On the manipulation thing... Hughes really pissed me off when he pulled Joe aside on the first episode and 'led him on' so to speak, making him think, "oh no, I better tell Matt (Serra) so he picks me first." Hughes even said later that he had no intention to pick him, but he acted so genuine, as if he really wanted him on his team. It showed me how natural he is at manipulation, which tells me he's been doing it his whole life. Hence the jock persona.
Some will say that this is just strategy and it's a part of the game. That may be so, but Hughes totally blew his "wholesome christian nice-guy" image (which I didn't believe in the first place) by playing Joe like a pawn and then laughing about it behind his back. I look forward to seeing their boys fight, but I'll be happy when both Matts are done with the show.

People try to defend that with saying, "He just speaks his mind," like that's some kind of defense. "Hey lady, you're a fat ass. What? I'm just speaking my mind!" "No honey, you're not as hot as you use to be, and you are getting fat. What? I'm just speaking my mind!" "Yes, it is hard to focus on what you're saying with that grotesque pimple on your face. Just speakin' my mind!" That's absolutely no excuse to have to listen to his drivel all night long while I'm trying to enjoy my show.

My next point would be his pathetic little ego trip he's on. The guy beat a bunch of has-been's or never-will-be's on a show, and in turn was able to skip the ENTIRE WW ladder and fight the champ. Look at the guys GSP beat to get a title shot, or the guys Sanchez, Parisyan, or KOS have had to fight to get up in the rankings. Serra wouldn't have lasted through fights like that if he was even able to get through one. On the show, he recognized that (Or at least from what was shown) so he was a bit more low key. Now he thinks he's the hottest thing since sliced bread and he's running his mouth like some kind of veteran champion. Hey Matty, you got your ass absolutely handed to you by Karo Parisyan, Din Thomas, BJ Penn, and Shonie effin' Carter. I'm supposed to believe you're the champ?

Finally would be the little things that just grind on me. Everyone has little things that bug 'em, and it seems like they take those things for Serra and shove 'em right in my face. His constant screaming in the corner, his disgusting mouth (Seriously dude, buy a vocabulary), his hypocrisy - Seriously, you're a "bully," so I'm going to insult you and put you down! Are you kidding me?

Anyways, those are my reasons for not being a big fan of his. I never minded him until he got all this publicity and let it get to his head, but now I'm pretty darn sick of him. Maybe he's a nice guy off camera, but what they're showing of him isn't giving him the best face.

couldn't agree more.

whats worse, is if matt hadn't picked joe right off the bat, he probably would have taken danzig. then his team wouldnt have had the first loss. all because hughes plays manipulative mind games. and yes, it did make it worse that hughes was laughing about it with his coaching team. i thought it was supremely f---ed up that it cost serra a decent team member to keep someone on his team that the other team didnt even want.

Matt Hughes is such a jerk. I can't wait to bust a lung when Serra beats him in the title defense. dont think that will happen? matt can wrestle, but he can;t touch serra's jiujitsu. serra is pound for pound stronger than hughes. boxing i'd say they are probably even. the only advantage i'd give hughes is POSSIBLE cardio. I know hughes can go the distance, but i've never seen serra go that long.
