Hughes On Penn: There's Three Fights On The Line In This 15 Minutes

Former UFC Welterweight Champ Matt Hughes will take on longtime nemesis BJ Penn this weekend at UFC 123 in what will likely be the final bout between the two as their trilogy will come to and end and one will be decided the winner. For Hughes, this fight could make or break the two fights prior to that:

“I'm going out there and having a good time. I just go out and have fun. I try to cut all the pressure away. I'm not going out there trying not to lose. I'm trying to win and having a good time. One more paycheck this year will make my wife happy and get her off my back. The way I feel is that if I lose this fight with BJ, it's like losing three fights. And if I win this fight, it's like wining three fights. It's the final of the trilogy. There's a lot on the line. Three fights are on the line for this 15 minutes BJ and I are going to do battle.”
