St. Pierre to fight Hughes ... again

New, 1 comment

UFC Welterweight Georges St. PierreGeorges St. Pierre has earned a chance to avenge his October 2004 defeat at the hands of UFC Welterweight Champion Matt Hughes.

The 170-pound Canadian product suffered a demoralizing loss to Hughes by armbar submission in "UFC 50: The War of 04" with only one second remaining in the first round.

St. Pierre has since fought his way back to the top, rattling off a string of impressive wins against the likes of Frank Trigg, Sean Sherk and BJ Penn, among others.

According to a recent article, there is no date yet for the title fight, but the St. Pierre camp expects it to happen in early September.

Good luck GSP.
