Community Lounge, Introductions and General Discussion Discussion, Video of the Hughes vs Gracie fight in General Discussion; Here is a little treat for those that did not get to see Hughes AWESOME POWER
i havent watched any UFC fights in the last several years. i remember when gracie was basically the king, man that guy owned everybody. is this his son or something? i swear hoyce gracie would be too old for this kind of fighting at this point. im probably wrong.
gracie was always my favorite though. i remember when he beat this wicked scrawny and pale guy in like 7 seconds with a pretty gross arm bar that ended up either dislocating the guys shoulder or breaking his arm.
this video didnt seem like the same gracie i remember though.
for the most part, i didnt like this fight, but the fact that hughes didnt rip gracies arm out with that arm bar amazes me!
Gracie is only 39 ,and he was undefeated,until NOW !!!! ha ha
I knew Hughes would overpower him ,
Like Gracie says ,"I built diz house" ,well buddy it got torn down and remodled by Matt Hughes
Gracie was not himself because he was scared of what was going to take place
I predicted this fight would go to Hughes. Royce was a god among men in his day, but nowdays UFC fighters are stronger and more well rounded then they used to be in Gracie's day. Nothing but respect for both fighters, both are legendary.
I imagine Hughes trained harder for this fight then he ever has before. I missed the live fight because I was vacationing in Cabo. Thanks for posting the video!
