So... do we STILL think Hughes is an asshole?

Turns out Matt Hughes put a hurt on Dan because he was dropping fists on his training partners, and NOT because he was pissed off over the fact that he's losing 4-1. See... now, don't you all feel badly for jumping the gun? Matt only did to Dan what Dan was doing to Blake and his fellow sparring partners. I just hope he hasn't cost Dan the fight by 'breaking' his hand, lol... his plan/lesson may have backfired!

That thing was quite the sight. He did a good job teaching him a leason and you can tell he took it well. But I think he went kinda far with the hand thing.

Yea?
Yea.

Not only an a-hole, but a whiny priss as well.

'I/m gonna quit because coaching sucks. Maybe I picked the wrong guys. Maybe they are all losers. Maybe the Nevada Commission has bad refs.'

Maybe Serra has Satan in his corner.

Maybe Matt, you took out your own guys hand by acting the 'loving but abusive father figure' type and schooled him right into the hospital.

Hopefully, people can understand why Hughes might come off as an asshole the odd time on this show. None of his fighters seem to listen to him when they get into the cage. You could hear Hughes screaming for Dan to let Ben up, but Dan would have none of it. Dan probably had a good chance of knocking Ben out, but instead, he chose to let his opponent rest. Hughes is stuck with a bunch of Andy Wangs this season, and I can't really blame him for getting frustrated as hell. Too many of his fighters have abandoned their game plans, and that might as well be a shot at him, because as a coach, he's there to enforce and nurture those game plans. I really don't blame him for losing it each week... you can see that he's working his balls off with these guys, but they just don't seem to want to take his advice. I'm sure Serra would be just as pissed were his fighters ignoring him.

Yes he'd be pissed, but he'd handle it differently.

Exactly, They are not listening and the more they lose the worst matt looks and his career is going a few steps down. Dan was not ready for that cage though. He was jogging around like a monkey. If ben wouldve lunged at him he wouldnt of had the right balance to stay up and couldve got taken down.

Maybe Serra's fighters listen to him because he is a better coach.

It is a poor carpenter who blames his tools.

Hughs IS a dick.

That said I think his intervention was warranted.

If one guy wasn't listening to Hughes I'd chalk it up to Andy Wang syndrome, but 6 guys haven't listened to Matt. Danzig won doing his thing.

Matt knows how to train, not motivate, not coach.

How can we say for certain when he hasn't been placed in that position? I mean really, how can we say for certain how he'd act when he's up five to one, and has no idea what it's like to have his fighters ignore him? We can't.

Not to mention, he resorted to swearing and cussing like a teenager during the entire Joey situation, so none of us can say that Serra doesn't have a bit of 'Matt Hughes' in him. Honestly.
