It has been more than eight years since former UFC welterweight champion Matt Hughes and twin brother Mark have competed in mixed martial arts at the same event. That era, however, may soon come to an end.

Matt, in a pre-fight media conference call for UFC 85 on Thursday, was posed a question he didn’t expect, that being about the possibility of his brother returning to the Octagon.

“This is an unexpected question,” said Matt, the elder brother – by five minutes – of the Hughes twins. “I do know that Mark is going to sign a contract with the UFC where he won't compete for anybody else. And that'd be right here coming up. That's all I can really tell you. That's all I can really comment on,”

Mark sports a 6-2 professional record in MMA, including a win at UFC 28, but hasn’t competed in nearly five years. Apparently poised for a return, Matt says that Mark doesn’t have a fight lined up yet, but is adamant about his return to the Ultimate Fighting Championship, a place Matt has called home for several years.

“There's no fight scheduled (for Mark), but he is going to sign a contract with the UFC to fight for them and nobody else."

Well I'll be damned. Another Hughes in the UFC.

Is it conceivable that he would be as good or better than Matt?

Yes... yes it is.

He'll never be able to reach the same standard as Matt, but if he fights like him he still should put on some good fights. They're twins so I personally think that if he was going to have made a splash in the MMA world it would have already happened.

This is pretty cool except I don't think we'll ever see a card with both of them on it (Unless Dana forces it) because I figure they'll still want to corner each other and that will be impossible if they both have to warm up and stuff.

it might just be passing of the torch with matt getting ready to retire with his brother then in the spotlight and him cornering him

It should be cool. He hasn't fought since 2003 though so it will be interesting to see how he does.

Not fighting does not mean not training... that is the question.. has he just not trained all this time.. or has he been training hard? that is what remains to be seen.
