Yes you are correct on the age difference butyou can't even compare the two on physical attributes and overall conditioning, Hughes is in a whole different league just like Randy Couture is at 42, not many will have that same luck, so IMO Hughes was beating up an old man. I like Gracie but his time has passed him by and he forgot to evolve with the sport.
