Hughes only chance at winning is if he can get GSP on his back. Good luck with that though, GSP is one refined motha****a!

I think its just to get him used to winning in the octagon again. If he goes straight into a fight against a tough apponent, he could think that he's not ready for a re-match or think that he doesn't stand a chance. If he decimates a nobody he'll think he's a wreckin ball headin straight for GSP.

I think it's about managing your good fighters. In the UFC and with the US audience it's essential to have a good record and not to go on a losing streak. With the fighters they want to keep, they can't put them into a really competitive fight right after a loss, because anything can happen, and two losses in a row is a huge question mark. One minute you're 'not human', and the next minute, according to 'those internets', you're the biggest can that ever walked the earth and couldn't take a paralyzed grandmother.

So it makes sense to let him have a tune-up fight, if only to pad his record out with another win.

Although, I, too, maybe stupidly, don't think this will be totally one-sided. I always liked Chirs Lytle.

Matt Hughes record is padded enough. All he does is beat cans...I've been through this a million times. Matt Hughes will never win the belt again. There are a couple guys who can/will destroy hughes. I dont think Hughes could take Diego, or Penn (only won the 2nd fight due to injury and was loosing hughely before) and obviously he cant handle GSP. Hughes will be number 4 until he retires. Fighting a can wont do anything but make matt hughes look worse. Plus, anything can happen. I hope he gets laid out via highlight fasion again so we can finially be rid of "the most dominant champ in ufc history" pfftt...Hes just a smaller version of Tito Ortiz...lay and gay!

he doesn't NEED one but it would sure be nice for him. chris lytle is a very talented fighter, and probably could have had the decision against matt serras foot stomping, zero damage, action. but matt hughes WILL win 99.99% for sure. it'll help the fans build confidence in hughes again
