He holds victories over many great fighters such as Carlos Newton, Renzo Gracie, Matt Serra, Sean Sherk, George St-Pierre, and Royce Gracie too name a few. When visiting Ottawa Matt hughes conducted a special MMA(Mixed Martial Arts) seminar at K2 Martial Arts. This exclusive class was limited to a lucky 50 participants who were treated to first hand knowledge from one of the sports greatest competitors.

He was so patient and thoughtful, he made the rounds connecting with each student on a personal level.
