Or maybe if Hughes would have just played dead and let Penn pound the crap out of him, he would have won, simple as that...

Dude, it would have just ate a few more elbows, he might have just sprung up like Shamrock did against Tito... Simple as that..
Guy how dumb are you? Penn messed up his ribs in the second round, he didnt gas out. Get your facts straight. Penn was DOMINATING the fight until then. It was an INJURY. Don't go and twist what I said. I said, Penn would have won if he did not get hurt. Hughes couldn't do ANYTHING to him until he was hurt. Penn said he let Hughes take him down because he could not stand, and let him mount because he'd rather get punched in the face then in the ribs. Watch the fight again, you can see exactly where Penn gets hurt.
