It's been a long road, but it seems former UFC Welterweight champion Matt Hughes' fighting career has finally come to an end. MMA fans last saw him over a year ago in a losing effort against Josh Koscheck at UFC 135. Although he had some moments of success, Hughes was eventually knocked out in the last second of the first round. After a year of reflection, he's decided it's time to hang up the gloves.
The Iowa Daily Gate has the story:
I’ve not announced my retirement, but right now it looks like I’m fully retired. The UFC still treats me well, so I can be retired. It’s just funny, when God puts you on a road, you don’t know where you are going. I have all the faith that he put me there, and I have to thank him from that.LINK
I didn't put this in the news thread because it's not official.
