Gracie has nothing left to prove. He's still an incredible fighter. He lost to hughes due to strenght advantage.

I think we'd see the same outcome.The 1st fight went exactly as I expected.Royce dictated the pace on the feet with leg kicks and eventually Matt got frustrated and went for the takedown.The only problem was that since Royce wasn't a wrestler matt was able to slam Royce into side controll.Where there isn't any submission that Royce could pull off.That's when Matt used his strength advantage to keep Royce in side control and than to keep him in mount than to keep him in back mount.

No way If anyone thought Gracie had a chance , was really dumb. Come on I didnt even get that ppv, I knew he was going to win. Matt has a spoon fed division for him, every opp, he has had either has to move up in wieght or move down. The division is taylor made for Matt.

lol, hughes frustrated? Royce dictated the pace, lol, he almost got submitted (he broke his hand but he didn't want to tapout because it will be so funny that a "wrestler" submitted BJJ master, lol...)

Hughes is more well rounded and more powerful, but it was not a Hughes onlyadvantage that he was stronger than him

i knew from the git go that gracie didnt stand a chance aginst matt, i wasnt excited about the fight at all, it came out exactly as i thought it would, royce has some of the best submissions in the world but hughes is just simply better then him.
