I do not think that Hughes is going to let that happen again. If you saw his reaction after the fight when he was looking at the ref (was it McCarthy?) it seemed like he was saying "What the fuck are you going to do? He caught me."
I predict Hughes will be push it offensively, but not take any chances. His game plan will be to wear him down for 2 rounds and then overpower him in the last round. Hughes cardio is great and I think he will use it to his advantage.
