I new St. Pierre would beat Hughes, but now we need a good fight for St. Pierre. I hate when title fights suck ass, and I think Carlos Newton vs Georges St. Pierre would be a great Title Match.

Taking nothing away from Newton, but GSP is just too physical and well rounded a fighter for him, I don't think Newton would want to stand with Georges and IMO the only way it goes to the ground is if St.Pierre takes it there...

I always liked Carlos but GSP is just too much... Right now, even as stacked as the WW div is, the only challenge in GSP's way would be if he moved to MW, and I don't see that happening, so he will own that division (as long as he stays healthy), IMO

Matches I like to see in that division are:

Diego vs GSP
Fitch vs GSP
Fitch vs Karo
Kos vs Hughes
Alves vs Burkmann
Fickett vs De Souza
Fitch vs Diego
Diego vs Hughes
Alves vs Karo

the list just goes on and on... so many good fights to be made there :D

I definitley agree that Hughes / Kos would actually be a good fight, unlike most of Josh's fights (sorry just not a LnP fan), or maybe I'm just secretly hoping that Matt would hillbilly-stomp him???

Karo would slaughter Alves, though...

Kos' boxing has come a long way; I think it'd be a good fight.

Newton is not a full time fighter anymore, and fight's at 185 now. He has always had all the ability, was even a champion once, but I don't see him being a top 10 welterweight unless he fully dedicated himself to fighting, and joined a good team to help with his training.

This is how i see it playing out
Huges gets a tune up
kos/diego
huges/GSP rematch
winner of Kos/diego gets tyitle shot
unless matt beats GSP then the cycle restarts again with GSP getting a tune up and then a title shot

It's a vicious cycle

Don't know if Newton could hang with GSP, but I would love to see Newton back in the UFC.

totally agree except for the "unless matt beats gsp" gsps lossto matt made him sick and he had to wait so long for the rematch and had all that time to prepare his strategy for matt (his strategy, not how to defend matt) i can see matt going throuigh everybody in his way, but he won't beat gsp again(its going to be like tito and babalu against chuck)
