i'd rather see...
silva-gsp or silva-chuck or silva-hendo
or
hughes-bj 3 or hughes-diego or
if one could move up and one could move down...
hughes-rampage



hughes vs diego?? HUGHES VS RAMPAGE?? lol hahahaha



you must not comprehend very well many have been changing Wclasses recently so why coulnt matt move up and Q move down. and although i dont like hughes i would like to see him take out diego.



Quinton is too lean at 205 to make 185 without losing muscle mass and power. I wouldn't want to see him fight Hughes.

Hughes is a one trick pony - take a guy down, overpower him, beat the hell out of him. It works wonders against your run-of-the-mill BJJ-wizards who turn to MMA. Unfortunately it does not work well against strong well-rounded dudes like GSP or Page, who cannot be taken down easily, and if you take them down, they just stand back up.
I am not saying that Silva has better TDD than GSP, but he def has better striking.

A. Silva would never fight hughes
B. If the fight did happen, Silva would murder

Matt should just forget about this fight, if he couldn't handle Pele, he can't handle Silva.....

hughes/rampage? that's jumping 2 weight classes! that would never happen!!



apparently you and itaianpride didn't read what i said.
i said if 1 would move up (hughes) and one would move down (rampage) it would be a good fight (at MW). at least from my point of view cause i would like to see Q beat down Matt.

also CC-chuck would be awsome



You're obviously an amateur of a fan. How about Gomi vs Shogun?? Or Mark Hunt vs Sean Sherk?? Rampage is a huge 205, he could never go to 185, Hughes is a midget 185, he can't even dominate 170, but he's going to fight the 205 champ...your knowledge is hilarious. Cro Cop vs Chuck would be awesome?? Chuck can't even hang with the best strikers at 205, and now you want him to fight Cro Cop?? How about we just throw him in vs Fedor so he can die in the octagon and you all can talk about the fight was stopped early.

Hahaha, I enjoy you not being banned. I agree with the chuck Mirko fight, since Mirko woulden't go down chuck would have to come up, I think it'd be the first Mirko fight with no kicks, just a few lefts, and chuck over and out.

hughes made those comments about silva a while back. i doubt a fight with the best mw in the world is on his "too do list".
