Matt Hughes 01 UFC 98 pressUpon retiring from fighting, Matt Hughes took on an entirely new role as the UFC Vice President of Athletic Development and Government Relations.

Much like his pioneering role as a fighter in the cage, Hughes is now learning on the job outside of the cage, trying to figure out how he can best help the newer fighters coming into the sport prepare for the various aspects of their career outside of actually fighting.

Hughes recently talked about his new role in an interview with MMAWeekly.com’s Ryan McKinnell. But, of course, talking with a legend of the sport who is so recently into retirement, they also touched on Hughes’ fight career and the “what ifs.”
