At UFC 34 Matt Hughes squared off against Carlos Newton for the UFC welterweight title (Newton had recently won the title from Hughes's coach Pat Miletich at UFC 31).
Early in round two Carlos Newton locks on a deep triangle choke, and Hughes, still a novice to the jiu jitsu game at this point of his career, attempts to power out and lifts Newton up onto the side of the cage. Their the triangle position was maintained in mid air with Newton's back to the fence when all of a sudden Hughes sends Newton crashing down to the canvas knocking him cold.
John McCarthy told a dazed and confused Matt Hughes that he won the match. Whether the slam was intentional or a result of Hughes starting to lose consciousness we'll never know, but the decorated welterweight title run of Matt Hughes began that day.
