Matt Hughes and Rich Franklin Planning Summer Returns to UFC

UFC hall of famer Matt Hughes and fellow former UFC champ Rich Franklin are targeting summer returns to UFC action.

Hughes (45-8) recently told HDNet’s Inside MMA that he’s planning to return to the Octagon at the end of summer or early fall as the 37-year-old is admittedly winding down his career, but wants to go out with a win after suffering a 21-second KO to BJ Penn in November.

Meanwhile, Franklin (28-6) told MMAjunkie he wants to fight again in June or July after dropping a decision to Forrest Griffin at February’s UFC 126, but is leaving his opponent up to the UFC at either middleweight or light heavyweight.
