LOL @ Koscheck being bigger and stronger than Hughes
have you looked at their wrestling credentials before making an ass of yourself?
You quoted my post, and in doing so it surprises me that you didn't notice I said nothing about the wrestling credentials. I said "LOL @ Koscheck being bigger and stronger than Hughes." How you got wrestling credentials out of that I have no idea.
Anyway my point was that Hughes is and always has been a MONSTER 170. He's made a career out of man handling opponents with sheer power. It's that farm boy strength you're always hearing about. Hughes is still, and probably always will be for the rest of the sport's existence, one of the biggest and strongest 170 lb'ers out there. Koscheck's physique may look more impressive, but don't let anybody out there kid you into thinking Hughes isn't cock-diesel strong.
All things aside, hopefully you can see the meaning in what I'm writing here. I've said nothing about the wrestling credentials of either pre-MMA.
As for wrestling credentials in MMA, if they meant as much as some people think they do, well.. then Brock Lesnar wouldn't have gotten submitted by Frank Mir. Mark Coleman would still be the UFC Heavyweight Champ. Koscheck would have whooped GSP's ass. etc. etc. MMA is about Mixed Martial Arts, not wrestling.
