Matt Hughes has called out who he wants his next opponent to be and many won't be able to guess who that is. Matt Hughes has said that he only wants interesting fights and who has called out is definitely interesting.

Matt Hughes has not faced him before.

The fighter is not currently in the UFC.

The fighter is an expert in Gracie jiu-jitsu many may even say that he helped make it is what it is today.

So without further delay Matt Hughes has called out Helio Gracie. Of course Hughes was quickly informed that Helio Gracie passed away last year.

Hughes then asked "Well are there any other old Gracies that I could beat up easily?"

Writer's note: None of this is true but I hope you got a good laugh.
