Thought Matt Hughes was done? Think again! Despite being in the twilight of his career, winning just three of his last seven fights, and suffering back-to-back knockout losses, Hughes believes that he has more to give to the sport.
To be honest, I’m not going to tell a living legend no. It’s not as if Hughes has been lacking in skill in his recent bouts. In the opening round of his September affair with Josh Koscheck, he was giving the former-No. 1 contender fits with his jab.
Clearly, he isn’t 25 anymore; but at the same time, it’s not realistic to expect a 38-year-old man with over 50 professional fights to continue fighting at an elite level. Regardless of his age or the outcomes of his last two fights, if Hughes says that he has another fight left in the tank, then I say we give it to him!
Here is a look at some potential welterweight options who Hughes should look at for his final fight in the UFC.
