Every MMA fighter should take note of this odd case with former UFC welterweight champ Matt Hughes.

Hughes settled out of court last week on a case that dates back to the Friday before UFC 64 at Mandalay Bay. Jed Leist, a former police officer in Rockmart, Georgia, asked for a photo with Hughes during UFC's autograph session.

Who, Hughes, or the cop? 'Cause, personally, I'm thinking it's the cop.

This has happened in the world of music before.Supposedly people have done similar things to rock stars (inticing them to fight),then filing a law suit against them afterwards for crazy sums of money.

Hughes rules, I bet he gave the guy an autographed $20.

Hughes shouldnt have settled with him!

LOL at Baroni tho, he knew the reporter was tapping to quick and wanted him to get a real feel of the RNC, i very much doubt that injured his eyesight as it says, he didnt even go out ffs
