I think if you look at Matt Hughes, his particular kind of being a jerk is connected to his being a great fighter. As Matt Serra put it, he is a 'jock snob'- he cannot tolerate anything less than incredibly physical performance and commitment. And he is wildly competitive, which probably gives him some of that drive, but also means that he has to be constantly getting in to people's heads.

I think it depends on the fighter. some will thrive on such confidence, while some will get overconfident in there abilities and fight stupidly. so what im saying is...confidence is good, as long it dosn't blind you to your own weakness

He didn't seem like that kind of guy. I have only seen his fights in Pride, not any interviews before he came to the UFC. From what I have seen he is a really laid back, nice guy. I usually don't like when people talk trash, charisma or not.

One Person arrogance is another person confidence. Also regional/cultural differences make a difference.

I think sometimes a fighter's trash talking etc., is as much about their own fears. I think fighters who have absolute self-awareness about their own conditioning, skills, training and that of their opponents, are less inclined to trash talk or be negative.
