As he does whenever Dana gives him a call. Immediately when he said Dana called, I asked, "OK, who's next!" Cause Matt doesnt ever call to tell me about Dana's small talk. Matt told me that Dana asked him to fight BJ Penn. I laughed a little bit at Matt, making fun of him having to cancel some of his hunting trips. He laughed and asked what I thought of the match-up. I gave him my opinion, and he shared a tad bit of what his thoughts were, followed by the need to talk to his wife about it before getting back to Dana. That was two days ago, and now I see it leaking... I haven't gotten any confirmation from Hughes yet. But it is something being talked about and worked on. I'm sure there are talks on all three sides that have to be done before I get the green light!

Im a hugh fan of BJ... That said, I don't know if its in his heart to fight after the last one when Frankie took his soul...What a sad day it was in Hawaii when BJ came out with no fire in his eyes...If he comes out like that again, Hughes will dominate chapter 3 of this saga...
