Lets pretend this statement is true.

Then consistent loses are a pretty BIG coincidence and the odds are around winning the lottery.

So, what is the difference here. Hughes guys are not listening to Hughes and Hughes' game plan. Serra's guys are. Which boils down to coaching and having a plan to defeat the fighter you are fighting. Good coaches like Randy do it all the time. A good plan can make up for some of the disparity between two fighters. A good coach can come up with that plan and inspire his fighter to follow that plan; even under difficult situations.

I hope what I'm suggesting is not getting lost here.

I border on being an Anti-Hughes.
Why? Because I had an advanced wrestling career and Hughes reminds me of a dozen or so top athletes in the upper echelons of collegiate wrestling. Out of those dozen a few got into WWE/WCW and got even WORSE after breaking through. Matt is symbolic of people too full of themselves that break through to a new profession doing the only thing they are good at and it shoots their egos and their assness through the roof.

They are elite athletes that 'want' to be looked up to and want to coach. But their whole method is demeaning and used, often subconsciously, to reinforce their own self esteem.

Look at the other side and you can see examples of good coaches, winners or not. Pulver, Tito, Serra. These guys are trying to help the sport, not just themselves.

Then look at Hughes, BJ, Shamrock. They lounge around, pointing to their assistants to provide some instruction, and then jump in every so often to prove they are better and/or give their guys a tongue lashing for not working hard enough.

Sure, the film guys have to spin a story and they often slant the footage to make for good drama. But, they wouldn't have the footage to use unless there was some semblance of the truth.

I think matt just picked the wrong guys they dont listin or follow any game plan in the cage. just like the fight before last Matt told him to take him down and not to stand and bang and he did the exat oposite. Plus I think if they could have picked the fight they wanted they would have won. Dana is ass making him fight just before the funeral. Dan didnt listen in his fight and got his ass kicked too although I do think It should have gone to the third round he could have koed him if he had just listened to matt.
