Hughes may out work Diego, but I'm almost 100% confident that he won't submit him. Diego keeps a high pace, and doesn't quit. Hughes shouldn't even attempt any submissions. He needs to use all of his energy to just hold Diego down. Having a strong offense on the ground just gives Sanchez room to create scrambles.
Hughes is passed his prime, that is certain. He's a lot slower now, and his chin has become suspect. I actually think that Diego will win by technical knock out standing. Diego may not have the best stand up, but he is aggressive with some power, and he has a great chin and recovery time. Hughes should be looking for the take down at all times during this fight.
This should be a fun fight.
