Eh? I think you take this type of stuff to Sherdog where it belongs.
I did think Hughes could win the fight but if there was any, there is no doubt now that St. Pierre is in a class by himself. (Although I think Fitch will give him much more of a fight than most suspect.) As far as Hughes chances, perhaps I was thinking more with my heart than my head but it's not exactly an off the wall notion. Hughes is one of the greatest fighters in the history of MMA. GSP being better them him now or always doesn't change that fact.
This Sherdog mentality that GSP made Hughes looked foolish or embarrassed him is ridiculous. Hughes got beat by an amazing athlete with superior technique that pulled off one of the greatest arm bars I have ever seen. People will see it the way they want to because of personal bias against Hughes.
As for Eddie Sanchez, I only watched the PPV once so I might have missed something but I am not sure what you are referring to.
