    Hughes beat a lot of average fighters and undersized fighters and also was demolished in multiple title fights.
    Everything beside demolished in multiple title fights. can be argued, but me for me it ends there. When Silva gets thrashed in a title fight we can bring this argument up again.

    2 other all time great champs outside the UFC are Wanderlei Silva and Nogiera. (of course Wand had a lot of undeserving Japanese opponents, but he beat a lot of good guys too)

    Not sure why Fedor got brought into the debate about greatest UFC champion but oh well, whatever. I actually enjoyed the debate, Zapp taking on all comers. Zapp does make a compelling case, I have to admit. Greatest UFc champion by far is easily Anderson Silva. Hughes was pretty damn good too, as was Ortiz and Lidell

    Adolf, I addressed this from a UFC-only standpoint and then included Fedor from an MMA standpoint. No reason to limit it only to the UFC, especially considering how many fighters have fought in Pride and the UFC.
