Love the revamp! Hug is so inspiring, I was reading that and getting these emotional swings, its weird. All I can say is that Andy was a terrific human being and a legend that will not be forgotten.

That was an awesome thread you put together. It really lets you understand a lot about him. I had no idea about his family life so it was nice to learn about it. Hug is my favorite kickboxer/thai fighter/karate master. He is probably the greatest fighter of all time.

It's really sad that someone with so much talent had to die at such a young age.

Andy Hug vs Ernesto Hoost when Andy won the K-1 WGP. Early years of it, but not sure which year. 1998 maybe?

That's right. Was a little crackly on the dates there. Whats yours MLS? Aerts vs. Hug? I shouldn't even bring that up.

I actually enjoyed all 4 Aerts/Hug fights, if only there could of been one more. The Cro Cop one was a real good fight, Hug/Sefo II was pretty epic, Hug/Bernardo 3 and 4 were good.

No doubt Hug/Crocop. But I also loved all the Bernardo fights. I also loved that knee to Leko and Sefo.
