Little has been heard from Matt Hughes since the UFC Hall of Fame fighter fell to Josh Koscheck in the final few ticks of the opening round of their bout at UFC 135. His second knockout loss in a row, Hughes has openly discussed the possibility of retirement from the ring though implied in a post-fight interview he wasn’t quite ready to give MMA for good.

Though nothing official has come down yet, UFC President Dana White has been clear in his desire to see Hughes call it a career before he tarnishes his legacy or, even worse, suffers a life-changing injury.

White spoke out on the matter again earlier today after a press conference relating to UFC 136 where he reiterated his stance on the matter and said he expected to meet with Hughes in the near future to figure things out.

“I’d prefer he didn’t, White explained when asked by MMAFighting about the possibility of Hughes heading back to the Octagon for another shot at victory. “I’d rather see him retire. I get to this point with these guys – him, Chuck Liddell – these guys who dominated all these years and are a big part of growing this sport. What’s next?”

Hughes Unsure About Post-135 Future

The outspoken executive questioned the point of Hughes continuing to fight, referring to the former welterweight champion’s already-fat bank account and past success in the ring.

“We’ll see how he ends his career. But what’s the point? You’re going to go for another title run? You just lost. You lost by knockout. Let’s hang this thing up and do something else together,” White stated. “As much as you don’t want to deal with it, this is a young man’s game.”

Hughes holds an overall record of 45-9 with 35 finishes and has yet to lose a decision in his decade-plus stint in the sport. Among the numerous notches on his belt are wins over Matt Serra, Sean Sherk, Chris Lytle, Frank Trigg, Royce Gracie, BJ Penn, and Georges St. Pierre.
