"I would love to figure that out, that blood thirsty kill freak. I can't stand the dude. ... The thing is, at this stage in his career, I know he's past his peak. I know he's not looked great in his last few fights, and maybe he's kind of winding down. I would love to fight him and, if he was willing to take the fight, I would by all means love to get in there and put it on him, but I'm not going to chase after the guy cause he has passed his peak and he may not want to a fight against someone who doesn't like him as much as me."
-- Let it be known that if you enjoy murdering animals, like Matt Hughes does, then Dan Hardy generally thinks you're a "bloodthirsty kill freak." Doing it with a purpose is fine but when it's just for fun? That's messed up. It's thanks to Hughes affinity for hunting that Hardy would like to do some headhunting of his own, inside the Octagon, of course. That's what he told MMAWeekly.com recently, at least. "The Outlaw" knows, however, the chances of such a match-up are slim, especially considering their respective spots int he UFC welterweight division. Hughes is nearing the end of his career with maybe one or two fights remaining while Hardy has lost four in a row and has a bout lined up against Duane Ludwig at UFC 146 on May 26 in Las Vegas. Nevertheless, how you Maniacs digging the idea of Hardy going at Hughes like a spider monkey?
