Royce dominated when no one else had a strong understanding of BJJ.

He's past his prime, going up against a world class fighter at the peak of his abilities.

Hughs studies BJJ extensively, both for his use, and in defense of it. Wrestling, striking....He's a total package fighter.

I can't imagine Gracie beating him. However, no one would have imagined Gracie beating everyone back in his prime either. He's been known to shock.

My money is on Hughes, but I wouldn't be horribly surprised by an upset.

One way or the other, I can't wait.

I also can't wait for Couture-Liddel 3. I'm upgrading to digital cable tomorrow, so I can see the PPV in the comfort of my own home for once.

I'm a UFC addict!!!!
