Obviously it's not "official" until they announce it, but I don't think this is just a rumor.

I think this fight is exciting and a huge draw. I've been all about this fight since Matt beat him in 2006.

Yeah, I did note the "not official" in Nate's post which would suggest that it's not a rumor. I can see where it would be a draw, but I'm just not excited about it. I'm sure I'll muster up some excitement....

Eventually....once it's official.

But right now I'm feeling kinda Eeyorish about it.

Because everyone is excited to see BJ get KTFO! ( even his fans)
And what better person to do that than !!!! SIR MATT HUGHES !!!

I hope he gets him via Crucifix or Farm boy Choke Hold ( the choke from the Almeida fight )

Once this fight becomes official its gonna gain a massive amount of attention. I have a feeling its going to take over this board very quickly. I also have a feeling I'm going to be doing a lot of Penn defending (as I may be the only pro-Penn person on this board when the fight goes down)

I'm just gonna get this clarification out of the way eral quick: who would you be rooting for?

I figure you need to answer here & now, then put that response in your sig as evidence for when the debates start getting heated!

It is really to bad that this isn't a 5 round fight, where Hughes could take Penn into the championship rounds and wear him down and totally take all the fight out of BJ Penn. I thought it was awesome when GSP took BJ's Pride and arrogance in round 3 and 4.

I also think that GSP wrote the hand book in defeating BJ Penn at 170. Keep Penn holding your weight up against the fence, wear him down and then slam him down. BJ's takedown defense isn't what it used to be, especially against guys that can throw punches and score takedowns. Hughes' striking is 100% improved since their 2nd fight, and BJ is going to have to be aware of it and not just scramble out of takedowns. Also Hughes' greco seems to have gotten much better as well, take BJ down without having to tangle with those flexible weirdly jointed legs seems like a plus.

So you're actually going to be rooting for BJ in his fight against Matt....on here. My crystal ball is forecasting a major ruckus.

Get ready to R-U-M-B-L-E!!!
