Ariel Helwani at MMA Rated caught up with Matt Hughes recently. You know, just to chat. Hughes had some interesting things to say about how many fights he has left in him, his future with the UFC, and what he thinks of his upcoming UFC 85 bout with Thiago Alves.
Of course, he also talked about Matt Serra, who he’s said to be facing next. Watch the video yourself to see what he thinks of Serra (if somehow you don’t already know). Nobody can pull off the I’m-not-trying-to-be-disrespectful-but-you-suck act quite as well as Hughes. You younger fighters could learn a thing or two from a veteran like him.
Check out some footage of Hughes training for Alves at the HIT Squad after the jump. And yeah, there’s a dummy dressed up like a drill sergeant involved. Does that dummy remind anyone else of Sergeant Slaughter, or is that just me?
