I can see how you could say that Hughes isn't the best ,but to try and downplay his accomplishments is ridiculous.Matt Hughes has taken on all comers and hasn't ducked anyone.He fought Trigg a guy who is a good wrestler and completely dominated him.
He's defended the title against the best-Hayato Sakurai,Carlos Newton,Sean Sherk,andGeorges St. Pierre.He only fought Riggs ,b/c Karo got injured and Riggs stepped up and took the fight on short notice.
Also how can you barely lose to someone?I'd understand if it was a close decision ,but when you get armbarred that's not barely losing.I think GSP will win the rematch ,but give Hughes credit he beat GSP fair and square last time they fought.
