Hughes is already legend, its GSP-time.

GSP by TKO in the 2nd.

I don't know why.. It might be how long Hughes reigned as champion, but I just can't pick against him.

It'll be close...i'll be rooting for Hughes. But he's gonna have to be in the greatest shape of his life and have the determination to be a champ again if he wants to beat GSP.

...on another note, if GSP should win, i'll be happy to see him and Serra in a rematch just so that GSP can even the score finally.

I think I saw 4 or 5 people pick GSP by 2nd round tko, and while I can respect that, here's Why I disagree with that...(And I'll give more than a one sentence response, too)

In the second fight, Hughes tried to strike with GSP, only going in for one takedown, and failing. That's not a matt hughes fight, and it showed when he got knocked out. (And whether hughes will admit it, getting kicked in the nuts three times certaintly didn't help, haha)

Matt WILL be more focused this time and fight HIS fight. Also, The comment GSP made make me kinda curious on UFC.COM, saying "I'm fight hughes for the interim title, then I get to fight serra." Whether or not he's looking past Hughes, who knows, but Hughes has a full training camp behind him and will be fresh, not fighting since march. GSP is taking it on short notice, but it's not as big of problem for him as it would be some fighters.

I Actually think It has a good chance to go the distance. I expect Hughes to be ALOT more relentless with the takedown attempts this time. GSP has a good ground game, but I think I favor hughes' a bit more. The guy has 18 wins by submission, more than GSP has total wins. That being said, I don't see GSP making the mistake he made in the first fight, leaving himself open to submission. It may come down to passing and Ground and pound, in which case I clearly think Hughes has the advantage. GSP might be the more natural athlete, but Hughes has more strength which just might be the edge here. So, Unless GSP can find perform the tough task of preventing Hughes from taking him down again, it'll be a close fight, mostly spent on the ground, but an exciting ground fight. However, that's where hughes probably has the advantage, on the ground. Therefore, even though it will be close and competitive...

Matt Hughes by split decision.

Agree, disagree, share with me. But personally, I've seen too many "gsp 2nd round tko" posts, so I thought I'd bring a different aspect to this thread.

Great write up. The only thing that makes me disagree (although I'll be rooting for Hughes to hold the belt one more time) is that Koscheck's shot was totally neutralized by GSP. While Koscheck isn't as strong as Hughes I still think he has one of the best shoots in MMA. I think GSP might have Hughes' number, but it'll be a lot closer than the first or second fight.
