Hughes vs. Parisyan*





* I know he's "booked" to fight Hazelett but it's a shot in the dark.

Hughes vs Fitch is a good possibility and would be a pretty darn good fight. As much as I have always thought of Hughes being a douche I still don' t want to see him fight Anthony Johnson, Hughes doesn't need another ko loss right now and it will be a KO loss for sure if he fight Rumble.

I wouldn't be so sure, Johnson doesn't have much from his back, and Hughes could put him there imo. Week notice or not, he did get subbed by a much much smaller rich clementi.

I just watched Hughes VS Serra again yesterday, and if Serra was 5-6 and had any hand-speed, he would've KO'd Hughes. Rumble is really young, but he would destroy Hughes on the feet cuz Hughes has some of the worst stand-up I've ever seen at 170.

And I think Fitch is fighting Almeida next., so maybe Hughes VS Hallman?

Hughes said its some he hasn't fought before...so that would rule out Hallman.

I have seen Almeida linked to both Fitch and more recently...Johny Hendricks. So I'm not sure what's going on with those guys yet.

Hughes vs Kos would prob a challenge for him. Many people think Kos' wrestling is better so it would answer the question.

if hughes was a little younger he would be interesting if he would drop down lightweight and fight BJ.

I think the present day Hughes wouldn't be able to beat BJ Penn at welterweight. My problem is I can't see Hughes beating anyone in the top 10 right now. Well good luck to him, hopefully he'll finally begin evolving his game.
