Ummmm, question: is Matt fighting on a non-PPV card? The 23rd is a Friday . . .

You're right.

I was just about to ask if this was a rumor that I read on a FB page......guess not.

Later.

From Sherdog.com:

Quote:
UFC hall of famer Matt Hughes will toe the line against “The Ultimate Fighter” Season 1 winner Diego Sanchez in a blockbuster welterweight bout this fall. UFC President Dana White on Thursday revealed the matchup, though no event, date or venue was specified.

One of the sport’s most accomplished competitors, Hughes (Pictured; File photo) last appeared at UFC 123 in November, when he was victimized by B.J. Penn in a 21-second knockout at The Palace of Auburn Hills in Auburn Hills, Mich. The defeat snapped a three-fight winning streak for the Hillsboro, Ill., native, who turns 38 in October. A two-time NCAA All-American wrestler at Eastern Illinois University, Hughes has secured 35 of his 45 career victories by knockout, technical knockout or submission. His stellar resume includes wins over Penn, fellow hall of famer Royce Gracie, current UFC welterweight king Georges St. Pierre, one-time UFC welterweight titleholder Matt Serra, former middleweight King of Pancrase Ricardo Almeida, ex-UFC lightweight champion Sean Sherk and Pride Fighting Championships alum Hayato “Mach” Sakurai. Moreover, Hughes’ 18 wins in the UFC rank first all-time.

Sanchez will carry a two-fight winning streak into the match. The 29-year-old Albuquerque, N.M., native last competed at UFC Live 3 in March, when he eked out a controversial split decision against Martin Kampmann at the KFC Yum! Center in Louisville, Ky. A Jackson’s Mixed MartialArts representative, Sanchez holds notable wins over two-time UFC lightweight title contender Kenny Florian, reigning Strikeforce welterweight champion Nick Diaz and former Sengoku Raiden Championship middleweight kingpin Jorge Santiago. He owns a 12-4 mark inside the Octagon.
Matt's got more wins in the Octagon that Diego has fights.

Will Matt train with BJ for this fight? BJ dominated Diego so he'd probably have a lot of helpful information.

I would love to go. I think I would have preferred Vegas but I'll take what I can get. Have to see if Kelli wants to come and leave Hailey with my mom or if she'll want to stay home and send me solo.

I am thinking of taking my son Nicholas. He is a big Matt Hughes fan. He has his action figure and does not let him or Bj fight each other lol...

NICE! This fight has been a long time coming. I'm making plans now for Denver. I love Colorado and glad it's not going to be out of the country.
