    I lost an AV bet to TheBonger so he decided to make me sport a picture of him at his latest family reunion.

    How about a farm boy vs farm boy battle - Hughes vs Speer? That way Matt can go out on top.

    I think Matt Hughes is done. I'm a fan of Hughes and have enjoyed watching him dominate for a while, but he just wasn't in the last couple of fights I've seen him in. Against GSP, he didn't have the same look on his face as he used to, and he didn't do anything aggressive at all. I don't think his heart is with it anymore, and he will retire when his contract allows. We will miss him. Some of us already do.

    On the other hand, I don't think he's done yet in the UFC. I would love to see him fight Serra and Karo.

    He's still one of the biggest names and is great for the sport. Many casual fans would follow him and bring more publicity to MMA in different orgs.

    if Hughes lost to Serra and got to fight the rubber match with Penn and lost that....I wouldn't be opposed to him having a few fights in the WEC. Sounds like something him and Zuffa could work out...Hughes fights a few up and comers in WEC and the WEC gives some Hit Squad guys fights on the undercard

    I wouldn't call it a downgrade, just a digress. It's a different crop of fighters, a new title, and I'm sure they would come up with the money. Personally, I would like the sport to grow as a whole and I think anything that would bring more attention to other orgs would be great.

    Couture, or Liddell fighting in Elite XE, M1, or strikeforce would be great for MMA as a whole. I think it hurts the sport that casual fans didn't know who Fedor, CroCop, Rampage, Wand, and Big Nog is. These fighters deserve as much money as possible but unlike boxing, they obviously are not getting the draw in the US like they would get around the world, especially Japan.

    If Dana white was going by popularity to consider pay like he does with most original UFC fighters, we would be screwed out of a Nog vs Silvia fight.

    I think Dana should now start thinking about the sport of MMA and less about the UFC. I think a mass merger would still be a great idea.

    There was an article on MMA Weekly where he specifically said he would never fight for another organization period.

    One thing we can get straight. I am family with the UFC. I will never jump ship. I will never go to another organization,” he declared. “This is just a word for you guys out there, don't even come to me with offers because I am not accepting them. I won't fight anybody, anywhere else, unless the UFC wants me to.” White couldn’t have been more pleased saying, “I love when he says that.
