From Hughes’ official website:
Last week I went out to Vegas and I signed a multi-fight deal with the UFC, which is much like my last contract. I also brought up the fact that I wanted to do a hunting show and they thought that would be a good thing. They still have to find out who, where and when my next fight will be and I will try to post that info ASAP. Nothing is decided yet, so anything you might be reading on the internet right now is just rumors and speculation. However, one name the UFC did bring up is a person I’ve never fought before.
Hughes (43-7) topped rival Matt Serra by unanimous decision in his last fight in May, rebounding from back-to-back losses to Thiago Alves and Georges St-Pierre.
