UFC 117: Matt Hughes keeps beating the Gracie family

Matt Hughes swept the entire Gracie family.

With wins already over Royce Gracie, Matt Serra and Renzo Gracie, the UFC Hall of Famer finished off the entire family by submitting Ricardo Almeida at UFC 117 in Oakland.

Hughes (46-7) tagged Almeida (12-4) with a left hook that dropped the "Big Dog." Hughes moved in and immediately looked to grapple. He used what looked like a north-south choke and submitted Almeida.

It was a rather uneventful welterweight bout beyond that one punch and subsequent choke. 

Are there any other Gracies left to fight this guy?
