With “Nothing Left To Prove” Dana White Wants Matt Hughes To Retire | UFC NEWS

“I want Hughes to retire. Hughes has nothing left to prove. If you look at the guys who helped us build this company, Hughes was one of them, Chuck Liddell (too), it’s hard to finally say it’s over.If He’s with us forever anyways. Hughes is one of our guys. He can keep the door open forever.”

UFC president Dana White told the media during yesterday’s UFC on FUEL TV 5 media event that he would like to see, former UFC welterweight champion, Matt Hughes retire from active competition.

Having gone 3-2 in his last five bouts, with wins over the likes of Matt Serra, Renzo Gracie and Ricardo Almeida is it fair to call for Hughes to shelf his gloves when his only losses in that span came at the hands of division standouts Josh Koscheck and BJ Penn?

    Dana needs to shut the f_uck up, this decision is for Matt and his couches to figure out.

    • Yep says:

      He should probably get off his couch and talk it over with his coaches too.

    • CMUSMC says:

      Your right why should Dana needs to shut up. What does he care he can make money of Matt giving himself pugilistic Parkinson’s. There is only one documented case in MMA so far Dana needs to back off trying to prevent this stuff. Compassion for your friends is for cry baby pansies. Dana just trying to control lives, I bet if he had the power he would take away there freedom to fight and make those decisions….. Oh, wait a second.

    Give him a few more fights if he wants em. Maybe hell concentrate on avoiding the headshots and get some gnp/sub wins.

  6. Josiah says:

    if hughes cannot add anything to his arsenal(specially on the standup) than i think its all over for hughes too. i hate seeing him lose.

    Maybe Dana can throw Hughes AND BJ a joint retirement party after Dec. 5th.

  8. TheWholeTruth says:

    Matt Hughes is a redneck, arrogant, innocent animal killing piece of crap. A pure Yankee. Please fight again so someone can knock you the hell out just like BJ did. I dislike this guy more than chael sonnen. His stupid comments on TUF was the reason why Rashad Evans was getting alot of boos during his early career. Redneck! Ffvvhhh…!!!

    • Aaron says:

      Hey man, a yankee is a northerner. First off.
      And secondly, an animal killer? He likes to hunt.. we hunt in America. You better be a vegetarian or I’m gonna hypocrite bitch slap you.
