Rashad Evans to Matt Hughes: Your Style Is Antiquated

via rashadevans.tv

Before Matt Hughes's fight with Ricardo Almeida at UFC 117, Rashad Evans called out Hughes for not keeping up with the modern game. After the fight, fans were looking for Rashad to eat crow. Instead, he used the power of Twitter to explain what he meant when he called Hughes "antiquated."

I said that cuz he changes his stance based on how he plans 2 fight.. That's not high level. I think Hughes is a legend & a great fighter but I still think he regressed as a fighter. He gives away his game plan at the Start of every fight.. If he wants 2 wrestle he goes southpaw if he wants 2 stand up he goes conventional stance.. When u do that u limit what u can do & your opponent knows how u plan on attacking.. The name of the game is deception.. But Hughes is a legend if I do half of what he has accomplished I will b happy.. But he is not above being analyzed sorry Hughes fans it's part of the game.
