UFC Quick Quote: Matt Hughes has no interest in fighting a 'kid' like Josh Koscheck

"I find Koscheck calling me out kind of interesting and I actually don’t know why he is doing that. I was used to kids doing this when I was the champ, but as you know I don’t have the belt now and I’m puzzled as to why Koscheck wants to fight me and not the champion in the weight class. I have no interest in fighting Koscheck and, as he was showing everybody, he’s just a kid. As of yet, the UFC has never come to me and asked me to fight him."

-- Former 170-pound division kingpin Matt Hughes breaks down UFC 103 on his official blog, including the comments made by welterweight contender Josh Koscheck. After disposing of Frank Trigg, "Kos" was asking for Matt Hughes in a future fight, perhaps so he can cement his status as a serious contender. Reverend Hughes however, can't figure out what his beef is and chalks it up to him being 'just a kid.' What is Koscheck's beef? Is it a compliment to call out a "legend" because it's an honor to fight him? Or is he trying to push the once-great champ out of the picture? What's your take, Maniacs?
