Hughes Gets Slam,victory In Extreme Challenge 40


From the event’s promoter:


Hughes Gets Slam,
Victory in Extreme Challenge 40


      SPRINGFIELD, Ill. — When Matt Hughes emerged as one of the world’s top lightweights, it was his trademark body slams that drew the attention of fighters and fans alike.
      One of Hughes’ biggest fans has been Florida fighter Scott Johnson, who admits "Matt is my favorite guy to watch."
      Johnson got an up-close view of Hughes in action Saturday at Extreme Challenge 40 as he replaced Scott Bills as Hughes’ opponent in the main event. Bills withdrew due to illness a day before the show, but Johnson jumped at the chance to compete against the fighter he most admires.
      "I got the call on Friday and said yes right away," Johnson said. "It was too good a chance to pass up."
      Johnson, an extremely muscular fighter who has competed against the likes of Din Thomas, got to be on the receiving end of the Hughes slam and spent the first couple minutes under the former All-American wrestler. With just under two minutes left in the first round, Hughes landed a knee, then a big right hand that dropped Johnson to the mat. Johnson tried to get up, but said he couldn’t see out of his right eye and stayed down. Referee Bart Guyer halted the bout at 3:24.
      "He’s a really strong guy… no doubt about that," Hughes said. "I was pleased with my performance. I’ve been working a lot on my standup and I’m feeling more comfortable there."
      The event was held outside at the Multi-Purpose Arena at the Illinois State Fairgrounds. The next Extreme Challenge is July 13 in Davenport, Iowa.
