AKA gives Hughes some of his own medicine

By Steve Cofield

We've seen one bully confronted, back down this month and now a fun situation is developing between Matt Hughes and the fellas at American Kickboxing Academy in San Jose. Does it mean another "retirement" on the way? Probably not. It's doubtful that Hughes will walk away from the sport like Quinton Jackson did because he's getting beating up verbally, but the former welterweight champ needs to save face and challenge one of the three AKA fighters who are calling him out. Josh Koscheck, Jon Fitch and Mike Swick are legit top 10 UFC welterweights and it's getting to the point where they're laughing at Hughes (pictured choking an overzealous fan).

Swick told Cage Potato, AKA will keep calling out Hughes because they know he'll never step up to fight:

"We knew he wasnít going to take the fight before we called him out. We -- me and Fitch -- actually told Koscheck to do that," Swick said talking about Koscheck's postfight challenge at UFC 103. "Fitch has asked for him before and then I asked for him and the UFC told me I wasnít going to get that fight. So before Koscheckís fight we were talking and we just said, ĎHey, why donít you try it and see if heíll fight you."

Swick said the AKA guys are just toying with Hughes:

"Thereís no real motivation anymore to fight him. We know heís not going to agree to it. Itís just a game now. He wonít take a fight with any of us and weíre just going to keep continuously calling him out."

It's actually kind of sad to see Hughes, who for years was the bully on the block, back down to the AKA guys. His only comments about Koscheck's challenge were to say he didn't know why the AKA fighter was calling him out:

"I find Koscheck calling me out kind of interesting and I actually donít know why he is doing that. I was used to kids doing this when I was the champ, but as you know I donít have the belt now and Iím puzzled as to why Koscheck wants to fight me and not the champion in the weight class. I have no interest in fighting Koscheck and, as he was showing everybody, heís just a kid."

Pulling out the kid card on a 30 year old? That's it? I miss the days when Hughes would verbally undress Frank Trigg, Georges St. Pierre or a poor newbie on The Ultimate Fighter.
Not sure if this was posted before because its from sep 29 but i searched it and couldnt find it. Still found it entertaining enough to post cause its funny that AKA is bullying Hughes.

They'll all dismantle Hughes, and it's nice to see a UFC veteran, such as Hughes, to take the high road and realize it.

I'm a Hughes fan, but the only one he really has a chance against in Swick. Koscheck and Fitch are both better wrestlers and Hughes is too old school to last long with either. I think he could take Swick. He'd wait out one of his flurries, blocking everything, then double leg and slam him then grind out a decision.

Oh, definitely. Matt Hughes has incredible standup, no way Swick could hang with him. Hughes would only take it to the ground after blocking each and every one of Swick's strikes matrix-style, to prove that he can beat Swick anywhere the fight ends up.

that being said, I agree with him to a point, Swick would get LnP'd if he fought Hughes.

4 or so years ago yes, now... probably not. I think hughes is close to throwing in the towel.

I can see where you're coming from, but I can only assume that from training with Kos and Fitch, Swick would have all the TDD he needed to keep Hughes standing ala Thiago Alves style. I do however think Hughes has better jitz than all three of 'em. He has a mean crucifix.

I may be one of the few, but id like to see Hughes have one last good run before he retires. That dude used to have that same sort of aura that Anderson Silva and Fedor are rocking, the "damn, nobody can touch that guy" aura. I know he has no chance in hell of getting the title, but id at least like to see him string together a couple of wins at the end of a great career.
