Matt Hughes Admits UFC 135 Fight Against Josh Koscheck Could Be His Last

Long-time UFC welterweight champion, Matt Hughes could very well be heading into the final fight of his career as it is the last one on his ontract with the Las Vegas based promotion against Josh Koscheck this weekend at UFC 135 in Denver, Colorado, admitting his wife has already told him he’s done.

Hughes, speaking during a conference call with MMABay, said:

“The outcome of this fight won’t really matter, to be honest. After this fight, win or lose, doesn’t matter, I’ll talk to the UFC and we’ll figure out what we want to do. My wife tells me I’m done fighting. We’ll see what I feel like, and we’ll see what the UFC wants to do. It’s competition. I think that’s what drives your top athletes in the UFC is the fact that you love getting in there against one other person and mixing it up. I don’t have to rely on four other basketball teammates to score a basket. I’ve just got to rely on myself. The fact that it’s just me and another person competing in there, that’s my big drive.

“I consider myself a lucky man. I love going to the gym every day, twice a day. I love traveling with my buddies. All in all, it’s a great lifestyle.”
