If anyone has any interview or Vid of Hughes saying he thought his fight was impressive, then so be it. People are too ignorant to see and hear what was said or done, so they draw their own conclusions. Penn sucks after a couple rounds, so who cares how bad someone looked the first 2 rounds. If they win, they win. Hughes won by beating on Penn. He did not eek out a decision that could have been controversial, he won by beating him. If people say BJ, owned Matt in the first 2 rounds, that is funny to me, because he must not have owned him that much if he still lost. Yes he won the rounds, but hardly owned anyone if he did not stop them.
The idiot is you my friend. You've gone off on a little verbal hissy fit like some whiny teenage girl.
You really think that whole GSP altercation wasn't staged?
Did you see the post-fight interview with Hughes?
Well if you did, you would have seen Matt and GSP shaking hands, laughing, and smiling. Its called marketing
. GSP has gone on the record many times claiming his respect and admiration for Hughes and when Matt just finished taking a verbal jab at Penn with his 5 rds comment; isn't it a tad bit hypocritical to get your panties in a knot? Besides Matt saying in many of pre-fight interviews that he has no interest in fighting GSP and borderline dismissing him as a threat, why would you whine even if it were real?
Now to bring this point home so that you may or may not get it. Do you think it was coincidence that nearly the same scenerio happened in the PPV just before this one? Unless you lived under a rock or were a complete n00b you would of known that Chuck has gone the record many many times saying he wants to fight Wanderlei; not so much as sneeze in Tito's direction. But all of sudden that fight can't happen and Rogan asks a question that sounded straight off a teleprompter with something to the effect of what motivates you to keep fighting? Well, let's see.....for the last couple+ months it was Wanderlei this, Wanderlei that.....but suddenly for some reason he says its Tito; and holy shit would you beleive it Tito is in the crowd.....and guess what he's gunna come running in the ring!! Thank you WWE *ahem* I mean Zuffa for that blatant PR
move.....its stunning how GSP (the notorious self-promoter and shameless shit talker
) finds his way into the octagon and mumbles out some awkward, uncharacteristic "diss", only to 2 secs later smile and try to explain it to the guy....and again later is the post-fight interview; wake up.
