UFC Quick Quote: Matt Hughes injury could keep him out seven more months

"Went to the doctor yesterday, he performed quite a few tests on my knee. With the results of the tests on my knee and from what I have told him, he definitely thinks the MCL and the PCL is rebuilding itself. The next time I go back up there, in a month to a month and a half, I will get an MRI and that way he can get a picture of the knee and he can see better what’s going on. So right now, I’m going to work out lightly, try and build up my quadricep as much as I can. Do nothing with the hamstring really, from what he said and he says possibly being able to fight in 6-7 months."

-- Former welterweight champion Matt Hughes provides an update via his official blog on the knee injury he sustained in his technical knockout loss to Thiago Alves at UFC 85: "Bedlam" last month. He elected to pass on surgery and let the injury heal on its own, which could keep him out until early 2009. There's no telling if his likely next opponent, Matt Serra, intends to wait that long to return.
