Matt Hughes Isn't Ready To Retire | Wants To Go Out On A Win!

“Everything’s good on my end. Still kinda laid back. I have started to work out, so we’re sort of seeing how my body feels and this and that. But, as far as answering any questions about what I’m doing next or who I would be competing against next — I don’t know. Taking it back to Pat Miletich, who’s basically a brother of mine, he had a loss on his last fight for a long time, and I was on him, ‘Hey, get back in there!’ I know. I’ve sparred with the guy. I’ve wrestled with the guy. He’s a talent. So I was very happy for Pat to get back in there and get his hand raised and walk out. I’m under that mentality, so I definitely want to get in there and get my hand raised and then maybe call it quits. But I’m not the only deciding factor here. There’s my wife on the other end, there’s the UFC … so, we just gotta come together and figure out what’s going on.”

    Matt Hughes and Royce Gracie one more time. If Matt wants to walk out with his hand raised, fight Royce.

    Alright Matt wants a win..give him nick Diaz!

    • BobO says:

      Shart, That’s an insult to BJ who just knocked out Hughes. Change your underware bro, and then quit bouncing on Condit’s nutsack while you’re at it. Your head is slamming into the ceiling. 😉 ~BobO

    • Pijan says:

      Hate to say it but Nick Diaz would destroy Hughes. He’s more physical, a lot younger, has the better striking, and at this point Diaz would probably dominate the ground game too. It’s easy to hate on Nick Diaz but don’t do it so blindly, you only make yourself look like an idiot.

  3. Nick Diaz says:

    give him Nick “Mount Everest” Diaz

  4. Jeremy Lin says:

    Yes! Lin! Lin! Lin!

  5. slacker says:

    Maybe the winner of Shields vs. Akiyama? I think he would have a shot against either and a win against either would be a respectable victory to go out on.

  6. Don’t feed the trolls, people. Nobody in their right mind would give Hughes to Diaz

  7. Mark says:

    Give Him Dan Hardy

  8. Marc Hunt says:

    That’s some bullshit….Matt Hughes is a great champion and has a great legacy as one of the toughest SOBs to get in the Octagon. Why would he want to make a Roy Jones Jr move and fight a tomato can just to get one last W to satisfy is over-inflated ego. I thought the UFC was about challenging yourself against the best? Liddell and Couture didn’t take swan song fights and neither should Hughes.
