Matt Hughes defends hunting hobby - " The law and the bible say I can"
 
Quote:

They can think whatever they want. But as far as, by the law, I’m right. You can’t see anything in the Bible [that says I'm wrong]. By the law and by the Bible, I’ve not done anything wrong. And if I haven’t conflicted with either one of those, I can live my life the way I want to. That’s my answer. When you go to Africa, I had to pay to shoot these animals. But, when you kill an animal, you get the hide and the horns. All the meat stays with the outfitter and it feeds the people there. So I wasn’t entitled to any of the meat. I shot six animals: kudu, gemsbok, eland, red hartebeest, black wildebeest, blue wildebeest. [My son] shot a kudu, gemsbok, zebra, impala, and bushbuck. So, we had a great time. It was a great bonding moment. He’s 13 years old, so of course he’s never going to forget this. And he can’t wait to go back to Africa sometime.”

Avid huntsmen, Matt Hughes, recently took part in MMAFighting.com’s “The MMA Hour.”

While on the show he discussed the hunting practices he and his family employ when on vacation to such places like the continent of Africa.

Hunting is often frowned upon by much of humanity, however in this statement Hughes defends his right to shoot animals for trophy sport and cites the law and religion for reasons why he sees no wrong doing.

Matt trying to tell us he went all the way to Africa to help out the locales, lol. Sure you did Matt. You went to Africa because you're a twisted fck who enjoys killing beautiful animals.

I'd shove his gun up his own ass and pull the trigger till it goes click click.

Well if the law says he's not doing anything wrong, then, well.....

I guess that's all there is to it.

It isn't like Hughes is a poacher so I don't think it is fair to blast him, but killing animals is something I have no interest in at all (it repulses).

What is there to be confused about?

If it's hunting season, then he's done nothing wrong and quite frankly, unless you're a vegetarian you really don't have the room to criticize him considering what goes in a slaughter house is much, much worse than putting a bullet in a deer's head and being done with it, from that quote it sounds like they fed the people the animal. Which I have no problem with.

I'm not sure how hunting is looked at in Manchester but in North Carolina it's quite common.

I don't really have problems with people hunting, but I just hate when they do it and waste all the food. I hope some village was able to benefit from all the hunting he did in Africa, since its not like he can take the meat home.

The difference between someone like Brock who is a hunter, he eats everything he kills.

Oh no! A hunter has killed a non-endangered animal legally and with a minimum of suffering! What a monster!

Or this could just be liberal whining bs. I'm betting on the latter.

I hope Hughes experiences a hunting "accident" sometime soon. Meaning I hope someone he hunts with accidently shoots him in the neck.

Hughes wasn't hunting these animals for food or to feed the locales, (even though he implies that's what he went over for). That wasn't his intention. His goal was to fly over to Africa and kill some exotic animals....for pleasure. Nothing else. He killed those animals because he finds it fun to kill them.

I have no problem with folk hunting as a means for food and to survive, what I do have a problem with, are sick human beings who kill animals for pleasure and their own satisfaction.

What kind of sick freak looks at some of those beautiful animals and says to themselves; "I'd love to put a bullet through it's head, just for fun!".

I'm an animal lover, so seeing things like this go on disgust me really. If you're hunting for food, or for over population issues then there is no problem what so ever. Killing those creatures for fun?

Get the fck outta here with that shit.

Oh and Lyoto - it's Manchestorrrrrr :)
