(CP) - As a fresh-faced fighter in 2004, Montreal's Georges St. Pierre started strongly but was eventually overwhelmed in a first-round submission loss to Matt Hughes. Nearly two years later, the 25-year-old mixed martial arts fighter known as "Rush" hopes to show Hughes how much he's learned - by taking away his UFC welterweight title.

"I think I will beat him, because I truly believe that I am a better fighter than him," St. Pierre said Monday from New York. "I'm not a rookie any more. I know what to expect, and I'm not worried at all."

St. Pierre will battle the 32-year-old American for the title at UFC 63: Hughes vs. St. Pierre, on Sept. 23 at Arrowhead Pond in Anaheim, Calif.

Now that will be a great fight this time and St Pierre may have a better chance than most will admit.

Gorge St. Pierre is one tough MMA fighter, i'm not sure i would be suprised if he actually beats hughes, but as far as who i would put my money on, i'd have to say Matt H

My money is on Hughes but I think St. Pierre will make it a much a better fight this time around... perhaps Hughes' toughest fight yet.

Yeah, I'm saying probably Hughes, although I would love to see St. Pierre take it. He deffinitaly has a shot at it.

I like st.pierre he is an amazing fighter,Im not sure he has enough to put hughes away,Matt hughes is a pheonom at the moment,I dont think there is anyone in the ufc (bar BJ PEN) that could touch him.
I would really like Matt Hughes to fight in pride with the big boys he's difinately in thier league...imagine Hughe vs sakurba!now that would be a fight!

Matt Hughes is an awesome fighter but I think St. Pierre has learned a lot on the past two years and this one will be very close. Would love to see St. Pierre take it :)

I think we are going to see a different St. Pierre this fight. I think he realy wants this title. I think he is going to come out more confident, more skilled, and more cerebral than we've seen him before.
