UFC Quick Quote: Matt Hughes on the future of Matt Hughes

Matt hughes

"I'm not gonna come out here and be somebody's highlight reel. It's just not me. I just have to go back to the drawing board and see what's going on, see what I want to do. I've got to see what my family wants to do and I've got to pray on it. Dana White and the UFC have treated me like family, so I've got to see what they want me to do and I've got to see where my heart is at.... Do I want to fight Matt Serra? Yah, I do. But am I going to die if I don't get to fight him? No, not at all. There're bigger things out there than fighting Matt Serra."

-- Former welterweight champion Matt Hughes talks about his fighting future via after his lopsided submission loss to Georges St. Pierre at UFC 79: "Nemesis." It seems like the retirement talk (real or contrived) always surfaces after major events. See Chuck Liddell and Rich Franklin. Therefore, if St. Pierre defeats Serra I'd find it hard to believe that the UFC wouldn't book Hughes-Serra for mid to late 2008 (depending on the health of Serra). In fact, Hughes himself intimates as much right here.
