Tito surprisingly aggressive in the standup. He was more promising than the boring fighter that he eventually became.




exciting fight!

This fight was such a disappoint. Carlos was a local hero for us at the time. Was not a fan of Hughes and MFS after that.

The world still owes Newton for taking that belt from Miletich. Pat's a good guy, but holy fuark his title defenses were some of the most boring fights in MMA history.

I used to think that was a double KO, but now I don't really think so. the triangle was not on that tight

I still think he was out for a moment, but from the slam, not the triangle.

I thought at the time that he was out from the choke.

interesting.. yeah he did seem out of it after Newton released the triangle

however the triangle was not in tight at all.. but yeah you could very well be right. haven't reviewed the fight in a while

WWF at the time actually used the Hughes / Newton ending in one of their scripted matches. I thought at the time and still believe the only reason they hit the mat was because Hughes was going out and his legs gave out. As Diet Butcher mentioned Newton was quite a cult hero in Canada at the time.

By the way, Hughes was a late replacement for Anderson Silva in this fight. Rudimar Federico pulled Anderson out of the fight after Dana gave Pele's title shot in the new 185 division (a big rematch vs Dave Menne) to Gil Castillo after Pele had lost that summer outside of the UFC, possibly to Jutaro Nakao if memory serves. Anyway, this was the end of Dana working with the Chute Boxe team before any of them ever actually fought in UFC.

Fantastic Display of Grappling Skill this fight! That sequence in the beginning where Carlos smoothly sweeps Matt, then to scramble and reverse of position to standing, culminating with Matt Hughes devastating take-down, marvelous show!

There were rumors at the time of K1 orchestrating the demise of PRIDE behind the scenes. I wonder if that's what Sakakkibara was hinting at when he said there was "a lot of jealousy".
