It doesn't matter if it did or didn't affect him. Most athletes have the mental and emotional fortitude to keep focused on the task at hand, while in the ring. As, soon as you are out of the ring is when you can deal with all your RL stuff.

If you are unable to do as such it questions your ability to be a elite fighter.

MY FIVE

1. George St. Pierre
2. Anderson Silva
3. Fedor Emelianenko
4. Don Frye
5. Kenny Florian

Oh please, elite fighters or not. They are humans just like the rest of us.

That definitely was bad luck, but I don't think his stupidity was influenced by his cousin's death.

Hughes beating the shit out of Dan isn't bad luck, it's a bad call. There are more effective ways of teaching your teammates a lesson, ones that don't involve injuring them. He has no one to blame but himself for marrying an insane woman, there was absolutely nothing wrong with her, she's just a crazy bitch.
Good post, pretty much summing up what I thought.

Another side note, that footage they pulled up of me beating on Dan was over a long period of time and they pulled it from a lot of different practices. I know that because of what I was wearing and there was no way I was going to be that rough with him right before he was going to go fight for me."
If I remember right, some of the other guys in his team said he's quite hard on people all the time. His heads far to far up his own arse to be a good coach IMO. "They make ME look bad!?!? I'm gonna punish them" It's a wonder he's not giving out wedgies and dunkin people in the toilet.

I think you're talking about being an elite psychopath.

Are you kidding?? Those are not 3 fights hughes could have won.. Paul was the only one out of those 3 that had a chance... regardless of what happened to blake he wasnt beating anyone.

Dan was definitely not going to beat Ben either...

5-1 is lucky? Sounds more like domination to me!

You forget that this isn't just some brutal sport where everyones out to kill each other. Its much more like a game of physical chess.-looney liam

Actually, if you read Mac's blog he said Hughes beating up Dan was "all-in-fun" and was never meant to be a punishment.

"You must first believe if you are to achieve. That rhymed... unintentionally."
