In comments made recently on his official blog, Matt Hughes is rather puzzled over Josh Koscheck wanting to fight him after his UFC 103 win over Frank Trigg. Hughes says he has no interest in fighting Kos and thinks he showed everyone "he's just a kid".

I'd pick Kos to knock Hughes out within 90 seconds if they fought.

LOL KOS wouls beat Hughes in the 1st round for sure and yeah Id probably agree that he'd KO him in the first 90 seconds.

I don't doubt Kos would destroy hughes at this point but thats exactly why this is such a cowardly statement. Rather than calling out some one he's lost to (Thiago Alves, Paulo Thiago, George St. Pierre) or some one relevant in the division (Mike Swick, Jon Fitch, Anthony Johnson) he's picking on older past-their prime fighters with big names.

Leave Frank Trigg and Matt Hughes alone!!!!

If he wants to be a contender or a champion he needs to put aside his fears of loosing, forget about not wanting to fight friends, and call out someone who poses a challenge for him.

Josh is 31 years old, just four years younger than Matt. Strange, it's not like he's some young hot-shot rising star--he's a well established top 10 WW, probably top 5. I think Matt just doesn't like the idea of being called out.

If this fight does happen, I want to partake in an avatar bet with you. I certainly don't see the fight going to a decision. The fight, in my opinion, would never go to the ground. Koscheck would dominate standing. Early KO.

Its odd because you quoted me but still didn't read what I said
.
"DON'T DOUBT KOS WOULD DESTROY HUGHES AT THIS POINT".

This also translated as I DO NOT DOUBT THAT KOS WOULD DESTROY HUGHES AT THIS POINT.

Or, KOS WOULD DESTROY HUGHES.

Okay, so I misread your post. There's no need to be rude about it.

Hughes isn't going to get another title shot without fighting guys like Kos.

I don't understand why Kos would want to fight Hughes other then to say I beat a legend. He is at this time the better fighter and if something where to happen and he would lose....let just say the bad out weighs the good

Hughes being hughes. I realy dislike this guy. KOS has had a ton of fights and at this point in their respective careers would smash Matt. Maybe thats why Hughes doesnt want to fight him. He know he'll be sucking dust from the Bud Light logo

That Kid would stomp Hughes, an easy KO in the first round for Kos, He should be get a rematch with Thiago which he would win. Paulo Thiago guys not Alves lol
