Is Matt Hughes the only goat to turn back his goat successor?

    Can you think of another situation where the old lion was able to turn back the young lion? Im talking about the GOAT of a weight class beating the younger future goat of the same weight class. What a good performance and under rated win. It was the only non fluke loss GSP ever took. I know GSP came back and put him down twice but to finish a young monster GSP is impressive.

    Hughes was so awesome.

    I actually prefered him to GSP as far as watching his fights. Very exciting and powerful.

    i liked Hughes more than GSP too.

    he had an exciting way of wrestling, body slamming everyone and manhandling people like nothing.

    I’m guessing that you are saying that experience doesn’t count for much? Pretty naive.

    Agree. Hughes was amazing, and taking out the young killer/champ to be was a seriously impressive thing.

    Hughes was a monster - a former 5-defense champ in one of the deepest divisions, with 36 wins when GSP had only 7 fights

    Stipe Ngannou, if Ngannou ends up being great, Conor Holloway, Cruz Dillishaw (even though Cruz didn't deserve to win)

    Yes, Hughes was a great fighter but he had 2 asterisks, the losses to Hallman.

    lol not at all. im still trying to figure out if you are slow or just stupid. Are you an over sensitive gsp fan boy? grow a pair nancy. I got nothing but love for GSP. giving someone credit for beating "the young monster gsp" is not hating on him. i dont see how that is so hard to comprehend.

    Nog beat Werdum before Werdum went on to become the GOAT HW grappler and avenge the loss, like Georges did.

    Some would say Cruz/TJ. I don’t think TJ has done enough yet, but maybe if he beats Moraes, Cejudo, and another solid contender or two. (Some also say Cruz lost that fight, but that’s a whole other debate.)

    Nah. 2nd fight Nog way past his prime.

    GOAT HW Grappler is the one who armbarred 1/4 of RTT.

    Nuff´Said.
