    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.

    I agree with you about him getting his heart back...but it looks like the old vitor is gone...for so long vitor and his strikes were feared but most can weather his storm and if he can get back to his old ways i think he could take almost anoyone in the light HW division.

    Frank Shamrock
    Vitor Belfort


    they are 2 of the best in their prime. The vitor ko's and frank being a stud on the ground...i wanna put a few more on but those are the 2 that stick out the most

    Mark Kerr, Coleman, Fedor, Shogun, Silva, Frank Shamrock, Hughes... There are a ton of others but these are the fighters that standout more IMO

    In his prime I'd say it was Randy Couture. He was always the smaller guy fighting genuine big guys as the HW champ & putting up a damn fine display. Went to LHW & always came in as the underdog & whooped Ortiz & Liddle the top to LHW in the UFC/world at the time.

    All this in an era of true mma. If Randy was 30-years-old today, he'd be just as dominant in LHW as Fedor is at HW.

    I think GSP is awesome, but how can you say he barely lost to Hughes? I know the round was almost up, but he got subbed in the first round. It wasn't a lucky submission, there isn't such a thing. He left an arm out and almost got it broken. In the rematch I think it's 50/50 who will win, but to say the first fight was "barely a loss" is a little bias.


    I wasn't trying to be a dick, your argument was strong enough without trying to downplay his loss to the best Welterweight of all time.
