The end for Matt Hughes?


10:37 AM ET 12.04 | Former long-time UFC welterweight champion Matt Hughes suffered an upsetting 21-second knockout defeat in a rubber match against BJ Penn last month at UFC 123 and, according to a post he made on his personal blog, the loss could mean the end of mixed martial arts competition for the decorated veteran.

Even though a 21 second KO to Penn is not a good thing, he can still get out while People have a Positive Vision of him...

Perfect time to get out. You don't want to go on the Chuck Liddel route.

The writings on the wall.

MMA has become too advanced for him. He couldn't keep up. He will always be one of the greatest but he didn't evolve when the game did. You really can't be one dimentional anymore.
