Dana White believes retirement is in the cards for Matt HughesPosted on September 25, 2011, 08:41 PM by Trent Reinsmith
On Saturday night Matt Hughes lost his second straight fight via first round knockout, falling to Josh Koscheck at UFC 135. Hughes had the advantage early, attacking Koscheck with left jabs, the same punches that Georges St-Pierre used to break Koscheck’s orbital bone at UFC 124 back in December 2010.
As the first round ticked down, Koscheck hurt Hughes, eventually ending the fight via hammerfists with one second remaining in the stanza. Following the fight Hughes said he was not going to retire, instead saying he wanted the UFC to put him on the shelf and see what happens.
At the postfight press conference Dana White addressed the comments Hughes made in the cage, saying “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.” – For more visit MMAMania.com.
