I agree, I have alot of respect for Gracie because he was indeed a pioneer of the sport and an ambassador to MMA but the sport has passed him by. He has aged more than some of the other guys at his age, Hughes is not that much younger than Gracie but unfortunately for Gracie, Hughes was in much better shape all the way around. These fighters today are much more well rounded not just in fighting skills but also in Health, Dieting, and Training Techniques.
BTW - My superfight choice:
Chuck Lidell vs Anderson Silva ( granted one of them would have to move up or down in class)
