Hughes is once again the welterweight champion beautiful armar transition goes to show Matt Hugh is not a wrestler like I said he’s able to evolve see Matt Hugh is on the one side damaging with punches and great technique he throws a bunch of punches St Pierre goes for Kimora the counter to that is a step over the head and go for a straight armar by switching over that was a real combination great Jiu-Jitsu uh flow here’s another look from the other side again punching you can see St Pierre locked up to Kimura but he let mat Hugh pass his legs matw stepped over the head and hit an armar that is perfect answer for Jiu-Jitsu for Jiu-Jitsu and who do you credit part of that too when you’re Matt Hughes you part credit that to Jeremy Horn exactly Jeremy Horn one great Jitsu guys there was another look at the spinning sidekick that landed on Matt Hughes I think obviously it hurt him for him to dive in with a bad shot right off the bat um ladies and gentlemen referee John McCarthy has
