Former UFC welterweight champion Matt Hughes gave Daron Cruickshank his props for emulating a move made famous by the UFC Hall of Famer.
During his recent win over Anthony Njokuani at UFC Fight Night 54, Cruickshank scored a takedown by lifting Njokuani up and running all the way across the Octagon before slamming him to the canvas.
Hughes was known for big-time slams on the likes of Carlos Newton and Frank Trigg.
After taking to Twitter to express his own excitement in accomplishing the feat, Hughes replied to Cruickshank.
@Cruickshank155 you the man!!!
