Hughes is going to barely win all three rounds and pick up a UD.

I dont know about that, when has Hughes ever been tired?? He might outstrike him but I doubt he'll tire him out

Matt Hughes is my favorite fighter, but holy cow why Diego? He just beat Kampmann and Thiago!!! This will be a very tough fight for the country boy.

I still think Hughes can win..... although I thought he could beat BJ too

Youre right, Hughes does have great cardio, but he is getting older and I don't think he can keep the pace of Sanchez. If Hughes isn't able to finish him I see Sanchez getting the decision by overwhelming Hughes, and he is very hard to finish (Diego). But it will be a good fight...not saying it's a missmatch at all.

Diego by mean stare. This fight doesn't make much sense. Diego has been building momentum against solid contenders in Thiago and Kampmann, while Hughes seems to be on a decline. Not that I'm writing Hughes off, this could easily go either way. I'll pick Diego to win at the moment.

2. Glover Teixeira
3. Demian Maia

i hope hughes finishes this fight.the only thing i doubt about hughes is his chin. i would love to see him tap out "the dream"....i absolutely hate that guy!

Proper preparation + a split second hesitation = total domination.

Hughes is too old, Sanchez should be able to out-gatekeeper him to a victory and then Hughes can start planningn his retirement.
