Matt Hughes apparently wishes to move up two weight classes, and wants his first fight at light-heavyweight to be against Mauricio â€œShogunâ€ Rua.
From the Matt Hughes web blog:
“Well, for a long time I’ve talked about going up in weight class and I’ve decided to finally do it. Only I’m not going up to 185, I’m going up to 205 to fight Mauricio “Shogun” Rua in June. I’m bulking up now and packing on muscle and I’m thinking that it will be nice to not have to cut weight for a change. I think it’s a great match-up for me and I’ve told Dana that if I win this, then I want a shot at the 205 title next.”
You have to think April Fools on this one, but then again Matt Hughes is a pretty serious guyâ€¦
