In the cases of MMA or Boxing, title defenses are a huge factor to consider. As of right now, GSP does not have that legacy. I'm not denying that GSP is more talented than Hughes was in his prime, but unitl GSP has more successful title defenses and legendary fights as Matt Hughes, I will not consider GSP the Greatest Welterweight of all time. Maybe the most talented, but not the greatest at this time.

well put repped.

This thread has motivated me to look around for his fights with Trigg and see what all the fuzz is about.

LOVE HIM....ive met him and he is great everyone thinks he is a dick and yeah he is sometimes on camera but off camera i dont think so ive followed his blogs, videos, books, and met him ....of course i dont kno him personally but from what i judge i think he comes off that way on camera but i highly doubt he is that way off camera

id disagree with that matt hughes in 2005 was great and in 2004 and so on....like many said the sport has evolved but still disagree with that statement

The only claim you can really make that matt hughes in his prime could beat GSP is if hughes's wrestling was better than GSP's. Which, while very good, was never at Pierre's level. GSp vs hughes in 2005 would still heavily favor GSP>
