I agree that he probably just signed and held up the shirt without closely examining what was on it. However, with regard to his comment about Din Thomas, he should probably watch his mouth if he doesn't want the situation to worsen.

..and Jeff Monson has the Hammer and Sickle on his leg. And the UFC never dropped him from his contract.

People have to stop trying to take down others beliefs when its completely irrelevant.

Dude....Walker Im shocked at u........why the hell would he sign a shirt then stand there and pose for a pic holding a shirt he signed?????

I really dont know why you would be quick to assume that Matt Hughs wouldnt just be holding that white supremist shirt and posing for a pic.....

I'm not sterotypeing but he's a midwestern american strong republican.......is it that much of a stretch to be holding somthing like that??? Rather than just saying he's .......Busted!!!

I agree that we dont know what the real situation is but to just assume its not his fault is irresponsible also....no???

Any person who feels the content of their post requires them to clarify that they are, in fact, not a racist or white supremacist, should probably consider another proofread.

The problem may not only be this pic on its own, but also his "background" and reputation regarding this subject. I'm pretty sure if another (renowned) white fighter would be in this situation, it wouldn't make so much noise.

Whether he meant to do it or not, I wouldn't be suprised of any of this. I noticed he seems to look very confused in a lot of the pictures he is in.

Matt Hughes may or may not be a racist, but it's obvious he's a meathead
