Jeff Hughes was planning on delivering a headline-making performance at UFC on ESPN+ 16 in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, but his heavyweight bout against the returning Todd Duffee drew headlines for less-than-satisfactory reasons. Hughes (10-2 MMA, 0-1 UFC) and Duffee (9-3 MMA, 3-2 UFC) went toe to toe from the very start of their main card clash at Rogers Arena, and a thrilling heavyweight slugfest appeared to be on the cards. But an innocuous incident late in the round saw Duffee call on the referee to halt proceedings after a perceived eye-poke. Replays of the incident were inconclusive, but following Duffee’s claim that he was seeing double in his left eye, a doctor was summoned, and the fight was waved off and declared a no contest . It was a frustrating way to end what looked set to be an entertaining fight, and nobody was more upset than Hughes, who felt that the bout was beginning to go his way after being briefly dropped early in the contest
