Matt is at the top of his game because, what he beat Gracie? Riggs??
Was it his struggle with Trigg???
I wont go back to 2004 to his first fight with GSP or his loss to Penn, but the point is Matt Hughes is predominantly a wrestler & GSP has schooled every wrestler he's fought since his loss to Matt.
GSP is a big WW with awesome submissions & IMO will move up to MW after his fights with Hughes & Penn & give Franklyn a run for his money.
I will gladly admit I don't like Hughes, but I do respect he is a great fighter. I just think GSP is better as is Penn. I also think Parisyan would stand a chance of beating him.
