3 things Hughes proved in that fight:
1. He is mediocre on the ground.
2. He is mediocre in standup - only in a 3rd round was he able to deliver anything of consequence, at the point where BJ was completely gassed with his hands down. At this point pretty much anyone would have been able to do some damage.
3. He has sensitivity of a 15 year old girl - "ooooooh, GSP was so mean to me... "
Overall he does have stamina of an ox, and a pretty decent chin - a simple hero for a simple mind.....
