What would the Welterweight landscape look like without Matt Hughes?
I mean, look at the resume:
A win over Georges St-Pierre, a win over Matt Serra, one of the most famous KO victories in the sport at Carlos Newton's expense, five (count 'em, FIVE) successful defenses of the UFC Welterweight title in only his first reign as the champ, two UFC wins that came at the expense of two Gracie Family members, and... a Technical Submission win over a Renzo Gracie pupil that won FIGHT OF THE NIGHT?
Count the win that nabbed him his second UFC Welterweight title reign and the win that handed his all-too-familiar foe at UFC 123 (some dude named BJ Penn, who is widely considered to be the greatest Lightweight in the sport) his first and only loss by strikes, and you might bump that up about six or seven title victories.
How did he do it?
I give you his 10-step program to becoming the greatest damn Welterweight that this sport recognizes.
