    You and I are in the same tent on this one.

    I can't claim to know much about Royce's recent fighting history. The last time I saw him fight, I think he quit on his stool in a PRIDE match against Yoshida.

    (If anyone saw that match, please feel free to correct me).

    He was wearing a gi and he looked like he was about to pass out. I think Hughes will be in his usual great condition and I can't imagine that Royce will wear a gi for this match. I know there are one or two really, really, minor advantages to wearing a gi (sweat absorption for submission attempts, ability to choke with sleeves.. to name a couple) but the DISadvantages are numerous in most cases.

    I think Hughes will handle him easily.

    But don't forget.... I picked Arlovski over Sylvia!

    Cheers!
    That was probably Saku/Royce that you saw. Royce actually pretty much dominated Yoshida(a 220 pound judo gold medalist!). With that said Royce has a decent chance.

    Wow, you think Matt Hughes is gonna back out. What's the logic behind that?

    They're fighting at 170/welterweight. They're about the same walk-around weight. It's UFC, weight classes are a must.

    Yes but they do not have to make weight and can still fight. Remember Hughes vs Riggs. Riggs did not make weight and still faught.

    Yeah, you're right, I wonder what the limit is. Could you be 15 pounds heavier if your opponent agrees to it? I wonder if it will just be at 185, that would make sense.

    Gracie will not stand. He will go for take down after take down.

    But there is no way in hell Gracie will succeed with the take down unless Hughes wants to go down,Gracies takedowns are less than desirable.
