disappointing but good

Just finished watching the PPV. BJ dominated but unfortunately was lacking in the cardio area. I thinkj Dana owes him another shot. A rubber match if you will. BJ is the better fighter and is the only one to really dominate Matt Hughes.

It was a good victory for Hughes, but I can't wait to see GSP kick his ass!! Somebody needs to. Now, normally I am a big fan of Hughes, but I think for anything to progress change must occur. I feel my countryman GSP is he man for the job. GSP said, "...his performance didn't impress me." and I am of the same school of thought. Cheers Matt, but your days are numbered!!!

Hughes v Penn

Can anyone give any details on the Hughes Penn fight. I read Hughes won by TKO in the 3rd round but would like to know if he totally dominated or if Penn at least gave him a good fight. Thanks

GSP is a schmuck!

GSP is an idiot. What kind of fool insults the champ who just defened his title and then tries to be cool with him afterwards. BJ dominated GSP and Hughes, but unfortunately was not in the best condition for either fight. Either way, if Hughes beats GSP or visa versa then BJ should get another shot, only because he dominated Hughes for most of the fight.

Someone needs to kick his ass? Excuse me? What is this armchair warrior time? Matt Hughes works hard to be champion and retain that belt, I think he deserves credit for it.

As such, BJ Penn did NOT come in the best shape of his life, as he claimed he was going to, and he suffered for it. So I have no real respect for him. He claimed to be 'the champion' after NOT losing the belt, yet he comes into the fight in bad shape, as usual, and as usual he talks a lot of trash before the fight.

Personally I don't think he dominated at all, I think the fight was a seesaw battle back and forth. Sure Matt Hughes has ****** in his so called invincible armour, after all he's human, but give credit where it's due, and pay the man respect. He fights anyone at anytime, and does not cry. For the most part he is a class act, and a deserving champion.

If anyone wants to step up and try to take his belt, he's willing and able to defend it. GSP has already tried and been beaten, and now he wants to try him again. I hope he makes the most of his chance. Matt Hughes will.

Good luck to the better man. The same as in this fight with Penn.

Guess who won? The better man. Hughes.

Penn dominated St. Pierre? What the hell were you watching? St. Pierre and Penn had a great fight with St. Pierre getting the better of Penn thus winning the split decision.
