let's not forget how bad it was. Even in it's improved state it still lags badly compared to the rest of the division. Hughes is not terrible, his win over Almeida was impressive but he is definitely not top 5 so a title shot SHOULD be out of the question. I say "should" because the UFC knows he is a draw so if he peeled off one more win it wouldn't shock me to see them give him another shot even though I think it would be a complete waste of time.

Naa. What can Hughes do against the upper tier? GSP, Kos, Alves and Fitch will all crush him in his current state.

Really though, is it just me or does Hughes look like he has less and less muscle mass every time he fights?

No Hughes does not have another run in him. Sorry to say. He will never beat GSP again much less the other recent contenders.

Everybody good, plenty of slaves for my robot colony?

If he is matched up against other top guys in the division like Fitch or Koscheck, BTW, why has he never fought them before? Dana afraid of a snoozefest? None of these 3 have ever fought eachother, yet they are all top guys in the division and have been for some time!
