This is quite a debate between people. If you think of different ways of pronouncing the word "hubris," then mention it in the comment section and I will take note of it.
Select gender and age to cast your vote:
I don't know how it's supposed to be pronounced, but my initial thought was like "hoo-briss"/"who-briss"
I've NEVER heard anyone pronounce it "ha-bree." I didn't even know this existed. It's like the thing with "catsup," which people claim exists, but I've never heard it before.
Basic English pronunciation, never heard of the other version.
Who tf pronounces it "ha-bree"?
Don't forget about the motto "Injury is more easily forgotten than insult" because you insulted me there lad.
You'd better remember it too because your pronunciation is insulting
American way has no place in this post thread.

This is why dictionaries have a short pronunciation guide after the word.
However you also need to remember there's English, and then various colonial dialects that say things differently from standard, such as Australian, Canadian or American. So it's not always straightforward.
However in standard pronunciation "Hue-Briss" would be correct.
Hue Briss would be a great name for a comic book super villain by the way
Thanks for the MHO
