UFC 127: Matt Hughes Helps BJ Penn Prepare for Jon Fitch

"B.J. Penn had texted me a couple of weeks ago to see if I had some time to come out and train and get him ready for Fitch. After that initial call, I checked my schedule, said I could come, and had him send me Fitch’s last five fights."

"I think we got some good training in. I’d love to sit here and tell you what we worked on, but I just can’t."

"It was a great experience for me. First off, I got to train with BJ; I think we would both say that we’re a lot alike. And number two, I got to spend some quality time with my daughter. I’m on the road a lot and usually my family is at home. This time I was gone for nine days and got to take my four-and-a-half-year-old daughter with me."
