Hughes will win. He's looked awesome in his past couple of outings.

Hughes seems revitalized while Penn seems poised to begin the career fade.

Hughes is going to get Penn down in round 3 and gnp him till the ref stops it. Yup, thats what I'm going with.

gabe ruediger would look awesome fighting renzo gracie

i am going with Penn here no matter how much people might think he has faded, i believe Hughes has faded and just has looked good against mediocre opponents. He barely got by Serra too

I think Matt is just mentally far stronger than Penn.

Matt is country tough and his confidence doesn't get shaken.

Penn has lost two in a row and he feels the pressure to get a win. In the interview last night, he damn sure didn't look confident. He looked like a guy spooked.

Matt and Muur have that unshakable confidence and heelishness in common. They come back from a defeat still truly believing they are the best and going to kick ass.

Penn just isn't wired that way.

Definitely going for Penn, but not sure if he'll pull it off.
