Matt Hughes says he is one step closer to retirement now

"I knew BJ was going to be in shape, but I didn't know he was going to come in with a game plan and really look for my tendencies. I think BJ knew I was going to come in throwing my jab and I think he had a game plan for that. He hit me with a hard right hand that I never saw coming. It's funny how styles make fights and I'm not at all like Frankie Edgar. So it just kind of stinks that BJ came off two losses and then ended up beating me in less than 30 seconds. I knew BJ was going to be tough that first round. I was trying to get him into the second and the third round where I could wear on him, slow him down and soften him up a little bit; but it just didn't go that way. I don't know what I'll do now. I'm definitely going to take the winter off and some of the spring. I had three fights this year, so I've just got some other things I want to do; but I will say that this was one big step closer to retirement for me."

hopefully he doesnt make the same mistake as chuck liddell and retires before he gets knocked out 5 more times

What is this? Matt Hughes being respectful and coming off as a nice guy?? Is this like one of those things when you come out of a coma with a complete different personality?

Guess he finally got the time for a country breakfast. Put him in a good mood.
