Absolute spot on - not a big power punch - just the sort you don't see that is sharp and leaves you reeling. one of the best Hughes finishes!
I absolutely agree. I think that has to be one of my favourite Hughes Fights, Short and to the point, showing off all his most positive attributes, like strength, wrestling...and a finish against possibly the most legitamate Gracie-trained he has fought yet. Came out relatively unscathed, prooved a load of haters wrong. It was...as some other site said that JB quoted in the spoilers thread "absolute perfection" it just was simply outstanding.
To Ricardos credit, he didnt tap out... but...not sure he had much of a chance to be fair
It appears the UFC have heavily rewarded Anderson...which I think is okay...reinforce good behaviour. Anderson got his pay plus winners bonus, then ontop of that he got fight of the night, and on top of that he got the equivilent of a submission of the night bonus also. Thats three atop his salary for the fight. Hopefully that, combined with how close Chael came to winning will convince him its worth putting on a show EVERY time he fights
