BJ Penn and Pat Miletich Help Prepare Matt Hughes for Josh Koscheck

Former long time UFC welterweight champion, Matt Hughes has brought in another couple of former champions to help him prepare for his UFC 135 co-main event bout with former UFC welterweight number one contender, Josh Koscheck.

Hughes, speaking via ESPN.com, said:

“I brought in a couple of special guests – B.J. Penn and Pat Miletich. Being around such great fighters and coaches is humbling, No. 1; and No. 2, it was a great learning environment because we all learned off each other. I’m around the other guys a lot — Jeremy (Horn), and Matt Pena, and DaMarques (Johnson) — but with Pat and B.J. being around there as well, they would bring up different situations, and then Jeremy would add stuff I’d never seen on top of that. All I had to do was show up, not do anything on the mat, and I was gonna sit there and learn. If I wanted to, I could have charged admission and people would have loved to just sit there, watch and soak it in.”
