Matt Hughes at UFC 123The fight that began it all.

Matt Hughes won his first UFC title more than a decade ago by slamming Carlos Newton unconscious at UFC 34. Caught in a triangle choke prior to the finishing slam, Hughes was dazed and confused, taking a few moments to realize that he had just won the UFC welterweight championship, but it eventually set in and kicked off a legendary career.
