Truth be told, Matt Hughes could be the biggest douchebag in the world and he would still be head and shoulders above people like Tiger Woods who are douchebags but try hard to pretend they aren't.

Kudos for Hughes for having the class to be who he is without engaging in politically correct bs or being a phony who tries to cultivate image.

Matt Hughes may not be perfect, but he is a real man. And, there are many media darlings in the public spotlight who could NOT say the same.
I haven't been following Tiger's recent headlines too well, but apart from banging a few chicks while being married (99% of dudes who are rich and famous do this I'm sure) why so much hate?

not my favourite person.

It depends upon context which is open to interpretation.

Sometimes, people lose someone close to them and decide the deceased person would want them to "celebrate life" rather than mourn.

And, if that happens to be the case, what's wrong with that, exactly?... Its not necessarily etched in stone that someone is a dick. Some people cope with tragedy by going out and trying to drink their problems away.

Why are people so harsh and judgmental and think they have the right to pass judgment on people they don't even know?

No hate required.

Tiger Woods tries to be politically correct -- a perfect "posterboy" and pretends to be something he's not.

I think Matt Hughes as a douchebag is better than him for not being pretentious and via virtue of honesty.

We all could do well to follow Matt Hughes example, and to avoid Tiger Woods.

i think wed be better of avoiding hughes. hed probably try to wedgie us or something.

i do take your point, however, regardless of how people handle death, getting pissed the same night two friends die and going chasing ***** aint the best indicator of compassion or loyalty.

i dont give a **** how someone treats their enemies, but i do judge ppl on how they treat strangers and their friends.

i dont know matt hughes, so il try not to judge him too harshly, but his own words seem to be condemning him somewhat.

i read the autobiography of malcolm x thinking id hate him, after all i figured hed hate me, but i was shocked at the eloquence compassion and courage of the man.

as for matt hughes... il leave the judgements till i read the whole thing myself, which will probably be never, but he hardly seem the kind of guy bob dylan would write a song about.

Agreed. He could've told a bunch of lies.....but he didn't. I'm sure all the people bashing him have led perfect lives. YEAH RIGHT!

I'm not perfect, not by any stretch of the imagination, but I'm not a patch on this dude.

i aint preaching political correctness and niceness, but if two of your friends died from drowning, would you really walk off and go out that night getting drunk and chasing *****?

Exactly! Who read Mein Kampf and then feels guilty about the time they accidentally ruined the breaks on their girlfriends car while rallying it around the woods ... or something similar.

People need to chill out. Matt Hughes is a douche, yes. But this makes him sound like a villian. This guys summary is clearly very biased.

For the record, here's a family Christmas video from Matt Hughes. You can see his releationship between he and his siblings. After your sister would wack the piss out of you for all those years, at some point when you could actually beat her, I'm pretty sure you would do so too. If she doesn't hate Matt for gut punching her, why do you guys care so much?

I think there's a general consensus. He was a good champ while it lasted but not the most humble. Laughing at GSP when he got KOed only to have GSP man handle him twice. Making fun of other people.

Then he got KTFO out BJ Penn. End of story. Bye bye Matt Hughes.

In fact anybody have BJ's email address cuz I'm going to email him.

ALOHA STRENGTH WINS!!!
