Matt Hughes is not yet ready to leave the Octagon, but a "Chuck Liddell job" looks appealing.

UFC Hall of Fame inductee, Matt Hughes, admits that he’s not quite ready to leave the sport that paid his bills for the past 13 years. However, his family has a different opinion on what should happen after his UFC 135 match against Josh Koscheck. But while Matt Hughes insists that the UFC 135 result will not determine his choice, he said that UFC President – Dana White – offered a job where he could “stick around and get paid to do nothing.”

However, that doesn’t mean that Matt Hughes is ready to take the position just yet. His love for action, the hunger to be the best, the camaraderie of his teammates and training partners are still one of his source of joy in every aspect of MMA. But he also admits that the 21-second loss against BJ Penn at UFC 123 made him consider all possibilities. Regardless, he wants nothing more than to end his career on the strength of a win. Still, he hopes that his competitive drive doesn’t led him into hanging around too long.

The Ultimate Fighting Championships pro Chuck Liddell is pondering a future wanting of mixed martial arts or a future replete with brawl battles.

To retire or to run for another light-heavyweight title–that is the question. The question whose answer still evades Chuck Liddell. Although it is all up to his choice.

Here is a glimpse of the veteran’s dilemma: “I don’t feel like there’s anything left to prove. I still love fighting, but there’s a lot that goes into it. Maybe it might be time. I’m just not sure yet.”

It could be that these thoughts of resting from the sport has been provoked by UFC president Dana White’s urging for him to retire.

Liddell currently commented on this in an interview. The fighter has been running a PR tour for the last couple of months. To retire or not to retire: the answer, he said, will be an emotional decision. This will include his self-assessment of his remaining prowess. He ended by giving himself a probable due date: I’ll probably decide sometime in September, when I have time to relax.”
