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