Royce VS Matt.

Who's going to predict this? I'm obviously a Gracie fan, but I think Matt is going to win this. I think he's a better all round fighter, and well, the UFC isn't what it was when Gracie ruled.

If its Matt Hughes then yea he will most likely lose, but if it some other guy named Matt( which i doubt) he will win.

Yeah, Matt Hughes. I think unless Royce has seriously stepped up his punching, etc, he's not going to win. But who knows. All it would take is one slip by Matt. That's why I love this sport.

Yea ever since i saw the Tanner v Hughes fight i fell in love with the sport. Matt got out of a submission(me and a dew buddies were like its over) once he got out of it i knew Trigg was going down. Great fight

UFC 60: Hughes vs. Gracie - 05/27/2006

Ok, lets think about this............. Hughes.

I think Royce deserves the respect as he’s earned, he’s changed the sport that’s for sure, but does he have enough for Hughes?

Hughes: Record: 40-4-0
Royce: Record: 13-1-2

I mean, wow, that’s a ton of ring experience difference.
Hughes even loves grappling, and look at the guy, he’s a monster. Mind you, he did lose to Dennis Hallman via arm bar, but so what

I'm going to agree. Unless Royce has done some serious striking training, he's gonna get owned. But hey, who knows. We all know that all it takes is one slip.

Matt is a hell of a fighter. Likely the best right now. I'd definitely pay to see him vs Chuck Liddell, or Andrei Arlovski. Or Matt and Rich Franklin too. I'd love to see an old school UFC championship. That would rock. No weight classes, you lose, you're out. Just like the originals.

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.
