i hate matt hughes but to say he is overated is madness he tried to stand up to long with gsp which cost him bad, am glad gsp won but hughes wil be back like he did before.

You have no base for that comment. He has fought anyone and everyone that was put in front of him and beat all but two of them (Penn and GSP) and each of them he had beat before or in the rematch. So to say someone is overrated because they beat everyone is stupid. Anyone who can get in there and win against top fighters is not overrated. He lost to GSP because he didn't do what he is good at and tried something new against a man that would have been the champ sooner or later because he is that good as well. No one has ever been as dominante as Matt Hughes in any weight class, maybe Fedor in one or two more years.

well he pounded out bj penn and carlos newton, submitted jeremy horn in a grappling match in 30 seconds.

thats good enough for me. Matt hughes is not over-rated, hes one of the greatest ufc warriors ot ever enter the octagon.

and after his loss to gsp he said "good job buddy"

so i dont hate him no more. his attitude remains the same win or lose.

I agree. It's ridiculous to call the greatest 170 of all time overrated. This whole thread senseless.

I've also heard people say "Beating Carlos Newton isn't a big deal". Well, you also have to put it into perspective. Newton was at the top of his game when he faced Hughes, and was a very dangerous opponent.

Sherk was also at the top of his game when he faced Hughes.

As was Frank Trigg(As much as I hate to admit that).

I wouldnt say he is overrated, ppl still love watching him. I think he is a good fighter, but I am still glad he got whooped
by GSP. But to call him overrated is nonsense.

dumb thread. Of course Hughes is not overrated. He is like 9 and 1 (9 and 2 now I guess on title defenses. Nobody has done that in the UFC besides him. He just got beaten by a younger better fighter, and we'll see if he can dig down and win the rematch.

not true, Rich Franklin was 21/1/0 (wins/ties/losses) now obviously 21/1/1...But I agree he is not overrated.
