If Matt Hughes was in Sera's position he would consider doing the same thing.

Yeah its an asshole move, but Matt Sera hates Matt Hughes, why would he play nice. I'm an asshole to people I hate.

Exactly. I have no doubt in my mind Hughes would have done the same. If he has the power to do it then why not? Regardless if they fight each other now it would have to eventually happen no? I don't see the big deal

the point is that its sapose to be team serra vs team hughes.

I agree serra is a better coach so he should put his guys against them insted of each other. He is just doing this to piss of hughes. Its also a cowardly.

and no I dont think hughes would have done the same thing in serra's position.

Funny Nobody seemed to have a problem when jens was complaining about the same thing.

If its supposed to be hughes vs serra.. maybe hughes needs some more team mates for this round? about 4 more will do!

Serras gonna have serra vs serra guys.. either way.. having mac fight tommy is the best thing serra could do.

Also, if you don't think Hughes would have done the same thing.. LOL.. please

What exactly are talking about.. you are the one that has a problem with Serra.. no one here has a problem with Hughes disliking Mac Vs Tommy

I don't think it really matters that much. Half of Serra's fighters would beat Tommy anyway. Why not have Mac do it for them? Coaches are supposed to help there guys. Serra is doing the right thing here for his team. Of course he'd rather see his guys in the finals.

Go Serra...
exactly man.

serra's just playin the game. if roles were reversed, hughes would probably do the same thing.

So, Serra is a asshole cause he wants one of his guys to win it all? Hughes isn't cause he would do the same? If you truly believe that Hughes wouldn't we have been watching different shows.

You can't have your cake and eat it to.

MY FIVE

1. George St. Pierre
2. Anderson Silva
3. Fedor Emelianenko
4. Don Frye
5. Kenny Florian

I think Dana is gonna make Serra give a fighter or two to Hughes team to even it out. Still make Matt and Speer fight though!

good for serra bad for the finale

The most solid advice I can give to anyone who fights BJ Penn is...do not motivate the guy. Lets face it, BJ although talented, is naturally lazy. Your job is to NOT convince him to step on that treadmill.
