Matt Hughes and 5 Fighters Who Dana White Should

In the co-main event of UFC 135, Matt Hughes was knocked out by Josh Koscheck at the end of round 1. 

While basically everyone and their mother expected Hughes to lose his 54th professional fight, some fans held out hope that the former welterweight king could at least be competitive.  

Despite no such luck, Hughes said in the post-fight interview that he would ask the UFC "to put me up on a shelf," but he is not retiring.  

The next day, UFC president Dana White said that he was very confident that Matt Hughes would retire after his recent loss.  

Hughes, already a UFC Hall of Famer, need to call it quits after being knocked out in his past two fights, and losing four of his past seven. 

If Hughes decides otherwise, White may need to "Chuck Liddell" him into retirement, or convince him that the risk is not worth the reward after several devastating losses. 

Here are a few other fighters who could benefit from the Chuck Liddell treatment.
