Matt Hughes thinks Georges St. Pierre's fights are boring.

On his blog, Hughes speaks about GSP's most recent fight stating, 

I would have to say the GSP/Alves fight was the most boring fight to watch. Not trying to say that in a bad way, just compared to every other fight, it was the least exciting. However, GSP does do such a good job of transitioning from his striking to his takedowns.

For those familiar with Hughes' thoughts on St.Pierre, this is something pretty familiar. Hughes also thought GSP's victory over Jon Fitch was boring as well, as he stated that he actually left the arena early, due to how boring that main event was.

And who amongst us can blame Matt Hughes for thinking GSP is boring.

GSP is a fighter known only for his dominant takedowns and ground and pound assault. Obviously a born knockout striker like Matt Hughes naturally must find something boring about such a fighter as GSP.

Or maybe it is dominance that Hughes doesn't like?

After all, when a fighter dominates like GSP has, it does make the outcome seem somewhat predictable. Hughes, who was known for tossing caution to the wind, and turning fights into virtual coin-flips certainly is in a position to notice this.

Perhaps Hughes is just saying this because he looks at what GSP does, and thinks that GSP isn't anything special. Hughes must know that should he fight GSP again, he will most certainly prove that GSP is the inferior fighter.

After all, fourth time is a charm.
