It's kinda sad. I don't see how what he did on the show affects you or anyone else in a way to the point that you find it neccessary to badmouth him.
I did take it personally, but not cuz it's Hughes, it's because I hate how people believe everything they see on TV.
I think Matt Serra is a little overrated as a fighter, well maybe not now since he KOed GSP pretty convincingly, but before that I never really liked him as a fighter. On the show he seems to be a little full of himself and rude. But I'm not gonna form a general opinion about his entire personality based on a reality show. I could really care less what their personalities are outside of the cage.
hold up, I somehow only read half your post before, so let me read the rest, and ill reply lol.. i dont know how I managed that!
EDIT: Ok I read the rest of your orginal post. I do agree that it could very likely be scripted, thus its all irrelevant.
However, my entire opinion on Matt Hughes has been based off a few things...
The main thing is the way he treats his fighters when they lose.. especially the ones that went into the fight with other things on their mind (ie Paul when his cousin died).
I mean I know Paul didnt follow the game plan, but when he wakes up from being knocked out.. I doubt the first thing he wants to hear is how he ****ed up.
Also in Season 2, when he basically treated Jason Von Flue like garbage, even when he won.. simply because Matt Hughes didnt need to win that fight.. that is pretty much exactly what he said... he didnt even congratulate the guy.
Dont get me wrong, I read Matts blog, I read shit on his site.. I know hes not 100% asshole.. but he has his moments, and imo its enough for me to classify him as a jerk.
