First off, I want to thank all my sponsors for the last fight:
Second, I want to thank everyone for all the support that I had before, during and after the fight. I can remember during the fight that it was so loud I could barely hear my cornermen. I could hear them yelling behind me and I had to back up to understand what they were saying. I have always liked listening to my corner and I have always said that MY cornerman make it a team sport. Several forum members have told their stories about the weekend so here is a link to that: Boomer Tale – Denver
At the end of the month, Audra and I will head to Vegas to talk with DW and decide what to do next in regards to my UFC career. My wife says I’m going to retire and I can’t say I blame her. Back when my brother was still fighting, it was hard enough for me to watch him in the octagon; so I can imagine that it is much harder when it is someone you are married to in there fighting. But I told her that I will decide when I give it up. I just feel I have more to give. I’ve never been hit in practice and hurt and I think in my last two fights I’ve just been hit hard. Like I said, we will get it figured out at the end of the month.
I’m headed into hunting season now, so I’m still busy. I’ve had 2 weeks with the family so that has been great. Tater (Katelyn) my 21 month old and I have gotten to spend some good time together. Joey and Hanna are in school, so I’m not around them during the day. Mark’s in the field now, so I will tell Nate to snap some pictures of the work being done.
Like I said before, I want to thank you all for the support and I will know a lot more after BJ’s fight.
The UFC has made a very good DVD collection with a lot of footage shot at my house and several interviews on it. It should be available for sale right now, if you’re interested. Here is the link to the UFC’s promotional video for the set (it’s in hi-definition so it might take a while to load up): ULT-HUGHES-PROMO
