You know, everybody here is probably going to think I'm a total prick, but I can't believe the ridiculous statements you guys are making.
Hughes is a welterweight.
Rich Franklin is a middleweight.
Chuck is a light heavyweight.
Andrei Arvloski is a ****in' heavyweight!!!
Matt might have a shot at Franklin, maybe. Against Chuck or Andrei he'd get his head removed. That's why they have weight classes. Good small guys, generally speaking, don't have a snowballs' chance in hell of beating good big guys in MMA anymore.
