Dan Hardy Would Love to Face ‘Blood Thirsty Kill Freak’ Matt Hughes

Quote:
Former UFC welterweight champion and Hall of Famer Matt Hughes may have a lot of lifetime fans, but don’t count Dan Hardy among them.

The British born fighter first ran afoul of Hughes last year when the former champion posted pictures on Twitter of his latest hunting trip where he killed a bobcat. The pictures spurned a lot of responses both positive and negative for Hughes’ hunting for sport, and his response was pretty firm on how he felt about it all.

“Me and my brother love to shoot cats!” wrote Hughes on his Twitter page. “If you don’t like seeing dead animals, stop following me. I’m not even going to try and educate you PETA idiots.”

Hardy obviously fell on the side of the people that had a problem with Hughes’ hunting habits, and responded in kind.

“Look at what I killed. Aren’t I the man? This is the only thing I have found that cures my impotence,” Hardy wrote. “There is no justification for what he does. Shooting a wild cat for fun is a joke. I don’t have a problem for hunting if there is a purpose for it. I have never read anywhere being overran by bobcats though.”

Hardy went as far as asking UFC owner Lorenzo Fertitta for a shot at Hughes when he returned to fighting in 2012, but now that he’s matched up with Duane “Bang” Ludwig at UFC 146, it’s obvious Hardy’s wish was not granted.

Still, Hardy would love to get a shot at Hughes before the longtime champion calls it a career, and judging by his recent comments, there’s no love lost.

“I would love to figure that out, that blood thirsty kill freak. I can’t stand the dude,” Hardy told MMAWeekly Radio recently.

Despite his extreme distaste for Hughes personally, Hardy point out that he respects what the former collegiate wrestler did with his MMA career. It’s hard to deny the multi-time welterweight champion his due credit for what he did in the cage, regardless of personal feelings.

“I’d love to get a shot at him, but the thing with Matt Hughes is I don’t like him as a person, but I can’t help but respect him as a fighter. He achieved a lot and I enjoyed watching him fight when he was at his peak,” said Hardy.

“As a person, I can’t stand him; I wouldn’t speak to him if I had the option. But I watch his fights and I learn from them.”

Hughes has said recently that he’s got maybe one fight left in his career, which has spanned more than 14 years. With that kind of timeline attached to Hughes, Hardy isn’t sure he’ll ever get the chance to face him, but it’s on his bucket list.

“The thing is, at this stage in his career, I know he’s past his peak. I know he’s not looked great in his last few fights, and maybe he’s kind of winding down,” said Hardy.

“I would love to fight him and, if he was willing to take the fight, I would by all means love to get in there and put it on him, but I’m not going to chase after the guy cause he has passed his peak and he may not want to a fight against someone who doesn’t like him as much as me.”

Can't say I wouldn't like to see the fight.

Both of them leaving the UFC would be great.

One leaving isn't SO bad.

I think Hughes has finally figured out his career is over. When guys who have lost 4 fights in a row are calling you out because they think it's an easy win, you know it's time to hang them up.

LOL. It's no wonder why Dan Hardy gets offended by that when he's from the most liberal anti-gun joke of a country in the world AKA England. Animals have been killing other animals for millions of years for more than just food. Bobcats aren't an endangered species and therefore there isn't anything wrong with hunting them to control the population.

Hughes will take him down and finish him by submission without problem.

No. Hardy shouldn't be allowed to have this fight. I like him as a personality but he doesn't deserve a twilighting Hughes.

As far as his reasoning in this article, he's just trying to get people talking, but it will probably work!

Probably one of the few things I agree with. Hunting is what's creating a sixth extinction of our species; overfishing, wild animals, and basically consuming all of our resources. They should put Hughes, Brock, and the Trumps in a game show called "The Running Man."

Bon voyage!

Hmmm- staggeringly less violent crime in England vs. the US- The US is 13th on a list and almost all of the countries ahead are 3rd world/ war ravaged countries. Israel has less than half the number of persons killed a year per 100,000 than the US does- Kuwait has a fraction of the deaths per year than the US. England is a fraction of that.

I guess England is a joke- it's funny how much more advanced they are than the US in that respect. It's also funny to them I'm sure that they can have some peace of mind and walk down their city streets without the funny feeling that they might get shot by a car full of idiots with guns. Hilarious!

You know what would stop the knife crime over here in England? Giving the youths guns. That will solve it. How foolish we are to be so anti-gun.


Side note: Killing animals for fun is heartless. I'm sure I'll get neg rep'd for this, but it's my opinion.
