UFC welterweight Dan Hardy doesn’t care much for UFC Hall of Famer Matt Hughes.

“I respect him as a fighter, but as a person, I don’t respect him at all,” Hardy told MMAWeekly.com. Hardy has often decried Hughes for his personal life and approach to guns, hunting, and the like, but now he’s also targeting Hughes’ position as a role model in the sport.

Hughes recently announced his retirement from mixed martial arts competition and took on a new role inside as UFC Vice President of Athletic Development and Government Relations.

Hardy doesn’t want Hughes near him or other athletes.  Hear what else the Brit has to say…
