There were a decent amount of boo's for Hughes, but the rules were in favor of Hughes, the support of other fighters were in favor of Hughes and of course thats Dana White's boy. If you noticed before the fight they kept stating Gracie was undefeated, which he is not. You can say maybe the UFC doesn't recognize the loss, but they even have the record posted on their page, unless they updated the record too soon.
The whole story was "This will be the most watched UFC ever". What a story line Dana White has "Hughes brings down the undefeated" and by a ref stoppage.
If G.S.P. doesn't beat Hughes then I think Penn should get a rematch.
