Serra isn't going to beat Hughes he dosn't have the skills to do it. Who subs Hughes? GSP and Penn thats it he will take Serra down at will and pound him out. Other then maybe a big bomb Hughes wins.

I was once a big Hughes fan and still am a little not because he has lost 2\3 but because he stopped training for fights. He stopped lifting training and being that big dominate WW that got him to the top. To much family, book deals and new gym stuff keeping him out of training. If he comes in like he once did I'll cheer for him I would like to see him go out in good fashion.



Or is that the sport evolved and just being a good wrestler doesn't cut it anymore. Hughes trained his balls off for UFC 79.....GSP manhandled him.....and I'm not exaggerating, looked like a high school kid beating up a 6th grader........outclassed.com ! Then Alves almost kills him.......but yeah if he just trained harder......LOL

i wish the topic title ended after "retiring"





I hope Hughes destroys Serra. I don't really like either, but I can't stand Matt Serra.

Win or lose I dont see serra retiring I think the article mentioned something about him working on a contract. but whatever I dont like either but I prefer Hughes and although I dont ever recall cheering for matt hughes in any single one of his fights, I still would like to see him leave on top. not leaving on 3 straight losses especially witht he last 2 being as brutal. Serra's a loser tho this is basically diminished skills vs no skills and ill take hughes, serra has never been one to finish fights and its pretty difficult to submit hughes from the bottom which is what I think serra's gameplan is, hughes has fought guys with way better guards than serra this one should be hughes by decision. serra has been inactive for too long and doing more talking than fighting
