"I am a big fan of Ricky Hatton. He is a fantastic fighter. I could get him up to speed on the ground wrestling part of it, while he could take advantage of his boxing talent."

"He could make a big difference in the lighter categories... A lot of boxers have trouble putting themselves in the situation where they are going to get choked and taken down. But if he can learn the ways of UFC then he could go a long way. He is a tremendous fighter and has a lot of heart. There is no doubt he could make a tremendous impact with his heart and determination in the ring."

Ricky Hatton, who hasn't fought since losing to Manny Pacquiao, had also talked about switching to MMA in the past:

"It is all action, proper fighting. They are going the right away about it to get people interested. There is a concern in boxing that UFC is taking its place. People seem to get more value for money."

"UFC would be right up my street, I used to kick box so maybe I would be all right."
