Pic: Matt Hughes flies to Africa, kills giant antelope

Matt Hughes bags and tags an eland on his trip to Africa. See all the photos at his official website right here.

I have a feeling the "idiots" at PETA are not going to like this.

Former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Welterweight Champion Matt Hughes is enjoying life outside the Octagon, taking his son on a recent expedition to Africa. One that included bagging and tagging a bunch of exotic animals that can't be found in the woods of Illinois.

Dan Hardy does not approve.

Hughes has yet to officially retire, but hasn't seen action since being flattened by Josh Koscheck at UFC 135 last September. It was his second straight knockout loss, having gone to sleep against B.J. Penn at UFC 123 the previous year.

More pics from his wildlife warfare (via www.matt-hughes.com) after the jump.

Any hunters in our audience (besides Patty Stumberg) like what they see? Check out the rest of Hughes' gallery from Africa, featuring some pretty amazing creatures (all dead) by clicking here.
