Dan Hardy: Matt Hughes is a blood-thirsty kill freak, I would love to fight himPosted on March 18, 2012, 10:55 AM by Anton Gurevich
"That blood thirsty kill freak. I can't stand the dude. ... The thing is, at this stage in his career, I know he's past his peak. I know he's not looked great in his last few fights, and maybe he's kind of winding down. I would love to fight him and, if he was willing to take the fight, I would by all means love to get in there and put it on him, but I'm not going to chase after the guy cause he has passed his peak and he may not want to a fight against someone who doesn't like him as much as me." - mmaweekly.com via the UG.
Once again, former UFC Welterweight title challenger Dan "The Outlaw" Hardy expressed his desire to fight Matt Hughes, this time labeling the UFC Hall of Famer as "blood thirsty kill freak". In his interview with MMAWeekly.com, Hardy stated that perhaps a passion for hunting "is the only cure for Matt Huhges' impotence", claiming that there's no justification for what he does to wild animals.
Both fighters are currently on a losing streak inside the Octagon; Hardy is 0-4 starting with his fight vs. Georges St. Pierre at UFC 111, while Matt Hughes suffered two back-to-back TKO losses to BJ Penn and Josh Koscheck. However, the fight between the two could still generate a lot of interest from MMA fans around the world, especially when the trash talk is getting better with every interview.
