Lolz @ Avatar. I'd say he looks more like a cabbage patch kid...lolz.

This is gonna be a fun fight I think. Renzo is a scrappy fighter and I hope he gets the take down.

I love Renzo and I'll always cheer for him but Hughes has been in there with so many solid Jiu-Jitsu fighters and come out on top.

Hughes is just so good at controlling fighters and neutralising their strengths, I just don't think Renzo will be able to mount ay sort of offense, add the fact that both are completely useless strikers and this could make for an extremely boring matchup. I hope not though.

Gotta go with my head though and say Hughes get's a boring decsion.

Yeah, sadly I know that Captain Conservative will probobly lay ontop of Renzo the whole time...That's why I didn't buy UFC 98, and that's why I'm not buying 112.
Well that's a horrible way to look at it, I mean.. seriously - get a few buddies together, go down to a bar or do something because the card is worth seeing and you never know what is going to happen on fight night.

Either way, I see Hughes taking it.. most certainly.

The only chance Renzo has is by pulling off a submission from his guard. And how likely is that against a guy like Matt Hughes, one of the best at controlling somebody from top position? Not very.

Matt Hughes by tedious unanimous decision. I'll be cheering for Renzo though.

Think this is the most respectful any fighter has been with Hughes and vice versa...lolz! This fight is for Hughes to win all the way.

BUT...for some reason I think Renzo can do it.

Hughes beat Almeida (2000 Abu Dhabi), Serra (student), and Royce(cousin.)

Renzo beat Hugh's coach (Miletech.)

- Carlos Newton
- Pat Miletech
- Frank Shamrock

All past champions of course at the tail end of their careers, but that can't be a fluke can it. Hahah...if the stars aligned Renzo might be able to pull it off.

TViddy, Because the crowds loved GSP vs HArdy:thumb02: Really though Hughes works from the top and can see him hamburgering Renzo's face. Renzo will be fighting for the family pride so It might be a interesting fight for those who like wrestling vs BJJ at the top level, myself included.
