Matt Hughes' Submitted List of Opponents He Thinks Are Interesting (Humor)

This letter was intercepted by an anonymous fan on his way to the post office, I gave him 20 bucks, and a copy of Made in America: The Most Dominant Champion in UFC History .

In short, I purloined the letter, most insidiously. However with a slow market, and no Internet site to take this baby off my hands. I'm left to break this devilish news myself...

Here it is folks. Enjoy.



Dear Mr. Silva

I traveled to Tampa, Florida yesterday to listen to my idol George W. Bush give a speech as part of a motivational seminar that's touring the country. It was such an eye-opening experience, that I want to "supercharge my career" and "increase my productivity."

With this in mind this is the list of men I'd like to fight at UFC: 109 in February.


  1. Dennis Hallman

  2. Rickson Gracie

  3. Helio Gracie (dependent on weather we could reanimate him)

  4. Carlos Newton

  5. Royce Gracie

  6. Renzo Gracie

  7. Rodrigo Gracie

  8. Phil Baroni

  9. Carlson Gracie Jr.

  10. Cesar Gracie

  11. Rorion vs. Carley for a shot at me

  12. Gregor Gracie

  13. Masahiko Kimura (dependent on reanimation)

  14. Shannon Ritch

  15. Coolio

  16. Jose Landi-Jons

  17. DMX (if he agrees to fix the fight)

  18. Sean Salmon

  19. Ice Cube

  20. I'll box Dana White if he still wants to.

  21. If Fedor would fight blindfolded, with both his hands tied behind his back, i'd also enjoy that fight.

  22. TJ De Santis (He did armbar Brett Rogers after all)

Eventually I would like to fight Sakuraba, however he's not old enough yet. Maybe in a couple of years.

Thanks, Joe.

Here’s the Bible verse for this week:

Be not afraid nor dismayed because of the great multitude, because the battle is not yours, but God’s. (2 Chronicles 20:25)
