UFC Quick Quote: Hughes vs. Silva sometime in 2008?


"If Rich [Franklin] loses then I would move up and fight Anderson [Silva]. I would never fight Rich."

-- Former welterweight champion Matt Hughes echoes previous statements in a recent forum post on his official Web site that he wants to fight for the middleweight title provided Rich Franklin is not the champion. "Ace" will challenge incumbent 185-pound king Anderson Silva in November for the middleweight strap. Hughes also has a title fight coming up in December against current 170-pound champ Matt Serra.
