    It doesn’t mention that Mohr tore a ligament in his knee from Gamburyan. He’s going to be out a lot longer than one month.

    Hughes is NOT a dick, he is well respected by all UFC fighters (except Serra because he has no class). I am a St.Pierre fan, but I take nothing away from a champion.

    Scott, I am a dick. I tried to prove it to everyone on TUF or any of my interviews lately? You must be dense if you still think otherwise.

    i hope serra wins(doutfull) just so hughes will fight him,if serra still has the belt i am sure hughes will go after it,if serra loses matt might just retire rather than fighting serra for no belt and have a chance at loes to him for nothing

    "Matt" & Brandon-

    You two cannot be serious! Hughes has a record that speaks for it self. He doesn't talk shit like some do (Serra) and he represents what a true UFC fighter should be. Again I must say, I am a solid St.Pierre fan, but Matt deserves everything thing he has gotten through his carrer. He if does retire, which I think he should now that he has lost to St.Pierre again, he and his professionalism will be missed. That's all I am going to say about that….next issue?
