UFC Hall of Fame: Matt Hughes
Two UFC welterweight title reigns, seven successful title defenses and victories over a who’s who of two different eras of MMA made Matt Hughes a shoo-in Hall of Famer. The teak-tough wrestler from Hillsboro, Illinois, defeated Carlos Newton to annex the UFC 170lbs for the first time and was still a factor in the division at the time of his final bout a decade later. In between, he defeated the likes of Sean Sherk, Frank Trigg, BJ Penn, Georges St-Pierre, Royce Gracie, Matt Serra and Renzo Gracie. Still considered by some to be the greatest welterweight of all time, Hughes retired with a 45-9 record.
