Meanwhile, one small but tangible result of Hughes' office gig was subtle, but you may have noticed it at the UFC 162 post-fight press conference: Hughes made a common-sense point that got the UFC's new fighter dress code relaxed a bit.

Informed by an unnamed co-worker that fighters were expected to go to press conferences in a suit jacket, Hughes asked a simple question. "I ask, ‘well, what's Dana [White] wearing? You'll never have Dana out of a T-shirt. You know you're going to have a hard time getting these guys in a coat if he's sitting there wearing a T-shirt.' So they go, ‘Yeah, you might be right.' Then they change [the dress code] from a suit jacket to just nice clothes and covered feet, no flip flops."
How could Dana argue with that kind of common sense!
