I vote no. He was the UFC champ in a green era of MMA. Sure, he was a legit NCAA wrestler and had black-belt level jiu-jitsu. But his striking was lousy. I don’t think he should be in the top 10 list of welterweights. I think the following guys can beat Hughes. 1. GSP 2. Tyron Woodley 3. Johny Hendricks 4. Ben Askren (Better wrestling credentials.) 5. Josh Koscheck 6. Thiago Alves 7. BJ Penn 8. Demian Maia (Bad style match-up for Hughes.) 9. Carlos Condit (Maybe.) 10. Rory MacDonald (Maybe.) 11. Rick Story (Maybe.) 12. Darren Till (Maybe.) 13. Stephen Thompson (Maybe.) 14. Robbie Lawler (Maybe.) 15. Kamaru Usman (Maybe.) Also, I think Jon Fitch, Jake Shields, Nick Diaz, and Rousimar Palhares would be very competitive fights for him. Well, I’ve got 8 people that I think for sure would beat Hughes, and 11 that might be able to get the job done. 170 pound division has improved significantly since 2006, and I think numerous fighters could beat him. What do you think?
