What>?! No Way!!

DID MATT HUGHES SWEAR ON CAMERA?!?!

what will his kids think?!? what about God?! MATT HUGHES WHAT HAVE YOU DONE?!?!

in all seriousness though... I understand he was mad, but is that an excuse for someone who doesn't condone swearing???

I personally don't think it is.

And how nice, how "manly" of Hughes to stay and help these guys. nevermind that they are HIS team. Yeah, they aren't listening... so fix it. don't give this self righteous talk about how a "real man" sticks with it. I agree with working their asses off in practice. they need it. I think Hughes is starting to show himself a little here.

I think Hughes has a major tendency to hold others to the standards to which he holds himself. they may work for him, but they don't work for everyone. If Barerra was happy with going in there and fighting like he did, if he thought he did what he went in there to do, then who is Hughes to say he was wrong? Yeah, Barerra's not gonna win the fight by letting the dude lay on the ground... but he was the one fighting the fight. not Hughes.

anyone agree? or maybe see it differently?

I think that people on this board need to get off Matt Hughes' back. The guy is human just like everybody else and the ironic thing is that he was behaved much better than someone such as Matt Serra. Yet people continue to dismiss Serra's comments and shove Matt Hughes' comments under a microscope.

Ya Matt Hughes is religious and doesn't want his son to hear cussing. Big ****in deal?!? Does that mean he can't cuss? Of course not. Anyone can lose their temper or even be human.

People have got to stop making him out to be the bad guy.

I'm not gonna lie. I just flat out do not like hughes. and i probably am picking on him for the swearing thing, but the rest of my post is my main concern. it really seems he wants to do things his way, even to the point that when things go differently he wants to leave.

Well it is sort of funny considering he sort of busted on Matt Serra for doing it. He even said that he wouldn't allow his kids to watch TUF 6 because of Matt Serra cussing so much!

But I do agree with Josh! Hughes never claimed to be a saint so he's allowed to vent his frustration!

OK, we didn't put Hughes under a microscope, he did. If you want to call out people for how they act and how wrong it is, then be sure that people are going to be looking for you to do the same stuff.

And people need to get off their "LEAVE MATT ALONE" bullshit. We have as much right to hate him as you do to like him.

Once again if he wants to tell everyone how wonderful of a person/Christian he is, then he needs to act like it all the time. If he wants to be able to get away with being "human" then he needs to give others that respect as well and stop trying to make himself look like the second coming personified.

Who is Hughes to say he is wrong? How about being Barerra's coach? They clearly came up with a game plan that Barerra didn't follow at all. The thing is, fighters need to listen to thier corners sometimes. Matt was yelling at Barerra to let Ben up. He didn't listen. He deserves some critism. Matt Hughes has accomplished a lot in MMA and has trained at one of the better MMA camps out there for a long time. Barerra has baisically no MMA experience so maybe he could have learned something. Obviously he didn't. It's to bad that fighters waste such a great opportunity to learn something from guys that have been in the sport for a long time.

dropkick, i understand where you are coming from. your argument makes sense, but you gotta take into account that these guys are amateurs too- with very few exceptions. Matt is treating them like they have some clue as to how its suppose to work. obviously they dont. they need to be treated like the amateurs they are. the need explicit instructions and they need to follow those instructions. it is as much the fighters fault as it is matts, but if he's such a good coach then he should find a way around this learning block.

I think it's fairly ignorant to hate someone you've never met, or do not know in a personal setting, but hey... that's just me.

Yes, you're absolutely right. 'Let him up, Dan!' isn't very explicit at all... needlessly complicated. Shame on Matt Hughes. Shame.

I have "met" him. At UFC 64 right before the meet and greet's with the fiighters.

And obviously, if I were to have dinner with the man and feel that he's being mis-portrayed by the media (which I doubt I would, but I might), I would think differently about him. Until then I have to go with all the information at hand.
