In an interview with Undeniable with Joe Buck (via MMA Junkie), Matt Hughes had some complaints with the UFC’s schedule, claiming it is too commercial now. Here are highlights:

On the modern UFC: “I think it’s too commercial. They’ve got fights darn near every week (on) one of the three channels they’re on, and I think it’s too commercial. I am so happy that timing worked out for me where I fought when I did. I really think that I fought in the golden ages.”

On the golden ages of UFC: “I started at UFC 22, and I don’t even know what my last one was – around (UFC) 110 or 115 or something – but I think I was in the golden ages. It was when people got together to watch the UFC. It wasn’t – because they’re so often now.”

On having a fight card every week: “They’re just not as special.”
