Personally, I couldn't wait for Georges St. Pierre to lay the smack down on Hughes, but I for one am stoked about Hughes now fighting BJ Penn. This substitiution will be no disappointment. The only let down is that Hughes would've lost to GSP, but now he's going to win by beating BJ Penn. Hughes was sooooo lucky to sneak that arm bar on GSP after being smacked all over the octagon. Quite similarily, BJ was lucky to pull off that choke on Hughes after being smacked all over the octagon.

Did you even watch the first Hughes vs. Penn fight? Penn totally dominated Matt from start to finish in fact I don't think Matt landed one single strike or scored any points whatsoever for the whole fight. BJ was whoopoing his ass from start to finish. You should probably watch a fight before you make comments on it because that particular comment could not be more false...seriously...not trying to be rude or anything but it's true.

There is no way that this is going to be an easy fight for Hughes! GSP beat Penn by decision! Afterwards GSP had to go to the hospital while BJ went to the bar! If Hughes does win he will be a bloody mess from Penn smacking him around the octagon!

A BJJ black belt in less than 3 years? Now I see where he got that nickname!

I thought Hughes underestimated Penn last time, I predict a war next month. Too close to call in my book

Yes, BJ Penn is an animal, and I believe the belt will go back to Penn. Granted, Hughes is a GREAT athelete, and he has some amazing strength, he's quick, and has good take down skills, he is also improving on his ground game, but I see Penn for the with. Man, It's gonna be a narly battle.

I cant wait. GSP will get another shot.
