Matt Hughes and BJ Penn first fought in 2004, where Penn shocked many fight experts with a decisive win. In 2006, it was time for their rematch. Again, Penn looked like the better fighter. He blocked Hughes' takedowns, beat Hughes standing, and exhibited a better submission game. However, Hughes persevered and in the third round he tied up Penn in a crucifix and pounded him until the referee stopped the fight.
