UFC legend Matt Hughes has dodged a major bullet -- TMZ has learned the champ will not be charged with a crime for allegedly breaking a woman’s nose during an incident at an Illinois bar back in April.
TMZ spoke with the Illinois State's Attorney ... who told us there was not enough evidence to prove the fighter committed a battery when he allegedly shoved another man into a female bystander at the Trails End Bar and Grill in Taylor Springs, IL.

Hughes actually talks about this story in his autobiography. His brother and him were at a frat party when his brother opened up the fridge of the frat and took some food out of there. One of the frat brothers saw this and told him to stop. Mark Hughes (Matt's brother) apologized but then the frat brother went and got 3 of the biggest members of the frat to confront both Mark and Matt. They ended up getting into a scuffle and that's when the window throwing incident occured. The two brothers started to rush out of the frat but a bunch of the brothers were already at the front entrance trying to stop them. Both of them ended up having to fight their way out; Matt talks about how he would drop a frat boy with one shot to the face and before he knew it; another one would pop right in front of him and he would have to deck that guy as well.

I have no clue if this is true or not so maybe someone here has an idea, but one day at work my friend, who attended Eastern Illinois at the time, came in with someone he had met at the school who claimed to have gone to college with Hughes. Hughes was one of my favorite fighters at the time so my friend figured I would enjoy the story this guy was telling, but apparently during college Matt liked to get rowdy and didn't get along with the frats. The guy said one night he witnessed Hughes get into it with a group of frat guys at a party and single handedly threw each one of them through the front window of the frat house. Again, I hope someone with inside knowledge can confirm this, because I thoroughly enjoyed this story; but I had no clue who the guy was, so it could have been total bull.

 He wasn't charged, true, but that doesn't make him not guilty.  I went a step further and proclaimed his absolute innocence.
