Just wanted to see which fight or fights of Matt's are the favorites around here?

I thought about making a poll, but there's just too many fights. Maybe I'll keep a running total here on the front of this thread.

I've only see it once, but my favorite was:

Matt Hughes vs. Sean Sherk. It was so much back & forth action for 25 minutes, what's not to love about it?

Running Total:

6 - vs. Frank Trigg II
4 - vs. BJ Penn II
1 - vs. All Fighters
1 - vs. Carlos Newton I
1 - vs. Joe Riggs
1 - vs. GSP I
1 - vs. Marcello Aguiar
1 - vs. Royce Gracie
1 - vs. Sean Sherk

Hughes vs Trigg 2
Man, when Matt slammed Trigg it sent chills down my spine. I hope to God that Hughes slams sarah the way he slamed trigg. :punch:

Definitely Trigg II. Coming back from an illegal blow, the slam, choking him out and proving that the first beatdown was no fluke was just incredible.

i liked BJ II ... BJ this BJJ wizard had matt in this triangle or whatever it was .. .was literally sitting on his face .... and any mear mortal would have tapped or been rendered unconscious, matt just shrugged it off and would ass in the next round ... even rogan and couture (i think it was randy) were like, why is matt taking it to the ground? uh, duhhh, to put BJ in a crucifix and pound the living hell out of his melon into stoppage ...

you can't beat that .... and even better was matt's post fight comment (forgive if I misquote) ... "i knew i was down two rounds which only meant i had three more to go" ...

I like this one the most but that may be because I was there just about 8 rows back. I actually jumped up an 1/8 of a second before it was stopped and think I even started yelling "stop!" because I felt sorry for BJ he was so pathetic and screwed.And I don't even like BJ :laugh:


So with out further ado....

The way he came back and picked up Trigg and carried him over and slammed him then finished him. Trigg 2 for me.

no doubt that was a great fight, but imo the BJ 2 fight was even a better example of that ...

If getting hit in the balls is part of becoming a champion, I'll be much happier just watching somebody else be the champion. :laugh:

Yeah, I remember seeing that fight live thinking, "****, he's done for! F'ing ref!" Major comeback!

I can't edit my original post anymore, so how can I change the tally? Oh well :sad:

I'm going to say Riggs.... Only because of all the talking Joe did before how he was bigger, stronger, hits harder.... I believe his words were while he looks at his hands.... "I got 2 cement blocks at the end of my arms"....

The Diesel got ran over by a John Deere.... that's all I saw in that 3 minutes of destruction... And I laugh every time I watch it after listening to his chatter before hand.

Just keep posting a running tally as the votes come in.

I vote for the second Trigg fight.

Trigg 2. That was my first time to see Matt fight. Like MMeh said, that fight showed what a true champion is and it showed what isn't champion material. Even though the ref missed the knee to the groin I give him kudos for not stopping the fight too early which is exactly what Trigg's corner was screaming. Matt was magnificent! He never quit working throughout the knee, the hitting or the choke and turned it all around for the win. For anybody who read Matt's book you might remember Marc Fiore tells Matt that Trigg will basically just give him his back and quit. And that's exactly what he did once Matt carried him across the cage and dropped him. :laugh:

TRIGG II
unbelievable drama and jsut the listening to the crowd go nuts is awesome.

Love in the Riggs fight when he lock on the kimura it sounds like someone from Matt's corner yells "BREAK HIS ARM, MATT!"

I'm torn between Trigg I and II. The first one makes me laugh because Trigg was probably like "I can't believe he did that". II he was probably like "I can't believe he did that either! If a low blow won't stop him how do I stop this man?" I guess my fave it Trigg II because the humiliation Trigg must have had after running his mouth makes me so happy. (oops did i say that out loud)

Matt is an awesome fighter. He is awesome because of his morals, his beliefs and his fighting ability. The only fights I can not bring myself to watch again is the verbal tap to GSP and his knee getting all bent up.
