Matt Hughes: retiring?

Undeniably, Matt Hughes plans to play out his final matches and most likely, end his career with UFC. Is Matt past his prime? Should he end his extraordinary record early? personally, I think he has a lot more fight in him, but who knows?

There's already a thread up about this. I'd say there's not much more for him to accomplish other than a defeat of a much deserving GSP and maybe a P4P farewell bout for the title against Anderson Silva.

Ya as much as i'd like to see him fight Anderson Silva, he does owe BJ the rubber match.

What is it that is going to be on your mind when you're on your death bed? Will it be the tedious years of 9 to 5, or the memory of some great acheivement. Maybe a moment you stood in glory to the applause of millions.

a Lotta guys do good for a while and lose, So I Don't buy into the he would've stuff...

as far as fights go. certain guys give other guys a tough time & fits, bj is that guy for hughes....

Who knows what happens saturday or in the retirement talk?? I Just think that bj beat hughes then pulled a money ploy, disappeared, came back, Got Beat!!!! I Think he's gotta fight others now to earn a title shot at whoever is there if he earns it....

Hughes & gsp?? If hughes is to lose, IMHO He gets a Immediate shot at a rematch, if gsp losses, I think he has to fight others to get another shot, Let's say bj & gsp?? as a start to another title shot at the title holder?? whomever it may be...

I really have no interest in that fight since Hughes is talking retiring and I prefer the best fights on his way out.
