Hughes: To be honest, I can't see finishing BJ


BJ ... he's a hard guy to finish. Got a great chin. Obviously great with submissions. In a three round fight I just don't see him gassing out

A finish against BJ would be big for me, in a three round fight. Submission, or knock out, or ref stop, it would be huge.

To be honest, I cant see that happening. I have never lost a decision n my life. So I see winning a major decision.

One of the better interviews for Matt Hughes, I started really hating his country ass for a while, but he was well spoken here. (likable again)

It's great to see what respect they have for each other, with this interview and their hugging during weigh-ins. I'm glad BJ is putting aside all his old rivalries and showing respect for guys he used to despise, like Hughes and Jens. I think that they both realize that they're one of the last few of the old guard, that are still fighting at a fairly high-level.

Hughes is a high school bully.The only times I ever rooted for him were the Renzo fight and the Almeida fight and it's only because the Gracies are even more stuck up than he is.

reverse psychology, unlike most of the big mouths in the ufc, he doesn't want to give anything away... smart dude.

Hughes doesn't have the speed advantage that was integral to Edgar's gameplan. If anything he'll be at a disadvantage there. And his wrestling is not what it once was.
