Why does Matt look 2′ tall in this vid?

I have never heard Matt speak with such humility, calmness and respect. It’s great to hear.

Much respect to Matt, he is a classy ambassador for the sport. Still loved seeing BJ knocking him out in 21 seconds :) but hes a good guy and hope he does well against KOS

I agree with Aban5. He really seems at peace in life. And that is why he can seize the moment and pull off things in fights that he wasn’t doing a lot of previously (abundance of leg kicks, and arm choke). For that reason I think he may beat the precocious young Kos.

Wow. I’ve NEVER liked Hughes…he comes off like a likeable and respectable guy here…

He is still a redneck, but I must admit he seemed quite normal in the interview.

@op_of_faith – I felt the same way, till I met him in Omaha, NE. SUPER nice guy. I didn’t even notice him at first, I was checkin’ out his wife. ;)
Then I saw him, chatted with him and now am a fan.

WAR HUGHES!!!!! Couldn’t pick a better opponent to submit, hopefully.♠

looks like Mat has calmed down a bit and gotten back to his humble roots. He was a bit of a dork there, for a while.

Matt is the man! A humble man from the Midwest with Midwest values. Plus he is one of the greatest fighters of all time. He represents the UFC with class and he does his family proud.

Thank you Matt for all the memories, especially when you damn near cried trying to verbally tap from that GSP submission…I nearly laughed for a month after that LOL

Common sense! Says, in 9-23-2011 at 22:53:36 from    

Word of advice Matt…If you still love it like you said you do, don’t retire because your wife wants you to!!

GetSome Says, in 9-23-2011 at 23:32:19 from    


Hughes is laughing at you because he is set for life and you still live in your parents house. He is a respectful guy who deserves respect, so shut it.

FedorFailsAgain, why do you enjoy watching people lose so much? Not trying to pick on you, but life sucks when you’re so negative. I’m just saying…
