Interesting thread. I never saw this review originally and never read the book, but it sort of rings true for me and makes sense. I actually met Matt at a UFC after party one time several years ago - I wasn't hanging out with him - I was just at the party and able to observe Matt for the whole night (the party was in a hotel suite).

All I can say is the guy came off as a complete asshole in so many ways. I remember having a gut feeling that he was a total prick, but thinking I must be wrong b/c he seemed on TV like a decent, humble guy.

Well, it all makes so much more sense now.

Now, why is BJ Penn friends with Matt? He brings him on as a guest coach on TUF.

1 2 3 ACE - I knew it was supposed to be bad, but my God...

I've always been a fan of Hughes despite him at times coming off badly. There's no way I could be a fan of the guy described in that book though. Some of that stuff doesn't just leave you thinking that he's an arsehole, it leaves you thinking he's actually disturbed.
No offence but I genuinely don't know how anyone could be a fan of Hughes. The guy comes across as a proper Cunt Phone Post 3.0
