So like it or not Matt can be a **** if he wants. He's trained hard enough and fought well enough to earn it
Where I understand what you are saying I disagree.

That's like saying that if you are good enough at your job to be the boss you can be a d**k if you want. Well you can't. You still have to live your life like a person and be respectful to others.

People will remember the attitude long after you have lost the belt.

all i have to say is this, when we said TUF made ken shamrock look like an ass no one bought into that

so im not buying into it that they do it to hughes.

Matt is doing it to himself.

I meet Matt in Vegas this last weekend, and if he is that big of an ass he hides it well. When he talks to his fans, he seemes like he honestly wants to talk and enjoy the people around him.

I don't think anyone has claimed that he is arrogant to his fans, but rather to his oppenents. Nobodies perfect, Matt just seems to be waaaaay too competitive and takes no shame in pissing people off because he thinks he's unbeatable. And he likes to stomp on other people (figurativly speaking) to make himself feel better

Let's Bang!

I think that is a great way to word it. I guess I don't see how the champ would need to put others down to make himself feel better. I like it more when you have the guys that don't need that and just want to show it in the ring.

Your a knotthead, did you even read what I wrote before you replied? you really need to hit that preview button before you hit submit. It was obviously written as a joke, hence the "feel free to add your own" at the bottom of the obviously sarcastic list of reasons.

Yeah Hughes has every right to act like an egotistical cliche jock prick...and we have the right to detest him and laugh when he gets his ass kicked.

Matt Hughes has never been impressive...he's boring to watch and for the most part he squeaks out unconvincing wins.

Wow, I almost agree with you.
But, I think hes real fun to watch, his fights are always technical (did I spell the right?) and from a ground fighers standpoint its always a good match.

Yeah I just think that's the way Hughes is... he has that teasing since of humor. I dont think he means anything personally like how he was messin with GSP for ignoring him. Cracked me up how chill Chuck Liddell is, I mean the guy knows he could KO either one of them but he just sits there and minds his business. I dont think I've ever seen him make an ass of himself publicly.
