UFC Quick Quote: Anderson Silva comments on potential fight with Matt Hughes

Anderson Silva ufc 77

"I would love to fight Matt Hughes if the UFC asked me to. He is a great fighter, and those are the people I want to fight."

-- Current UFC Middleweight Champion Anderson Silva tells that he would look forward to a potential fight with former welterweight champion, Matt Hughes. Before that can happen, however, Hughes would most likely have to defeat Matt Serra for the 170-pound title at UFC 79: "Nemesis" on December 29. This match up was first proposed by Hughes earlier this year as long as Rich Franklin was not the 185-pound champion. With a middleweight division currently light on marketable and worthy challengers, other options like this might have to be explored to test the super talented Brazilian.
