Listening to this right now and Matt's really cool.  I could not answer some of these questions without losing my cool.

 

I'd be screaming 'Voted The Fuck Down!' and 'You Have Ignored This User' really loudly many times.

 

Being a celebrity would absolutely suck worse than anything in the world.  For real.

sub for AM. Curious how Matt is these days. He had a lot of ups and downs. Mostly ups though.

Very cool Q&A. One thing I thought was really weird was how that one dude phrases his question about the Newton fight: Did you kill Newton?

Odd. Maybe he meant to ask if Hughes thought he killed him?

-when asked who won more fights growing up, him or his brother, Matt answered, "whoever was more pissed"

-when asked about Randy's statements and mentioning Hughes' job offer, Hughes advised that he'd basically been retired for a year and had been talking with Dana about that position and prepping him for about a year.

 

THE BEST PART-

-When asked about the Lee Murray incident, Matt was in England fighting Carlos Newton a 2nd time but wasn't at the bar. However his brother Mark was, and per Mark Hughes-

"One of Tito's guys playfully rear naked choked one of Miletech's guys, Tony Fryklund(Miletich) not seeing the humor, wanted to take up for his friend and pushed or hit Tito's buddy whom started the playful choke. When Tito caught wind that one of Miletech's guys hit his buddy, Tito went fast towards Miletech guys and Lee Murray had his foot out or got bumped, and Lee Murray felt cornered and hit Tito with a 1, 2 dropping Tito. Said it sounded like a bag of hammers falling."

Reid chimed in later adding that the bus that escorted all the UFC fighters to the bar didn't pick them up, so they were all outside standing around and when the police showed up, Chuck Liddell, LIKE A BOSS, went up to a random pretty girl and said, "Would you like to have breakfast"?, to which she replied with a smile, "Yes". Chuck Liddell put his arm around his new woman friend, and walked right past the cops.

-When asked about if there was any fights Matt would've liked to have had. Matt explained how him and Rich Franklin were Tuf 2 coaches and were friends but if and when Franklin fought Evan Tanner, if Evan Tanner won, Matt Hughes was going to challenge Evan Tanner and unify the belts. Matt Hughes, LIKE A BOSS, added, "If I was going to fight Evan Tanner for the Middleweight belt, I was going to fight him at 170 to make a point. I'm the welterweight champion, and I'm here to take your belt".

 

I fucking LOVE Matt Hughes

 

Hughes vs Royce Gracie

Hughes vs Trigg 1 and 2

Hughes trilogys with BJ Penn and GSP

 

He's been in some memorable battles

I thought it was funny that Matt didn't deny GSP was on steroids.

I can't remember exactly what his response was but it was something like "he's never tested positive". Translation = Georges takes "plenty" of steroids. J/k :) Phone Post

Matt, even in his old age, still has no manners... Between this and reading his book, I just don't like this guy.

Seems like a super nice guy.. Hes not too bright.. and if he is the one that UFC is sending to important places like NY to make them want to allow them to have events, they prob should bring others to do most of the talking.

He had no idea what the question meant about mental health. He truthfully had no clue what was asked half the time and just answered with stuff that had nothing to do with the question.

I doubt the UFC is intending on sending him out alone to represent themselves, with the types of answers for these basic questions.

I hope people don't take my comment as bashing him. He seems really nice and was as honest as possible. I just think that when they go meet the officials from a state and they ask why is going to run the security? Matt answers, you see us out there, we can handle ourselves.

It's only a matter of time before he gets himself into another bar scuffle, gets sued, and/or gets arrested. Phone Post

I've never been the biggest fan of Matt as a person, but I thought he actually came off really well there. Don't understand the dude in this thread ragging on him.
