Alright, revenge match time! “You killed my master!” Or rather, “you defeated my master”. After Matt Hughes defeated legendary MMA fighter Renzo Gracie at UFC 112, Ricardo Almeida, one of Gracie’s top students, apparently targeted Hughes and asked specifically for this fight. He seriously wants to avenge the loss of his instructor. Hughes, on the other hand, doesn’t think the same way. He’s not Gracie hunting or bearing a grudge or anything. He just wants to fight and win impressively against whoever the UFC puts in front of him. Just another day in the office.

And what a day in the office it was! After a few quick exchanges and getting comfortable, Hughes landed a clean left hook on Almeida’s jaw and toppled him to the other side of the cage. He immediately capitalizes, jumps on top of him, gets his head in a classic wrestling headlock, SQUEEZES, and puts him to sleep.

No kidding. He put a Brazilian Jiu Jitsu to sleep with a traditional wrestling hold. As Dana white wrote on his Twitter account: “Hughes is ****ing strong!! Never seen anyone go to sleep from that position!!” You got that ****ing right, Dana. That was exactly what I and everyone else was thinking. This was an extraordinarily impressive win indeed from the newly-inducted UFC Hall of Famer, proving once again that he has more than a few years of life in this sport.
