UFC 34: High Voltage
Hughes to Face Newton

Friday, November 2nd, at the MGM Grand

Matt Hughes
Three-time UFC veteran Matt Hughes has signed to face UFC Welterweight Champion Carlos Newton at UFC 34: High Voltage.

Hughes, a Pat Miletich protégé, has a record of 2-1 in the Octagon and 24-3
overall in MMA. He is a top-five ranked welterweight, and has won seven straight fights.

After nearly a year’s absence, Hughes returns to the Octagon to avenge Miletich’s loss to Newton at UFC 31. "It puts a little anger in my heart. A little driving force," said Hughes.

  • Punishment In Paradise Sneak Peek

    I don’t know about you, but I love to hear what matches promoters are planning, even if a lot of them do not pan out by fight night. Brennan Kamaka just released this tentative card and it already has some interesting matches. Eugene Jackson will come off of his recent loss to Ricardo "Cacharrao" Almeida in UFC 33 to face Hawaii’s own Niko Vitale. Don’t count Vitale out, remember Vitale came in as an underdog and handily dispatched Todd Medina. Tim Lajcik, Jackson’s training partner, will accompany him to fight an, as of yet, unnamed opponent. You can bet Lajcik will have something to prove after getting KO’d by Marcelo Tigre recently in a Pancrase tournament. Another great match pits Pete Spratt, who fought a war with Ron Jhun at the last Warriors Quest, against the new and improved Thomas "Wild Man" Denny. Sparks should fly as both guys like to bang and both are well versed at getting off the mat and back up to their feet. And of course the Warriors Quest champions, Cooper and Jhun will be back to defend their titles along with some great local talent on the under card. I will let you know as more news on this event becomes available.
