No.
Well, maybe after GSP beats his ass again.

I don't see this fight going very well for Hughes, I think he is well past his prime and will retire after he get humiliated again

I'll start by saying this, I am not a Hughes fan. I respect him a ton however.
I don't think he is anywhere near past his prime.
I think GSP is one of the baddest mothers around and he'll beat Hughes again.

well, maybe not way past his prime but I just don't see him being the fighter he once was...the thing with Hughes was he was such a good wrestler that nobody in the past could stop him and were at his level wrestling wise. His problem now is there are so many good wrestlers that his strength is no longer what will win him matches...Koschek, GSP, Fitch, Sanchez are younger and faster and way better at the all around game...I think he loses to all of them

Koscheck's striking is ok at best, Hughes might have better power in what would turn into a wrestling match.
Fitch, same exact matchup.
Niether of those 2 fights would be that exciting.
Diego I think has better all around skills but hasn't improved that much his last few times out and I'd like to see that fight.

GSP to me is the best in the biz and can beat all of them.
He has wins over both Hughes and Koscheck already.

Hughes has NO stand up so anyone he faces is better in that department and he has no power when he throws punches...as far as wrestling matches, I used to wrestle so I don't think they are boring...defenitely not as exciting as the stand up game but to me, not boring

The ground usually is exciting when guys are trying for submissions or throwing elbows, but pure wrestling isn't what I'm looking for.
Hughes has pretty good standup, you just don't see it much.
I honestly think you're way off on him not being able to strike.
