HUGHES vs. PENN 3

UFC legends Matt Hughes and BJ Penn will square off once again this Saturday night at UFC 123 in what’s sure to be a welterweight battle for the ages.

The two first met at UFC 46 back in January 2004. BJ Penn took that fight, submitting Hughes with a rear naked choke at the end of Round 1. Two and a half years later, Hughes avenged the loss, pounding out BJ Penn in Round 3 of their fight at UFC 63 in September ’06. No, it’s time to settle the score.

Hughes spoke to MMA Fighting this week to hype the fight and said the following about:

His Attitude Going Into The Fight:

“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.”

This 3rd Fight Means “Winner Takes All”:

“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.”
