Matt Hughes: 'Mind games' got under the skin of Serra during TUF 6 (Audio)

Matt Hughes
Props: (Check the comments section for a quick recap.)

While we're at it, Hughes also offered up some predictions on the upcoming UFC 74 fight between Georges St. Pierre and Josh Koscheck on his official Web site forum. He also comments on who he thinks would win a fight between Sean Sherk and BJ Penn ... and more.

Here's the full snip:

"I think GSP will win the fight. He has so many more ways to win. All I see Kos doing is taking him down and holding him. If he can take him down. Kos might be the better wrestler, but that does not mean the he will get the takedowns. Who can do takedowns in a fight not on a wrestling mat. I think I would beat Kos easier than GSP.

I think Sherk wins this fight. He will be stronger, better shape, and confident. I do not think BJ can stop his takedowns, and I do not think he can submit Sherk. Sherk will be in so much better shape. I was not impressed with BJs cardio in the Jens fight."

Hughes and Serra are opposing coaches on the upcoming season of The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 6, which is set to debut on Wednesday, September 19 at 11 p.m. ET. The two will then settle their score on December 29 in a welterweight title fight.
