The former UFC welterweight champion Matt Hughes is coming off a recent win against Renzo Gracie at UFC 112 in Abu Dhabi. With three fights left in his UFC contract, Hughes talks about how much he loves working out and competing in the octagon. Nonetheless, he is unsure how long he’ll continue fighting now that he is 36 years old.
Hughes has two consecutive wins over Matt Serra and Renzo Gracie. Is it time for Hughes to retire after his fight contract is up or should he renew with the UFC and keep on fighting in the cage?
From Matt Hughes:
“I’ve got three more fights left on my contract. I don’t know how much longer I’m going to stay fighting. I’m 36 years old. I had a lot of changes over the last five years … so, uh, I still love to compete. I’m a lucky guy. When I go to the gym every day I’m super happy. I have a great crew with me and wherever I go to train. As long I still love to compete inside the Octagon and as long as I enjoy working out, I’ll still be here.”
