RKing85 - I remember on the boards there was a ton of people who thought BJ was going to beat Hughes.
Upset for sure, but no where close to one of the biggest of all time.
I dont remember that.
Also, BJ did dominate Gomi the fight before but that was before Gomi was the Fireball Kid and no one knew who he was either. The fight before that, BJ had a draw with Uno (even though he shoulda won 3-2).
Conversely, Hughes was a rampage, beating Trigg, Sherk, Castillo, Newton and Sakurai.
Again, this is the only time in history a fighter has gone up in weight to dethrone a sitting, reigning undisputed champ and one who was also a roll like that. It is easily one of the biggest and it wasnt be close dec. It was a first round sub.
