Matt Hughes recently went to the doctor to have his knee examined. His knee had been bothering him for quite some time now, but luckily his doctors say that his torn ligaments are not as severe as they thought it would be. Hughes may actually prevent surgery as there is a "chance of repairing itself."
Hughes recently fought Thiago Alves in London at the UFC 85 ‘Bedlam’ event. Although he lost to Alves via TKO-strikes, Hughes plans on returning to the octagon to fight Matt "The Terror" Serra just as Dana White had promised him. For now, he’ll have to deal with the knee issue and then he’ll be able to focus on the one fight he wants the most.
Here’s a snip from Matt Hughes over at his official website and blog:
I found out my results, I’ve got a totally torn MCL that is still attached
to my femur. I’ve got a partially torn PCL. They really think that the PCL
will repair itself and that MCL has a chance of repairing itself. So we’re
going to hold off on surgery right now. I am going to get a second opinion
this week, so that might change; but for now we’re going to hold off on surgery.
Got more news to come this week, so there will be another blog entry the
middle of the week.
