Yeah. He was getting beat up and he pulled out a no injury win. BJ Penn didn't have a freak injury. He even said that he felt something pull while he was defending himself. Hughes may not have known Penn was injured but he did capitalize off of it to get the win. It seems like no one is impressed if Hughes wins unless he totally decimates somebody.
