sxrxnrr has a little shameless behaviour in the past
I have only seen one fight were I noticed some Judo throws, there defanitly is some knowlege in judo that could be useful. But Judo is not going to change the world of MMA. The reason that Royce got out classed by Matt was he allowed he did not fight any good fighters before he fough Matt. Given a couple of warm ups or tomato cans as you might say, he would have done better. I still dont think he could have won but it would have been closer.

Will that samething every happen to Matt - No, Matt is a student of MMA, look how he improved since he got be by BJ. I also dont think Matt will retier and then come back.

he did that a lot against bigger fighters so it was understandable, but in the same weight class he was getting man-handled, plus I never saw Royce, EVER, sprawled out, with a fighter mounted on his back pounding the back of his head. In the old days, Matt could have reigned elbows to the back of the head and Royce would have been KTFO

Ehh, I dont think so.

Hughes has NEVER knocked someone the F out. So....

Newton by slam, but never with strikes

No, because unlike Royce, Hughes always updates his skill. Hughes isn't behind the times.

Whether you like him, or hate him, Hughes is one of the best in the world right now. To say he'd get smashed like Royce did is stupid.

I dont think the time limit would have changed things much, but the no holds barred might. Royce is a dirty fighter, I loved when he kept pulling Kimo's hair, in one fight he actually kept choking a guy after he tapped.

I still think Matt would kick his ass though.

Yeah, I think no holds barred would, and Royce having a Gi on.

Well said,I think Royce being out for so long contributed. Maybe Royce needed to better gauge the level of talent to see where his weaknesses were, probably not the best plan to return to the UFC after 10 years and take on the best fighter in the entire organization. I think Royce was really surprised ... this was not the octagon he remembered

Wow, they sure are always going to be on top of things
One thing that I find interesting is that gsp seems a little intemidatted by matt. Avoiding him in tuf 4 and when he tryed to insult him after his match with bj he did not sound verey confident. When he did insult matt you saw just shrug his sholders and be done with it. I think GSP is scared and that will lead to his downfall.
