This is a tough one. They are both great fighters, but i dont see hughes giving up the belt just yet. I dont see anyone knocking out hughes. They only way gsp can win is by some kind of choke. I think hughes is going to outlast pierre though, and win with some kind of arm sub. in the late third or fourth round.
I think ref stoppage...stun him with a punch maybe...GSP is very well rounded and is better on his feet then hughes...after the knockdown, maybe GnP, i know its matts game, but i just think GSP wants it more, hes been thriving for the title
both the most dominate welterweights in the ufc, almost impossible to call because they both just dominate all opponents thrown at them, but id have to go with gsp now, but this fight could go eaither way.
The part that I love is ,when two fighters of this calibur come together, that it could all come down to who will make the first mistake. GSP found that out the first time...one small mistake and ARM BAR! Matt had the same thing with BJ. I know that neither fighter will take the other lightly, so it comes down to the split second when one takes advantage of a mistake by the other.
I will flip a coin on this one....too close to call....it is going to be a GREAT fight!
