Matt Hughes was the guest on the most recent edition of PWB’s Official Podcast Hotline with Lex and Ian. In a candid interview, Hughes addressed
On a potential match with Matt Serra :
“Right now, I’ve talked to Joe Silva quite a few times, and we’re looking at maybe January. He has told me it’s going to be Matt Serra, so I’m looking at January or February. That’ll give my knee plenty of time to heal, if it’s natural. If I have to go under the knife, I don’t know what my time frame will be”
On whether or not he was annoyed by Thiago Alves not making weight for their fight:
“I don’t know that I’d say that it annoys me. I just think it’s unprofessional. You know, here we are, we’re in a sport where you gotta make weight, and he doesn’t make weight, and he misses weight by so much. I think four pounds or something. So really, did he even try and make weight?
“If I ever happen to not make weight, I will die trying. It will never be four pounds over. It’ll be, you know, Matt couldn’t make weight because he ran so much he had to go to the hospital.”
On the Georges St. Pierre/Jon Fitch fight at UFC 87:
“I gotta be real honest. I was kind of bored with this match. It was the last fight of the night, and halfway in the third round, I got up, and I left the arena.”
