First post.... and I'm not trolling I promise.

Rumours are abounding in the UK of a UFC107 match up of Hughes vs 'Semtex'.

My personal feeling is that this could be a really, really good fight. Paul is a great fighter who will get better and better and obviously Matt has been round the block once or twice... my feeling is Semtex by KO early or Matt by decision.

I certainly don't have any inside info, I doubt Matt will be fighting in England again, especially against a nobody who's only 1-0 in the UFC. Sure, he's go 30+ fights, but he's no where near Matt's level. Where's the upside for Matt? How iwll this propel him closer to another title shot? If he wins, "Oo-ah, he beat a nobody", if he loses "See, I told you he was too old, retire now!!!!" It's a lose-lose.

I agree!

I highly doubt Matt will take another fight outside of the US, I think his goal is to fight closer to home, not further away.

How to tell a troll in 3 easy steps...

The name they choose for their login
The first thing they do is explain how they aren't a troll...
In their first post on a fighters forum they share that said fighter will get KO'd in the first round of an imaginary fight...


It's kinda like when somebody says "I'm not trying to be rude...." then proceeds to say something completely rude. :wink:

UFC107 is in the US I believe?

Daley isn't a nobody... the UFC wanted him a few years back and he said no cos it wasnt the best option for him at the time. He has very very good stand up and KO power as good as anyone.

Agreed that it is a strange option for Matt in terms of 'progression' but he has to fight someone. Daley is no can that's for sure and he'll surprise again (I don't think Kampmann saw that coming!).

By his own admission Daley needs to get better at some aspects of his game to compete with the top end guys like GSP, but with due respect to Matt I still think this is a good fight... very watchable and potentially highlight material.

Daley will give consistent, exciting and entertaining performances and Matt is always going to be a big draw cos of his name.

Lol'd at the mis-quote of my first post :)

Feel free to quote me anytime.

1. My login is my fightname.
2. I'm no troll but I knew my post would be called out as just that.
3a. I mentioned my possible predictions... that is allowed one post or not surely?
3b. Imaginary fight? We'll see. Apologies if it doesn't occur, but if you look on cagewarriors.com you'll see a few threads mentioning this fight.

I didn't come here for arguments. I've been posting on cagewarriors for a while, but am losing patience with trolls. Hence my being keen not to be branded one.... oops! Looks like I cocked that up eh? :ashamed:

That's not true. I said you didn't have to be nice to him just because he lives in the same state as I do. You should be nice to him just because.

I think Matt's next fight depends a lot on what Matt wants. If Matt wants to try and make one more run at the title the UFC might have him fight someone to give him 2 wins in a row before a number one contender match. If Matt just wants to take a few big fights and the title is not his goal I dont think this fight will happen.

I must say, i do agree with part of your prediction. If Daley is gonna win it would have to be early in any of the three rounds because once Matt takes it to the ground I dont see Daley being able to do much from the bottom.

He will do a lot of getting smashed.
