  1. GSP!GSP!GSP!

  2. its not over yet. hughes has already stated that if serra loses to gsp he would probably be interested in fighting serra. war hughes!!!

  3. way to go GSP!!

  4. 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.

  5. I'd actually like to see that fight.

  6. i hate huges, he's a dick. im glad he's hurt. GSP is my boy!!

  7. 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.

  8. Matt Hughes says:

    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.

  9. haha whoever is posing as matt hughes, ur hilarious. SEE SCOTT, everyone thinks matt hughes is a dick…u know why…BECUASE HES A FUCKING DICK. Im not saying he hasnt been a great fighter, im just saying hes an ass hole and i dont like him

  10. 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

  11. Scot Gates says:

    "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?
