this is a hard pick and i hope a good fight. i do not like matt hughes but i respect but i have to go with matt serra. this fight could go anywhere or have anything happen. i think serra is going to come out bangin like he did against gsp and test hughes stand up compared to his. and they really want to just punch each other in the face.

I think Hughes will overpower him and get a stoppage in the 2nd.

But what if it's a draw?

Hughes by 4th round tapout. He'll wear Serra down early on then take over in the middle rounds before finally choking him out.

i like serra a lot, and he seems to be a genuine dude, but hughes is sooo strong, and im guessing hes hungry again so that spells bad news for serra. then again if hughes thinks he can just walk all over serra like gsp did he may be in for a rude awakening.

I voted Serra but this fight will be crazy close that I wont be putting any money on it. Hell, I might end up picking Hughes when the pay-per-view comes around.

But the way I see it is Serra is just the all around fighter. He's better on the ground (talking BJJ, obviously) he has better striking, but Hughes has amazing wrestling and is really, really strong. I don't see Serra tapping Hughes out unless Serra can hurt Hughes with strikes first, because Hughes is just so strong. I can, however see Serra getting a TKO by either boxing or by some ground and pound if he can hold Hughes down.

If Hughes gets Serra down a lot in the fight and makes Serra work from the bottom and tires Serra out, I could see Hughes getting the TKO. Or pound and/or lay and pray (control) Serra for five rounds thus getting the UD. Boring ...

Matt Hughes easily. Serra catches one guy with a lucky punch and finishes him and all of a sudden he's a fantastic welterweight and is going to beat Matt Hughes. Hughes is gonna throw him around and smash his face in.

Hughes will win this, Hughes can survive against Penn on the ground so he will do just fine against Serra (penn only subbed Matt first fight cuz that huge right hand) I dont see Serra Ko'ing Hughes on the feet but anything can happen I guess.

Matt Hughes by Unanimous Decision...

He won't submit Serra of course. He won't KO him from the feet. So I think he does what he does best and takes it to the ground every round and just throws elbows and punches for 5 rounds. I think he could stop him if he makes Matt go limp but it's safer to go with the UD...
