5) Matt Hughes vs Royce Gracie
When Royce Gracie made his return to the Octagon after 11 years, few people believed he could actually compete against the highest level of competition in 2006.
What made things even worse for the Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu guru is the fact that he was facing welterweight champion Matt Hughes in his absolute prime at UFC 60. Gracie didn’t stand a chance.
It took Hughes just under five minutes to take the legend’s back and beat him about the head with endless strikes in what can be considered one of the most helpless efforts from a former UFC champion/tournament winner of all time.
