I really want St.Pierre to take this one, and I think he can do it.
Hopefully if he wins the crowd won’t boo him in a show of their “American pride”. Its always so aggravating when a guy fights a great fight and wins only to have the crowd boo him for some stupid reason such as nationality.
Why don’t you tell us all how GSP is going to beat Hughes. I’d really like to hear it.
Decision, KO, TKO, Sub. He’s capable of ending that fight anywhere anyway. So is Hughes. Thats the thing, its a very even matchup.
You seem ready to give Hughes the W already. I think you’re mistaken.
The fact that Hughes tapped him out in the first round.
The fact that GSP could not put Penn away and Hughes did.
The fact that Hughes has put everyone away as champion with either a submission or ref stoppage with only two exceptions.
The fact that Huhges has beaten every single top contender, and many of them TWICE.
The fact that Hughes is FAR more experienced than GSP, 40 some fights to something like 15 for Pierre.
The fact that he looked sick standing in the audience and watching Hughes stop Penn (yea he wanted Penn again).
The fact that Matt Hughes seems to get better with almost every fight.
Yes, I dismiss GSP in this fight. He is going to lose badly.
Now tell me WHY you think GSP will win.
Because he’s a nice guy?
Come on tell me.
I said I hoped he would win and I thought he could do it, not that I was certain he would. And, again, I think he is capable of getting a sub, tko, or decision on hughes because he has demonstrated an ability to take hughes down, good striking, and a solid bjj game(With the exception of his foul up at the end of the first round of course)
In their first fight GSP was doing very well against Hughes when he underestimated his BJJ, it happens. Hughes underestimated Penn the first time they fought and got choked out pretty damn quickly.
Hughes may have finished off Penn the second time, but he looked like Hell to start off the fight. He was getting his ass handed to him. He also didn’t look so hot at the beginning of his 2nd fight with Trigg who GSP absolutely shit bombed. Now, he came back to win both fights and I enjoyed seeing it both times.
So I stand by my opinion that this is a very even fight and one I can’t wait to see.
