    Both of these fights are classics and I cant wait for the PPV. I know GSP is the heavy favorite but I think Matt Hughes is serious when he says hes about done. He wants to leave as the UFC champ again so I'm not counting him out on this one. He is going to train even harder for GSP. I get the feeling its going to be a great fight again.

    I cant see Hughes winning this fight. He hardly landed a punch in the second one. Plus GSP's wrestling looked amazing against Koshcheck. GSP to athletic to lose

    I'd never count Huges out of a fight. GSP is a heavy fav but anything can happen in this sport. Serra doesnt have the striking arsenal as GSP and has no height and no reach and he knocked him out.

    Forget the grudge match. This fight is ten times better and I can't wait to see St. Pierre on top again. Hughes is going to put up a good fight. St. Pierres wrestling looked much improved in the Kos fight so I think either he will dominate or there will be another crazy finish. I'm also betting Wandi is going to down Chuck so both former champs might be passing the torch on for the new year.

    Yeah, Chuck screwed himself by not picking up a win vs. Jardine. You're only as good as your last fight in this sport so if he loses 3 straight its going to be hard to promote him for any big fights. He should retire but I promise that as long as he doesnt get Ko'd quickly and hangs with Wandi, he will want to fight again.
