Dana White on Matt Hughes: “I’m pretty sure he’s going to hang it up without saying retiring.”

UFC President, Dana White speaks on what’s next the former long-time welterweight champion and UFC Hall of Famer, Matt Hughes following back-to-back first round TKO defeats inside the octagon, adding it’s a possibility that this was the last time we’ll see the legend compete.

Dana White, speaking at the post-fight press conference, said:

“I think he’s going to retire. I just don’t think Hughes wants to say the word retire, is what I think. There was a lot of talk that this was the last fight of his contract, I don’t know if that’s true or not because he’s a guy I have never worried about last fights or whatever but, I just talked to him out in the hallway and he’s going to fly out to Vegas in the next month or so to sit down and talk. But I’m pretty sure he’s going to hang it up without saying retiring.”
