UFC president Dana White believes that the next step for former UFC champions Matt Hughes and Forrest Griffin should be retirement. White informed a number of reporters during his usual post-press conference media scrum Thursday.
Hughes (45-9) last competed against Josh Koscheck, suffering a knockout loss. He is 18-7 in his UFC career, and stated after the defeat that he would think long and hard about his future.
Griffin (19-7) is the original winner of The Ultimate Fighter. He has gone 10-5 inside the Octagon, and is coming off a decision win over Tito Ortiz.
"Hughes is one of those guys that, I absolutely, positively want Matt Hughes to retire," White said (thanks to MMAjunkie.com for the quotes). "I would like Forrest to retire. There's nothing left for Forrest to prove, either."
