Matt Hughes just wants to keep having fun against BJ Penn at UFC 123

That's all the former champion really waaaaaaaaaaants ... some fun (via Montreal Gazette):

"These last couple fights, I’ve really, really had a good time. The walk-out, in the locker-room. It’s all just been extremely fun. I think I’ve found a way, and I can’t explain it, where I’m just having a good time out there. I’m just having fun with it.... I don’t know who would be in front of me [in regard to a future title shot]. I don’t know who would be behind me as far as on the ladder for the title shot. I’m still fighting because I still enjoy getting in there."

A refreshed Matt Hughes, who is apparently really enjoying his current three-fight win streak, provides some insight into his current state of mind as he prepares to take on BJ Penn for the third and likely final time at UFC 123 in two months. The most dominant welterweight champion of his era, Hughes now does what he does because it's a good time. He's not concerned with adding another belt to his collection, just another Hawaiian pelt to hang above his fireplace. Is Hughes in for yet another fun night on Nov. 20 or will "The Prodigy" rain on his parade in "Motor City?"
