    You people aren't looking at this right. If two awesome BJJ guys go up against each other it's cool. Why wouldn't it be cool to see really good wrestlers fight? Or maybe their wrestling cancels each other out so they just stand and throw really poor punches at each other like Jung v Garcia? It would be cool.

    Either way I'd think it would be boring, sorry NotBj I'm not hating on your dream, it just makes me sleepy.

    A lot of legends dominated in their time period and the new era over took them. However, I really think Hughes was so much better in his prime than where he is now. It would be very interesting to see a prime Hughes vs Fitch. But as of now I've gotta give it to Fitch.

    Watch some of Hughes' feats of strength on youtube bro and their recent.

    About 7 years ago my coach was training and MFS and was rolling with hughes he said that he had hughes in scarfhold and hughes just fucking stood up and picked him up.

    I think in a grappling match Hughes would win on points I don't think Almeida could deal with his power or ability to nuetralize other peoples jitz... See Matt Serra.

    And don't give me any nonsense about MMA-BJJ either.


    Hughes is a high-level grappler. He has solid submission defense, very solid for a non-black belt. He does not have the Big Dog's submission game, not even close.

    I know it was 10 years ago but Hughes did beat Almeida at ADCC back when Hughes was just a wrestler getting submitted by the likes of Dennis Hallman. Hughes since then has become one of the best grapplers in MMA history and Almeida has stayed pretty much the same. Sure he has gotten better but not by the same leaps and bounds Hughes has. Age has caught up to Hughes but its not like Almeida is a young gun and in a grappling match Hughes would more then hold his own with Almeida and prehaps even beat him... again.

    Of course I could be wrong, Almeida could develope the wrestling game it takes to put Hughes on his back and submit him. Or maybe the striking it takes to keep Hughes off balance and KO him. But just looking at his past fights I just do not see what Almeida offers Hughes and why so many people think he is going to win with ease.
