Undecided about future, Matt Hughes heads to Hawaii to help BJ Penn prepare for Jon Fitch

Former UFC welterweight champion, Matt Hughes speaks about his future in the sport of mixed martial arts, admitting he’s not sure if he’ll ever sign another contract with the UFC and in a remarkable turnaround is on a plane to Hawaii to help former long time rival, BJ Penn prepare for his UFC 127 bout against Jon Fitch.

Hughes, speaking via ESPN, said:

“I don’t know if I’ll sign another contract with the UFC. I would have to talk to my wife. I’d have to talk to Dana. I wouldn’t call it a retirement. It wouldn’t be out of the realm of possibility for me to fight two or three times. I have said I’m going to fight one more time for the last three fights. I meant it. I really have.”

Penn, posting via his personal site, said:

“One thing is for sure about Hughes!! He’s coming to help me train for Fitch!”
