UFC fighter Matt Hughes has a message for the 'idiots' at PETA

And it goes a little something like this:

"Me and my brother love to shoot cats! If you don't like seeing dead animals please stop following me. I'm not even going to try and educate you PETA idiots."

Former UFC welterweight champion Matt Hughes has been using the wide reach of social media to flaunt his latest kill -- much to the chagrin of some animal lovers unfortunate enough to be caught in the cross-hairs of his Twitter timeline.

Hughes (45-9), who was bagged and tagged by Josh Koscheck at UFC 135 last September after getting skinned by B.J. Penn back in 2010, knows what it's like to be both predator and prey. Fellow UFC welterweight Dan Hardy has his sights set on the fading legend, asking ZUFFA boss Lorenzo Fertitta for the chance to "smash him in the face."

Take a number, Mr. "Outlaw," a good portion of the "idiots" from the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) are already in front of you.
