This will probably be the most difficult article I'll write.

Not because it took a lot of time, effort, and research, but rather that the man that Georges St-Pierre has/will replace as greatest UFC welterweight is my all time favorite fighter.Anyway, here it goes.There was no welterweight champion as dominate as Matt Hughes.

For a long time, he was unstoppable.His pick up slams? Legendary.His ground and pound? Vicious.From his UFC 34 title fight against Carlos Newton, the UFC and its fan were introduced to Hughes.

During the fight, Newton had Hughes in a DEEP triangle choke.

Hughes literally picked Newton up while being choked, walked Newton to his corner, and as he was just about to lose consciousness, Hughes slammed Newton to the canvas and rendered him unconscious.Hughes was the new welterweight champion.From that point on, Hughes went 13-1 in the UFC only losing to BJ Penn at UFC 46.

Hughes then locked up with a weary GSP at UFC 50, and dominated the young GSP en route to getting his title back.Matt Hughes and his UFC 50 bout was the reason I began watching, after all.The two would meet once more at UFC 65.

GSP dominated the world's greatest welterweight, and it was officially GSP's time to dominate 170.He hasn't looked back since.Since beating Hughes, GSP has taken Hughes' spot as the most dominate champion in the UFC.

Sure he had a minor setback with a shocking loss against Matt Serra, but I strongly believe that�we have never seen a fighter improve so much after a loss of that caliber.For the longest time, I still put Hughes ahead of GSP due to the fact that Matt was so dominate for so long.

Sure Georges is dominate, but he has had half the fights that Hughes has had.Maybe that has to change.For this article, I watched everyone of GSP's fights from his fight after his Hughes loss up until his UFC 100 fight with Thiago Alves.If I could sum up GSP's fights in one word?AMAZING.Single Page�12�
