For all the people who were practically in tears when matt got hit by a train, and claimed to be his "biggest fan," should really read this book.  

I did,  years ago.  And let's just say I was NOT a fan afterwards..... Randy's book was kind of like that too,  but not nearly as bad as matt's.  

Matt Hughes,  morally,  is a piece of fucking shit. What was written in that book is the tip of the iceberg. Fact.  

Listen snowflake - I like Matt Hughes because he picked people up and dropped them on their fucking heads - not because I think he’s a saint.  This whole sport is filled with dirtbags and dickheads but I don’t care as long as they keep entertaining me for what I pay for.

You pay for it? Sucker.

Never read it - only clicked on this thread because I was hoping to get more updates on his recovery.

The only book worth reading is Chael’s because he rips on everybody in this sport.

 


Forrest's books were readable also.

ONly read Forrests first book. Loved it. Actually, I thought they were all readable. Basically written on a 5th grade level. Ive read Chuck, TIto, Forrest, Huges, COuture, and Penn. Enjoyed every read. Hughes is definitely the worst person of that group. 

Still wish him well in recovery, and hope that he comes out a much better person.

Too Rude - I dunno. Most of this stuff doesnt seem as bad as some make it out to be and some of it seems really skewed and misrepresented.

I was always a huge fan of Hughes, still am I guess, but Im a fan of the fighter. Im a fan of the shit he does in the cage, and unless hes raping kids, or killing babies, I dont much care what he does outside of that.

Plus, having spent a solid part of my teenage years living in an area that was largely a rural, farm town, "white boy", country style place, the kind of shit in the review (havent read the book, but its on my list) is pretty much a way of life. Families argue and settle shit with fist fights, I had a few friends who would have fights with their dads. Girls were sexual way younger, I knew 12 and 13 year olds who got pregnant and those girls routinely hooked up with older guys. With nothing around to do, underage drinking and smoking pot was common and getting in trouble was just something we did. Bored kids do stupid shit. Its just a way of life.

And times are way different than even just 5 or 10 years ago. What might have been totally normal 20 or 30 years ago today would be a huge deal. I mean I know just from my teenage time, if I would have tried to do now half the shit I did back then I would almost certainly have been in and out of juvie/jail.

Didn't know Mark Hughes posts here.  Cool.

I think it's safe to say I would have preferred to never have known about the book in the first place.

Thanks for bumping this - I missed it the first time around.

I never particularly liked Matt, but I didn't completely detest him either. His bible thumper character always shit me. The pig mutilation though... dude is just a straight up psycho/sociopath. 

Not difficult to see why life unravelled for him.

Forrest himself explained the process of writing that book to me personally. It is entirely ghostwritten and just based on notes he dictated to a recorder. 

I enjoyed it and wasn’t expecting a sophisticated read.
