(‘Okay, now if you’ve gotten to this point, I’m assuming that either you’ve been slammed after being carried across the cage, or else you were the one who did the slamming. Either way, I’m fresh out of ideas.’)
The UFC has spent the last few weeks reacquiring old talent and signing the even older fighters they already have to new contracts that take them beyond their foreseeable athletic futures, so it only makes sense that they’d also go ahead and get former welterweight champ Matt Hughes to re-up. On his blog Hughes writes that he signed a new "multi-fight deal with the UFC, which is much like my old contract." We realize that the phrase "multi-fight" is pretty vague, but something about the way the UFC is stocking up on over-the-hill fighters who have no real chance at making a title run, it just seems suspicious.
Hughes said that he hasn’t been given an opponent or a date for his next fight, but that the UFC mentioned one possibility and it was "a person I’ve never fought before." That rules out Frank Trigg and Dennis Hallman. Former coach Pat Miletich is still an option, though. Just saying.
