Hughes is really just a grappler that takes the fight to the ground and pounds his opponents, or submits him. I never see him standup and strike.
What do you guys think??
Better Champion? I would personally say Franklin...he is (like someone had stated before) more marketable and comes off being more respectable as a champ...time will tell if he is that good as he hopefully will get a chance to fight swick and win then move on to anderson silva...and i can't wait for that fight...it's gonna be great.
