I liked the card. Good fight night. It's a shame about Penn, because I believe he's a better fighter than Hughes, on his feet and on the ground. Hughes has better wrestling, but Penn has world class takedown defense, a world class ground game, and has heavier hands. But Hughes wanted the win more and is much more mentally sound and focused. Penn is one of those guys that's unbeatable in the gym, but always comes up short in the big one. The lesson to be learned: Don't climb trees to improve cardio.
As far as what GSP said, c'mon, you should know better. This is the process to draw money. They do it in pro wrestling, boxing, and mma. There needs to be a story, a build, something to entice casual fans to purchase ppvs and tickets. Having said that, it sounded like Dana White told GSP to utter those words not even 5 minutes after Hughes KO'd Penn. Hopefully, GSP will do a better job building up the fight. Hughes fits the heel persona more. GSP is such a nice guy. I have faith UFC will do a good job promoting the match and building a storyline.
