    How 'bout the fights? I had a bad feeling that Hughes may lose that fight if he couldn't take GSP to the ground. He didn't seem to take him seriously. Hughes gets hit, then stands back, drops his hands and smiles. Then wham! I guess he should've paid more attention. Now the Sylvia fight was a shocker. I had no clue he could out grapple Monson. He made Monson look like a wee little pest. Wish he would've finished him off though with a big KO. I don't blame Sylvia for not taking any chances.

    Yep..I agree w/ u. Hughes didn't look like himself from the start of the fight. Was really disappointed to see him lose but happy to see Sylvia win. I give Monson a lot of credit though...he got Sylvia down but just couldn't get him locked in on his submission...I'd never seen him fight...he's one big dude! Wonder if those low blows took all the wind out of Hughes?

    It was disappointing to see the home town guy lose, Matt Hughs. I would say that two kicks Straight to the NADS in less than 30 seconds would take the wind out of anyone.
    I live close to Matts home town of Hillsboro. It was a shock to all of us. Everyone is talking now that they hope he quits before he gets hurt badly. A kick to the head like last nite could end up hurting him for the rest of his life.

    I was really disappointed to see Monson come up short. I know he has the ability to get the job done but giving credit where its due, Sylvia's takedown defense was right on point. GSP however did exactly what I figured he would. He had Matt's number from the opening bell. He just kept up an attacking pace and Matt could'nt get himself established. I suspect that Militich will probably work on Matt matching GSP's pace and Matt might get the belt back...next up Liddell/Ortiz! Who's got who? Im going with Lidell by way of knock out.

    I am a huge Matt Hughes fan, and almost didn't order the fight, just because I knew he was going to lose. GSP is one bad dude, I don't think he will lose anytime soon, to anyone. I love Matt, but they could fight 10 times, and GSP would win 9 times, I am afraid.

    Does not seem like Matt has the fire he once had either, almost like he is getting a little burned out??:confused2:

    As for Monson, I was a little suprised, just goes to show though, sometimes "too big" really does exist. It was funny as heck watching him stand in Sylva's guard and not be able to reach his head with his punches though.:smile2:

    Me too!! I hope so anyway. Chuck is my favorite MMA fighter, except for maybe Hughes.

    If Ortiz wins that fight, you won't be able to get him out of the building his head will swell so fast. I can't stand that mouthy little punk...:angry:

    He is one tough SOB, and a good fighter, but he has no respect for anyone or anything in the sport, I hope Chuck cracks his skull this time! LOL:wink:

    So what's the scoop on Ortiz? I don't think it will matter once Chuck gets done with him. He will probably be a vegetable or worse afterwards.

    Tito retired a Kent Shamrock 10 years after Kent should have quit fighting. Shamrock is not even Shamrock any more, he has taken to much punishment, and been in to many wars to fight these young dudes. His reflexes are almost non existant, and he punches like he is holding 50lb dumbells in his hands.:sad2: He is a legend, and one of the best all time, but to try to predict what Ortiz will do against Chuck based on his fights with Shamrock simply won't work. Chuck did not fight Shamrock because he had nothing to gain or prove in doing so, I guarantee it has nothing to do with being afraid of him.

    He is a very good fighter and athlete, but I think/hope Chuck caves his head in. If it goes to the ground, Tito may have a nice advantage though, I don't think I have ever seen Chuck on the ground?? He does such a good job of keeping the fight on the feet.

    It's been said that Chuck has the best takedown defense in the game. Tito cant go blow for blow standing up that's for sure. If Tito tires Chuck out, then maybe.

    Anderson Silva has been around for a long time. Prior to coming over to UFC, he was over in Pride for a while. If you ever get a chance to see some of his fights over there, jump on it. He's got a really ground game too. He's trained with Brazilian top team on and off and he's also part of the Chutebox Academy with Wanderlei Silva.

    Silva is pretty bad, like a lot of the Pride fighters, he will do well in the UFC.

    Just lucky it is not Wenderlie Silva. That man is B - A - D!! If you ever watch Pride fighting, watch this guy. He is the nastiest, meanest, "want to hurt you" I have ever seen fight. He literally wants to HURT people, not just beat people.

    In my opinion, there are several guys fighting in Pride that would completely dominate the UFC, if they were to come over. There are MEN fighting over there, that have been doing it for years, there is not one fighter in the UFC I could think of that could hang with any of the top three fighters from Pride. Good Stuff!:smile2:

    Chuck has the best sprawl of any fighter I've seen. There's virtually zero chance Tito will get him on his back. Also, chuck won't hunt him down. Chuck doesn't waste energy on a bunch of meaningless punches. Time after time, he gets rushed by a fighter with something to prove, and they walk right into his deadly uppercut. He WILL find Tito's button, and punch it. I predict Tito will attempt to shoot in on Chuck, meanwhile, he will sustain a crushing blow to the jaw.

    That is going to be a great fight and possibly to close to call if it goes to the score cards, which I doubt. I hope Chuck is brushing up on his grappling skills he will need them.
