Props: UFC 112 post-fight press conference

Quoteworthy:

"I've got three more fights left on my contract. I don't know how much longer I'm going to stay fighting. I'm 36 years old. I had a lot of changes over the last five years ... so, uh, I still love to compete. I'm a lucky guy. When I go to the gym every day I'm super happy. I have a great crew with me and wherever I go to train. As long I still love to compete inside the Octagon and as long as I enjoy working out, I'll still be here."

Former welterweight champion Matt Hughes sheds some light on his fight future in the wake of his third round technical knockout win over Renzo Gracie at UFC 112: "Invincible" from the Concert Arena on Yas Island in Abu Dhabi last night (April 10). He indicates that he has a few fights left, but that the end could be near if he loses his desire to get in the gym and train. Hughes is the winner of two straight, which means that he can still do his thing when called upon. But is he willing (and capable) of taking on (and defeating) the younger competition such as Josh Koscheck, Jon Fitch and/or Mike Swick -- all of whom have called out Hughes in the past -- or should/will he be matched up against those who have similar years in experience and age?
