If anyone's earned the right to pick and choose opponents, it's Matt Hughes. Dude fought anyone who was put in front of him for a very long time. Strikers, bjj guys, wrestlers, good matchups, bad matchups -- it didn't matter.
How would Matt Hughes' career stand to be advanced by a fight with Koscheck.? In his last four fights, Kos has alternating wins and losses, with the most recent defeat coming by knockout against a guy nobody even heard of.
Now he beats Trigg, a guy Hughes mauled twice -- in Trigg's prime, I should add -- and Koscheck thinks he can call out Hughes? Come on.
I'm not even a Hughes fan, but I respect him. Koscheck, Fitch and Swick, who have yet to achieve anything approaching what Hughes has achieved, should show a little respect themselves.
