Hughes took one kick to the groin that looked reasonably solid. Like another poster already pointed out, Hughes admitted after the fight he was bullshitting on the second one, his legs were hurt. You can also see that GSP knows this too, he looks at the ref and throws his hands up on the second 'groin kick'.

Hughes used this as an excuse when they did that big countdown of the 100 best fights, claimed getting hit by the groin kicks affected him, but that contradicts his own statements earlier.

Basically Hughes was just making excuses, thats how he is, he never admits he got beaten because the other fighter was better. GSP set him up with low kicks and caught him high later, I don't think the one groin kick that actually landed made any difference.

Very true, and even if it did, GSP still whooped him in the rubber match.

I believe it is set up by a series of other strikes low to make matt open himself and boom look at knee and throw to head....
