UFC 68 - Upset?

I thought I would throw this one out to the board and see if anyone agrees with me.

Hughes is ripe for an upset and Lytle could do it. I think Lytle is the most probable of the big 3 fights to pull of an upset. Matt is coming near the end of his career, and is probably a little unmotivated for this fight. Chris, however, probably has more motivation that anyone has ever had. He thought he got robber in the TUF 4 finale, and now has a chance against the former champ, I highly doubt anyone has been more motivated in the history of MMA.

I love Jason MacDonald (he's my hometown boy, representing E-town) but I think Franklin is too big for him physically. And same thing with Sylvia/Couture.

A lot of these points have been made before, but not sure if anyone has stated they think Chris is going to take Matt. Call it instinct or lunacy (haha) but I think this is going to happen.

Are you kidding? Lytle has the LEAST chances of all to pull out an upset.

The fights probably going to start out standing for maybe a minute then hughes will slam him down and probably finish it with a TKO, Vintage Hughes.

Yea Matt comes out very motivated after his losses. I am actually a little worried Lytle gets seriously hurt. Seriously though Lytle doesent have the skills to beat Matt. Maybe if they put on boxing gloves and were in a ring. If Matt Serra can control Lytle along the cage he should be scared to death of what Hughes could do to him.

Lytle isnt bad but fighting Hughes after a loss isnt a good matchup for anyone. Hughes by submission after some serious ground and pound in RD1.

Yes sorry but Hughes is going to be up for this and Lytle will struggle to cope with him.

Matts not even 35 yet, i think he still has some fights left in him. You think after getting dominated then having a chance to be back into contendership isnt motivation? he wants his rubber match with Georges St. Pierre and i feel sorry for Chris Lytle who very well may get the beating of his life. then shortly after Hughes will regain his title.

Cmon... the dude couldn't even beat Matt Serra.

I'd say Couture has the best chance at pulling the upset, or maybe Jason Lambert.

Lol Lytle has the smallest chance of pulling off an upset than anyone else competing in ufc 68. Hughes is coming off a loss so he will be motivated and very dangerous. He will probably go back to his old ways of GNP and not try to strike with better strikers. Lytle is finished!

I can appreciate your opinion but fortunately it is only your opinion. Matt is getting closer to retirement but he is still not ready just yet. I believe he still has a few good years left at least. He is more likely not to allow an upset because of how disappointed he has been in himself with the lack of performance over GSP. His next time in the octagon I'm sure will be his chance for some redemption. Matt will dominate if he keeps his head in the game.
