Georges St. Pierre is about to face one of his greatest
challenges when, on Dec. 29, he squares off against Matt Hughes for the third
After champion Matt Serra had to drop out of the main event
fight against Hughes due to an injury, St. Pierre jumped in immediately to take
the fight on short notice.
The bout will be for the interim welterweight title and
tonight St. Pierre will address his training and what fans can expect in the
fight with Hughes.
Also on the show will be top lightweight fighter Gilbert “El
Nino” Melendez who is just days away from traveling to Japan to face another
tough test in Mitsuhiro Ishida at the Yarennoka event on New Year’s Eve.
Melendez came back to action some months ago in Strikeforce.
Before he returns there to face Josh Thomson, he will first fight Ishida in a
bout with all the makings of a classic battle.
