All in all, Hughes should have just skipped the religious angle and said 'the day they make this type of hunting illegal, I'll stop doing it' and the people pulling their hair out could go devote their time to something more productive, like trying to get big game hunting banned... in Africa.

Of course, that would be hard. Calling Matt Hughes, the greatest welterweight champion of all time, a 'coward' is much easier.

If a politician writes on a piece of paper, that hunting is illegal, and it is signed by a bunch of other politicians, then it is illegal.

How dare you hunt an animal in the King's forest!

Everything in this forest is property of the king!

peasant: I have said no oath to him....

politician: it matters not....he is your king....

Honestly, Hughes didn't have to say anything. Isn't he officially retired? Point being, he was doing something legal that he can't get into trouble for, and he has no need to keep his reputation going or explain himself as he's not even fighting/in the spotlight anymore.

Anywho, I've explained my opinion on it - he didn't do anything wrong, it was legal and all the meat/materials gathered from the animals were eaten and used, and it was done in a civil manner, I see no issues here.

Don't have to feel fine about animals being killed for sport. However, I would feel just fine punching somebody calling me a pussie for defending this point. No remorse at all.

Ok guys, If you'd like to continue the debate on hunting and its morality please start a hunting thread in the debate section (if there isn't one already).

But this thread has more than ran its course.
