Former UFC Welterweight Champion Matt Hughes, who lost his seat atop the UFC_s 170lbs division to current champ Georges St. Pierre took to his blog this week to gives his two cents on UFC 129_s main event and his desire to see GSP get the hunger back he once seemed to have:
As for the GSP/Shields fight, I really believed GSP was going to tear Shields up. The fight didnâ€™t go like I thought it would at all. Let me tell everybody now, I like GSP, heâ€™s a good guy and heâ€™s somebody I wouldnâ€™t mind sitting next to on a plane ride or at a supper table. So donâ€™t think that Iâ€™m talking out of bitterness for the two losses, Iâ€™m speaking through experienced eyes that have been in these situations. GSP actually looked worse in this fight than Iâ€™ve ever seen him before. I really feel like Georges fights not to lose, he just doesnâ€™t fight to win anymore. I like Georges, I like watching him fight, I wish there was some way I could help him to get that hunger back inside of him. Georges has the potential of being so much better than what weâ€™ve seen recently. If Jake had won one more round he would have won the fight, based on how the judges scored it. So an interesting fight and a little disappointing at being the last fight of the night.
