Hughes to control and gnp was very good. Not as concussive as Fedor's punches or as lethal JJ's eblows, Matt was just relentless. Hughes had the rare ability for a wrestler around that time to pass guard and once he got into side control he was brutal in his relentlessness
JJ, Hughes and Fedor were all great on the mat, could tap you and strike. Probably the top 3 offensive fighters on the ground for me
But where would Sonnen come in that list?
