I think Matt Hughes would have a good chance at beating Anderson Silva. He obviously wouldn't try standing with him because he knows he wouldn't last 1 round. I'm also sure he'd be alert of his jiu jitsu skills because of what he saw happen to Lutter.
He may have gotten dominated by Georges St. Pierre but I dont think Anderson has St. Pierre like takedown defense. Besides, Hughes only tried 2 takedowns attempts on St. Pierre i believe. He'd have a much smarter strategy against Anderson Silva if he fought him because he KNOWS what hes capable of doing when standing.
