    I hope it's Rich vs. Chuck in that fight. We finally get to see the bad blood match of Hughes and Serra…I can't wait for that one.

    i want it to be rich vs chuck as well, i think shogun would beat him but he also can't afford to lose in his first fight back so i hope he gets 1 warm up fight in, and i want the hughes vs serra feud finally settled.

    Yeah, Franklin Vs Liddell could be pretty good. I really want to see Serra beat Hughes, I just don't know who I would go with there.

    This would be cool. I have been wanting to see Franklin and Chuck slug it out. I'm sure chuck will be the favorite but they will both fight hard to try and rebound their legacy. I think Sera wins against hughes. Sera seems to be a little bit more well rounded.
