Matt Hughes Comments On UFC 87 Event: GSP Looked “Tired from the first round”

Matt Hughes drove from Hillsboro, Illinois to Minneapolis, Minnesota in order to watch the UFC 87 event.  In his personal blog, he discusses his thoughts on some of the fighters that participated in the octagon that night.  He states that the Brock Lesnar fight played out just the way he thought it would.  He talks about the Kenny Florian vs. Roger Huerta bout and states that GSP vs. Fitch was so boring he "walked out of the arena."

Here’s what Matt Hughes had to say at his personal blog (

"So that (UFC 87 event) was kind of fun, I went there really to watch one fight, probably not the one you’re expecting. I went there to watch Brock Lesnar. He is so interesting because he is so athletic as well as being so powerful. So that fight went just like I thought it would, Brock took him down whenever he wanted and on the ground he did whatever he wanted. I was also there watching my buddy, Roger, but he didn’t quite look the same. I don’t think him or Kenny fought their best fight on Saturday. Roger looked to have done a few things different and I would say that he needs to go back to what he was doing before.

The last fight of the night was Georges and Fitch. Georges didn’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 can’t do that. You can’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 wasn’t the most exciting and I wanted to get out of there before everyone else was getting up to leave.

So then Sunday morning I got up and we drove our ten hours back to Hillsboro."
