Which MMA Fighter Will Test Positive For Steroids Next?

Matt Hughes Talks UFC 85, Retirement Rumors, and Licks His Chops Over Matt Serra

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?

I will say that Hughes is a better caliber fighter than Serra. As far as personality is concerned Serra seems like a genuinly funny and sincere dude, and Hughes (when he isn't quoting the bible) has the personality of a piece of cornbread. When he's trying to be funny it becomes very clear that if playing punchy-face wasn't a paying job he'd just be another slack jaw looking for a title shot at 2:30 am in the bar parking lot at the Saturday Night Drunk Fights.

Matt Hughes is a dickhead. He always wants to cry foul when things dont go his way.
I went to the UFC 57 (Chuck and Randy 3) fight.He was there to do a autograph session and while he was walking around the forum at the Mandalay Bay i asked him for an autograph.That dickhead told me no that there was an session for that and then walked 20 feet and another guy asked him the same thing but had a picture of Matt and Matt signed for him.Thats no way to be (professional). So at the autograph signing when it came to his part he asked who to make to and told him i didnt want his and just to pass it on down to Andre Arlovski

I really hope Matt beats Alves, and then destroys Serra. I really like Hughes
