I will eat my words, matt wins the fight, I thought for sure Gracie would take it...
I ment matt hughes
It was brutal, just brutal.
I am gutted.
I actually saw this on T.V. today, it was an excellent fight, glad I caught most of it.
Hughes by complete domination. I really thought he was going to snap Gracies arm. Well, we know for sure that the sport has evolved.
On a side note, Joe "Quick tap" Riggs could have at least tried to get out of the guillitine.
i knew hughes would win...now to collect my $50 on Tuesday from the saps at work....
ADVANCED MUSCLE SCIENCE STRONGEST ON THE MARKET

Yeah Hughes just dominated Gracie. I'm really looking forward to UFC 61 and those matchups.
Royce had little chance of winning. Royce winning is like saying Ray Leonard is coming out of retirement and beating Jermain Taylor or Winky.
Hughes finished the fight quickly and nearly got the submission - Big John said he could hear the arm popping.
What a great night of fighting! Every fight was just awesome.
Not surprised by the outcome at all. It served no purpose for the UFC is Gracie won.
Gracie didn't have a chance. I was thinking while I was watching, if they outcome would have been different if you pitted Gracie 10 years ago against Hughes..But, it probably would garner the same result.
Who the hell would even go for gracie? That old man didn't even stand a chance - he was dead when he walked into the octagon
The UFC must have paid him very well. If Gracie wins, then what, would STILL be thought of as one of the most dominate fighters ever, I dont think he would fight on a continuous basis. Since he lost, he has his first defeat in the octagon and has some what tarnished his rep. He's still one of the best, but I will always remember the time Hughes beat his ass. Gracie shouldve stayed away from UFC and continued to fight an occasional easy match over in Pride.
Poor Gracie didn't stand a chance.
Hughes is superhuman.
And no, the Gracie of 10 years ago wouldn't have done any better because if anything, he wasn't as good back then as he is now.
Gracie made 1.3M for this fight.Originally Posted by gresh
I really wanted Gracie to win

I heard that hughes popped for gear, any body know if there is any truth to this????
Royce is not much older than Hughes, only 7 years so it is not as if it was Helio fighting.
In my mind, the problems lies in that the Gracie's believe that BJJ is all they need to win. This is clearly not the case. Hughes was not needed to prove this, all one had to do was watch Sakurabu.
Was he tested??Originally Posted by revodrew
I haven't heard anything about it.
