Liddel via KO. Hughes is shorter and has a shorter reach. Lidell would have the advantage. Some will prob argue that Hughes is a good wrestler and could take him down but I dont see it happening as Chuck is a very good at takedown defense. Even if Hughes did take him down Chuck would just find a way to stand right back up as we've all seen him do when he fought other great wrestlers.

I'm a big Hughes fan, but I think this is one fight he'd lose.

Chuck is getting older, and someday a younger kid will get him (Tito?) -but for now ... he's just too strong. Randy got pounded twice, and I think he's a good a wrestler as Hughes -only way bigger.

Just to spite the tone of the debate, I have to say hughes. Both are great fighters and I think matt is obviously a superior wrestler and much better on the ground. I think that if Matt used speed to his advantage, obviously being too seasoned to try and stand with chuck that he would eventually take chuck down and if not submit him at least keep him on his back. I think matt has more gas than chuck.

I can however see that chuck is an excellent kickboxer and matt would have to be careful.

Yeah I mean Couture is an all american and could of competed in Olympics but even his wrestling wasnt enough to take down chuck and keep him grounded. LIke was said before... Chuck has great takedown defense and the few that do take him down, Chuck somehow always pops right back up. Hughes just isnt on the level of LHW greats like Silva, Liddell, Shogun, etc. BJ Penn vs Hughes 2 would be a good one and Hughes vs GSP of course. Either of those 2 have what it takes to beat Hughes.

Hughes would have one chance and one chance only. The same chance he had against BJ. Hope he gasses or gets hurt. Other than that it is a one sided beatdown.

Lol I wouldnt even give hughes a chance. He would have to take liddel down and that is very hard to do. If he tried standing with him he might get knocked out just as fast as Babalu. After the fight with Penn I realized how bad Hughes stand up really is.
