In fact, if I remember right, it was knees from the clinch that ended the fight.
Yah your right Noob Franklin did do better but was no where near throwing anything of Silva's of him like it was nothing. I just cant see Hughes having a chance, he is a great WW champ, but he would be destroyed by Silva, he is way to strong plus his reach he would pick Hughes apart. Then if Hughes ended up getting caught in the clinch it could be life threatning because Hughes is so much shorter.
