He never had sex with Rothwell's wife.


I'm not a fan of the man's personality but I love watching him fight. His incredible power makes most fights he's involved in rather exciting.

I prefer him to some other fighters however I can't say the guy is one of my favorites.
Read his book. You'll change your mind.

Bisping is by far the most disliked.

Many fighters dislike Hughes but it also seems many high profile fighters like him. BJ, Franklin, Liddell.

Hughes is also usually very respectful to his opponants after fights, Bisping has a history of antics.

It was a rumor (I should have put allegedly slept) from someone that trained in the Miletich camp. Can't find the source though, read it a few years back.

This is a good place to check otherwise http://www.mmaforum.com/mma-smacktal...-nice-man.html and is probably, along with TUF, the main reason people on this forum dislike him. Sucks that I am a fan of him as a fighter (Hughes-Trigg ranks high on my list) but as a person he seems like a prick.

...I would agree with other members. Sonnen & Bisping are at the top of the list. I think Hughes is just a little suck on himself...

In terms of who has the most haters, Bisping wins. If you subtracted the amount of fans from the number of haters (fighters such as GSP, Fedor, Bisping, and Sonnen are polarizing) then Hughes is probably the most disliked fighter in MMA.

I've never read his book, and I doubt most people who reference it actually have. I don't know him personally, and I get why people don't like him.

Having said that, he is one of my favorite fighters ever, and he is the guy that got me into MMA. He has some of the best fights in MMA history, and very few fights of hi weren't exciting. At the end of the day that is what I really care about as a fan, as long as the guy isn't a total attention-whoring douche *cough* Chael Sonnen *cough*

Personally never read his book (nor would I), but you have to ask yourself if GSP wrote a book and someone that is biased did a synopsis of it and it contained half of what was mentioned to be in Hughes' book, would people believe the synopsis? I doubt it. The synopsis might be biased but it isn't far fetched to most that are familiar with Matt's personality (which of course we only get snippets from).

I think both Koscheck and Bisping get more hate than Hughes but he is definitely up in the top 5 with good reason, he has done douchy things many times.

A lot of the Hughes hate has dissipitated over recent months/years because he is no longer as relevant to the division as he once was, therefore he doesnt get quite as much attention.

Most of the time he does come over as a douche, but i think there are alot of things to admire about him namely his MMA career and his insane work ethic in all aspects of his life. I would advise reading his book whether you are a fan or not as it is quite an interesting read.

I like Matt, but i understand why many people think he is a douche and i would never try to convert people into liking him. I dont think he is the most disliked though he would rank in the top 5. Bisping is easily the most hated fighter at present, i'm English and i dont like him anymore than the rest of the world. Rashad gets a lot of flak and i have to say i dont think it will be all that long until Jon Jones becomes the most hated man in the sport. Certainly he could easily become the most unpopular champion.
