Hardy: ‘Self-proclaimed Christian’ Matt Hughes is not ‘my kind of person’

Thursday, September 27, 2012

So you just mentioned different ethics, Roy Nelson, different ethics also with your old friend Matt Hughes, who just been to Africa shooting animals, which didn’t go down very well at your end?

No, it didn’t go down very well anywhere really, from what I can tell on the internet. I don’t really understand how you fly out to Africa, look out on the savanah, look at those animals and go ‘You know, I want to kill that.’ I can’t make sense of that in my head. For someone who’s a self-proclaimed good-guy Christian, it just doesn’t calculate. He’s getting his morals mixed up somewhere. He really needs to have a look at himself and question what he’s doing.

Hunting for food, that’s one thing, but going out and shooting…I mean on that blog he was out there for what, two weeks? And he shot fifty animals. I don’t think he’s gonna eat that, let’s be honest. He’s not my kind of person.
