Matt Hughes Overrated?

I think he is very overated. Even though he had overcome alot of good UFC fgithers he lost to some of the ebst UFC fighters. I really don't enjoy watching him. He might have some good techneques but he gets lucky most of the time and I am glad the GSP is new welterweight champion!

I don't see how anyone can be considered over rated after overcoming "a lot of good fighters" and losing to the best. I take it that "over rated" should mean someone hasn't done anything, yet their still considered God's gift to whatever they do. I don't see that with Hughes.

He is not overrated imo. Losing to the best fighters, as you put it, should account for something. Not to mention the many title defenses he came out victorious in. That's not all luck. He just didn't happen to accidentally put GSP in an arm bar the last time they fought :P

Hughes wasn't in the match at any point in Saturdays fight, and the loss made him look extremely weak. Does it take anything away from his past triumphs? Absolutely not.

As much as I detest Country breakfast I have to disagree. I hate it when a champ loses and everyone starts shouting "Matt Hughes exposed!" and "never that good" or "he was just lucky" or "he's a can". What a bunch of loser crap. Matt was a great champ but lost to the better man. He will continue to kick ass all over UFC and possibly (a long shot imo) get the title back.

Stupid thread.

Agreed.

He IS capable of regaining the title but I don't think he actually WILL though.

He's possibly the greatest champion in UFC history and has had more title defenses than any other champ. Every champion loses eventually and GSP was the guy to beat him and mark my words GSP will be another great champion and hold the belt for along time (unless BJ beats him). Matt Hughes is not overrated plain and simple.

Hughes is one of the greatest champions that has ever graced the sport. That is not hyperbole either. Hughes has faced everyone that has stepped in his path, and he has never EVER backed down from a challenge. He has defeated the top WW's in the world, and has put on some really exciting fights. He is the working man's fighter.

Losing to GSP doesn't tarnish his legacy. He is not overrated.
