i'm not gonna point out kicks, punches, ground techniques or anything. his most valuable asset in that fight was much more general. it was his explosiveness. he seemed exponentially faster than hughes. he moved around alot, threw swift kicks and punches, and exploded in and out of matt's range.

his quickness was definitely a key in winning that fight.

Nailed it on the head. His explosiveness with moving in and out of matt's range. That was so key.

I think Hughes said that GSP's movement in the ring (popping in and out of striking/shooting range) made the biggest difference in the fight.

Edit: yeah, as everyone else is saying.

The fact that he is just better then Matt. Stronger, more well rounded, better striker, better athlete, better GNP, better or equal wrestling. GSP is just better then Hughes.

True that! Plus GSP had a good takedown defense. If you want to beat Matt Hughes, you have to keep him standing.

Definetly his athleticism was a huge plus. But the leg kicks really hurt Hughes. Before he almost got knocked out at the end of the first round, he had pretty much lost the ability to put any power into his shoots. From that point on GSP just picked him apart.

I am a HUGE Hughes fan. I will say that GSP was just more confident. he has incredible speed and power. He plan and technique worked that night. I think the next time they meet GSP will have a much different fight on his hands.
I strongly feel that Hughes has more heart than GSP and heart wins fights not cockiness which is one reason Hughes lost. GSP doesn't have the heart of Hughes and if you ask me he is kind of tender. Don't get me wrong he is the ultimate fighter right now and will make a great champ but he shouldn't get too use to the belt.

Todays kind of man(in general, not all, but just about all) compared to the men lets say 50-60 years ago are much weaker and sensitive. The men today are cry babies and lack courage and heart. We have become a society of metrosexual pusses and Hughes has the mentality, heart and hard work ethic of the men long gone from the past. He is what America use to be like. Honest hard working Christians who cares about his family and other people. I hope Hughes beats GSP's a** and brings pride back to America.

Sorry for the rant and I am sure I will hear about it.

You sure as hell will. I will spare you, because others will do that.

Please, no offence or anything, but you sound like you just ****ing watched a UFC commercial or Dana White just brainwashed your ass. Once again, no offence, but you can't honestly believe all that crap you just said. You are implying that GSP has no heart and is a puss. Please don't disrespect GSP. I hate to flame, but I am sorry that GSP whooped your beloved Matt Hughes' ass and shattered your dreams of the posterboy winning.

Hey, what do you know. I lied.
