CD's Love-Hate Station: Matt Hughes

Ok, so last week i had Sean Sherk and this were the results.

Love him 24 42.11%
Hate him 8 14.04%
Dont Really Care 25 43.86%

Obviously the terms Love and Hate are to be used loosely on this thread, so this week is all about Matt Hughes, his legendary WW Title run, his time as a coach in TUF, Rascism acussations and everything Matt Hughes.

So what's is it going to be for the greatest welterweight of all time? Love...or Hate?

Poll is up 6 days, and i have one on Jorge Gurgel in the Strikeforce section too.

Share the love (and hate) guys!

Personally, i don't care about Hughes, i wasn't around when he was doing great and i haven't been impressed with his performance as of late, wasn't around when he was in TUF too, though he seems like an ass..oh well.

I don't know if I have any legitimate reasons but when he beat Gracie is when I first started to dislike him. What really did it in for me was when he handed out bibles on TUF. I know there is only one religion in the U.S. but it just seemed like a very ignorant thing to do. Can't wait to see him leave the UFC, although if Serra is his last match, he probably will win.

Love him.

He's the greatest WW ever, and the greatest champion the UFC has ever seen. Top 5 fighter, had epic fights and was the working man's champion. He never ducked anybody, he took on all comers, and he beat most of them. Listing Hughes' great wins becomes tiresome, since he has beaten so many great fighters.

I'm indifferent personally. He's kind of annoying but there's a certain level of respect for his capabilities since he's the second or third best WW ever.

Yeah my early impression with his awesome wrestlemania overides my later learning that he's an angry short guy conservative type

I hate him.

Yes he had the greatest run as WW champion. But that doesnt make him the greatest WW of all time. GSP right now would beat the Matt Hughes of 2005 10/10 times. Therefore he isnt the greatest WW of all time. The answer to that question is GSP.

Great fighter in his day, however comes across as a "bully" who likes to ridicule others in a typical Jock/nerd manner

Stefan Struve
Donald Cerrone
Glover Texiera
Cub Swanson
Kim Dong - Hyun.

Pretty much sums it up.

I went with love him cos even though I'm not the biggest Hughes fan he was the most dominant WW of all time and gave us the greatness that is Hughes - Trigg 2. I've never heard a UFC crowd that pumped up before and Hughes showed a champions spirit to comeback like that. Epic fight and one that I can watch over and over.
