Anthony Hamilton Believes ‘Inconsistent’ Todd Duffee Wants to Make Statement at UFC 181
ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. -- Approximately seven years ago, Anthony Hamilton watched in awe from his seat at the Mandalay Bay Events Center as Chuck Liddell outbrawled Wanderlei Silva and Georges St. Pierre submitted Matt Hughes as part of a star-studded UFC 79 card. At the time, Hamilton was little more than an athletic big man who had only recently begun to dabble in mixed martial arts. His professional debut was still nearly three years away. That night, as he sat next to his wife, Hamilton allowed himself to dream of what it might be like to punch the clock alongside a St. Pierre or Liddell.
