According to Matt Hughes personal website:

I found out my results, I’ve got a totally torn MCL that is still attached
to my femur. I’ve got a partially torn PCL. They really think that the PCL
will repair itself and that MCL has a chance of repairing itself. So we’re
going to hold off on surgery right now. I am going to get a second opinion
this week, so that might change; but for now we’re going to hold off on
surgery.

Got more news to come this week, so there will be another blog entry the
middle of the week. -matt

Surgery or not, former UFC Welterweight champion Matt Hughes is looking at a long recovery for a knee injury he suffered fighting Thiago Alves at UFC 85. His hyped up fight with Matt Serra is not looking so good for 2008.
