and how awesome it is to see in commercials for UFC 100 (even though its in a loss) that the name Matt Hughes is not mentioned unless its followed by THE GREATEST WELTERWEIGHT OF ALL TIME.
I've been watching too and tonight they showed all three of his GSP fights, Alves and Carlos Newton (I think his 2nd fight). I know they were showing the 2nd Newton fight the last couple of nights.
I know there are some great fights like Griffin/Bonnar 1 and some great knockouts, but I just don't see how Matt's fight with Trigg the 2nd time doesn't rate as #1. How many fighters could have taken a hit to the groin, then hits to the head/face, then an almost RNC and then get out of all that, turn and literally pick up your opponent (from that position), put him over your shoulder, take him across the octagon and finish him off with a RNC.
I mean, come on, that fight was amazing or rather Matt was amazing!
