He gets more popular and more popular after every fight. Definately an UFC posterboy.
True. He is basically the whole welterweight division except with Georges St. Pierre who will take the belt off him in a worse fashion than BJ Penn did on UFC 63. Trust me, Matt Hughes couldn't get by BJ and Georges got by BJ easily but it also took 3 rounds.

Sherdog fight finder shows all of his fights making him 38-4. The records are all over the place. Heck, Kris Rathoermal is supposed to be 4-3 or something but when they announced his record they said 40-4 :laugh:. Records go all over the place.

And I can't wait since Georges St. Pierre is getting a rematch at UFC 63. He definitely win will this time. He beat BJ Penn and Matt Hughes was destroyed by BJ Penn. And Matt took 5 rounds to take out Sean Sherk and Georges destroyed Sean in two tounds. And also Georges murdered Frank Trigg. Matt Hughes had trouble in that rematch against Trigg. St. Pierre definitely looks like the new welterweight champ already.

I have to say I think that George St. Pierre is looking good for the rematch.In his last fight with Matt I thought George was the aggressor until the tapout.Did Matt get lucky like he did when he first won his belt vs. Newton. I still say Matt was out that's why he dropped Newton.Don't get me wrong I think Matt is great you just never know what will happen.

thats mainly becasue different federations or what not may not recoginize other federations and such.. so they won't count fights. Others count all fights so it is hard to get an exact measure of a fighter who has been around awhile in different groups over the years.. each group might have him listed differently

does GSP have it in him to defeat Matt Hughes? the last fight was awesome but he couldn't take matt down.. i think the second match would be interesting.. i'd still bet my money on matt!

Matt armbarred GSP in the 1st round of their last fight, yeah I know that now GSP is the much improved GSP but give us a break. GSP is a great fighter and he has a good chance of winning this fight but it is GSP that will entering this fight having lost decisively in their last fight, not Matt.

The bad thing about Matt Hughes is he think hes too good. He has been known to take people lightly. This is what really upsets me because the only reason he has been dominant is he was lucky to have such strong genetics. I don't think he has the heart and determination like other fighters because if he had any, he would take everyfight seriously and would continue to train no matter what, but he doesn't do that. For certain fighters, he would go train for less than some others and that doesn't make for a good training habit. Without his gifted genetics, would he be anywhere near the top of the welterweight ladder. The reason people like Georges St. Pierre and BJ Penn are probably up there are because they train hard, not because they have strong genes and Matt Hughes could really learn something from them instead of only training after he takes a loss.

I don;t know whether or not Matt Hughes takes his oppononets lightly and neither do you. If you want a textbook example of heart check out his 2nd fight with Frank Trigg, he was basically done after a groin shot and he submits Trigg a couple of minutes later. It is cool not to like Hughes or to want GSP (a great fighter) to win but these examples of all the reasons Hughes should lose are serioulsy lame. He does'nt look the way he looks because of genetics alone. The Militich camp is well known for seriously hard training and it looks to me as if Hughes takes that pretty serious.

Wether its the genetics or not, Matt Hughes is the best welterweight in the world. Keithpas has it right about the Militich camp, and with Franklin there they have three world champions. I would imagine that it takes alot of heart to stay on top as long as he has, and don't see anyone beating him anytime soon. Penn destroyed GSP in round one, and if Penn would have been in better shape we would be watching Penn vs. Hughes II. Hughes by submission in round 2.

I'd like to see GSP win it, but if he does, im sure Hughes will be coming after him right away, holding the title will be short lived for GSP (if he wins) :)

GSP is a great fighter!......but does he have what it takes to defeat Matt Hughes?...no way!!!! If BJ Penn were to be fighting Hughes again, the result would be the same as when GSP fights him in the rematch....Hughes wins..no doubt.

Although GSP could probably match Hughes on the ground he is going to keep it standing, the only way to win is he knocks Hughes out.

Is there another fighter that makes the ground game look more impressive than Hughes does? ....I would be tempted to say there isn't.
