I honestly don't care about Matt Hughes enough to read his book. I've seen enough footage and heard enough from him to know that he is a jackass.
Anyone that reads a one-sided synopsis and believes that its exactly how the story reads is quite silly. If he included examples, in context from the book that are unaltered that would be better then painting a bad picture.
What I know about Matt Hughes without reading the synopsis:
He enjoys making fun of people because he's obviously insecure.
He is willing to use a guy as a training partner but not willing to share the same table as them when they eat (Thinks he's better than everyone)
He shows a complete lack of respect for anyone that he is fighting. He basically acted like Gracie didn't mean anything to the UFC or MMA. Wouldn't it be nice if he were treated the same.
That to me is enough not to like him. All the stories/synopsis aren't going to convince me any further as he could simply be making them up for the book or someone else can be making it up because they don't like him. Like I said, I could care less about his book. I'm just wishing for more fighters to treat him like BJ just did to give him a farewell that he truly deserves.
