    A Recent Penn Interview


    “I just gave up training professionally for a fight,” he said. “Either you’re a fighter, or you’re not. And every time I train professionally I just get so burned out that I don’t want to do it anymore. So I’m just gonna be in shape and train kinda like how I used to train when I won the jiu-jitsu world championships – just go there in the night, train, and go home. I’m not gonna go push myself to go running and do these thousand rounds of sparring and stuff. I fight best when I’m having a good time and after my last fight I was so burned out by the time I got there that now I’m just gonna take it easy and have fun.”

    Sounds like his conditioning may be an issue again. I was picking Hughes before and definitely sticking with him now.

    This doesn't sound like a very solid game plan. I understand feeling burned out from overtraining, but this sounds like he might come in a little under prepared.

    Matt Hughes keeps the title this time.

    Either that or it's misinformation and he's playing games.
