According to Stephan Bonnar on the latest installment of ESPN’s MMA Live, former UFC welterweight champion Matt Hughes will retire following his UFC 98 bout tomorrow against rival Matt Serra whether he wins or loses.
“I have heard it from Matt Hughes mouth that this will be his last fight win or lose.”
The comment has fueled speculation that if Hughes follows through with the promise and does indeed retire, he’s likely to be one of two new inductees to join the UFC Hall of Fame in July.
