Matt Hughes has some criticism for Georges St. Pierre
I like to read fighter blogs after a major UFC event. I like to see what the professionals thought about the the PPV.
Matt Hughes had some back handed compliments for GSP, and a criticism of his physique.
The last fight of the night was Georges and Fitch. Georges didnâ€™t look as big as he has before and he seemed like he had gotten tired from the first round. Fitch had the game plan of countering Georges and you just canâ€™t do that. You canâ€™t counter a quicker fighter. To be honest, halfway in the third round I got up and walked out of the arena and went to my hotel. The fight wasnâ€™t the most exciting and I wanted to get out of there before everyone else was getting up to leave.
Georges didn’t look as big? He looked like a monster compared to Jon Fitch, and I didn’t notice a size difference at all.
If anyone didn’t look “as big” , it was Matt Hughes in his last fight, a devastating knockout loss to Thiago Alves. Hughes could not have looked less interested to be inside the octagon for that fight, and his physique looked nowhere near as impressive as his fights where he held the welterweight championship of the world.
