"Recent comments by American Kickboxing Academy welterweights Mike Swick, Jon Fitch and Josh Koscheck about former UFC champion Matt Hughes and their desire to fight him have been misconstrued, say Swick and Fitch.

Both fighters said they would welcome a fight with the man who ruled their division and garnered praise by many pundits as the “most dominant champion in UFC history,” but also made it clear they respect Hughes and his accomplishments in the sport. "

If Hughes wants to be relevant again then he needs to take on one of these guys as all of them are near the top and above Hughes in the rankings. Hughes's days are numbered and he would lose to many of the guys out there like Swick, Koscheck, Fitch, Hazelett, Johnson and others.

I agree that if Hughes wants to stay relevant he has to have tough fights. But I also think if KOS, Fitch, and Swick want to stay relevant they need to be fighting each other and stop calling out fighters ranked below them.

Agreed. Once Hardy beats Swick Then KOS and Fitch need to fight. What happens if 5 team mates end up being the top 5 in a division? It is a joke and they should be made to fight or lose rankings in the UFC.
