Matt Hughes Not Ruling Out Move Up In Weight

From the Fan Club Q&A this past weekend in Columbus, OH. Props To for getting the quotes:

“When I was champion, I always thought about moving up, and actually I was going to do that before I did 'The Ultimate Fighter 2' if Evan Tanner would have beat Rich,” Hughes said during this past Thursday's UFC Fight Club Q&A in Columbus, Ohio. “I would have bumped up to 185 to fight Evan Tanner for the show. That was the deal. The winner of Franklin and Tanner was going to be the other coach, and then us coaches would have fought again.”

“I still would toy with the idea of moving up to 185 (pounds) to face Silva,” Hughes said. “But I've got to square away things in my weight class before I do that, though.”
