Gallery: Matt Hughes and His Son Go Hunting in South Africa, Slay All of the Animals

Fact: Matt Hughes loves hunting. Loves it. And whether you stand on the “hunting is for sociopaths” or the “guns are the only thing keeping giant underground worms from invading the earth” side of the issue, you gotta respect the former welterweight champion’s dedication to slaying every beast this earth has to offer, except for the most dangerous game, that is. In either case, Hughes recently partook in a South African hunting expedition with his son Joey, and the results look like what you would expect an Oregon Trail novice to haul in on his first Buffalo hunt. A lot of things were killed is what we’re saying. But before you jump on Hughes for blatantly wasting such delicious Zebra meat or being an ignorant redneck (we’re looking at you, Dan Hardy), know that the meat from animals hunted in African safaris is often donated to local villages in need, and the hefty licensing fees guys like Hughes have to pay to legally hunt such game help fund the nation’s conservation efforts. In other words: Fuck yeah guns!!

Eating and using the animal isn't the problem or the point. This guy and others gain pleasure by destroying magnificent creatures then think they are good people. If want to cut down these animals for fun, don't seek solice in the eventual good your evil motives may create, own the fact you don't respect other forms of life. He's a piece of crap.

Really good haul here. Some big animals. Pity Matt did not take the time to visit some of the South African MMA clubs, it would have been a awesome experience to see the man on the mat sharing his skills.

OK, and maybe a little medium rare zebra sirloin.

I don't have any problem with the harvesting of animals that are going to be used to feed villages. I just think it's funny that he needs a high-powered scoped rifle and full camouflage outfits to hunt what is essentially cattle and horses.

Seriously, where do you think the food you eat comes from?
EndTyranny- September 20, 2012 at 7:15 am
Hope someone or something takes this piece of shit and his cohorts out!
EndTyranny- September 20, 2012 at 7:10 am
Hope some wild animal fatally mauls both him and his Jason Voorhees looking, future serial killer son. How could anyone be so sadistic as to aimlessly slaughter these beautiful creatures? This piece of dirt represents the worst of humanity.

Remeadial, do you think all the meat found in grocery stores was grown out of the ground? I don't care for hunting, but the animals in these photos got a much better deal than any slaughterhouse animal that ends up in a grocery store. The world would really be a better place for animals if there was only hunting and no grocery stores. Your logic is flawed.
EndTyranny- September 20, 2012 at 7:13 am
ArmFarmer, see your point but where did this meat go? These animals were slaughtered so their heads can hang on the wall of some closet serial killer's wall. And he's training his weirdo kid to kill.

It's amazing how someone can justify this shit by making an excuse like the meat is fed to the locals. If you're so benevolent, fucking buyout a grocery store hick fuck. That's like Exxon and their commercials to support math and science and how much they donate. You can't support science and still argue you're not warning the earth.

Lol you're a fool. Do you think the burger you're about to eat wasn't at one point alive until someone slaughtered it?

A zebra? Are you fucking kidding me?
JohnyBonezNmoans- September 19, 2012 at 10:56 pm
Hughes was great for his time but dudes the thick headed hill-billy type. Never cared for him.
JohnyBonezNmoans- September 19, 2012 at 10:54 pm
I honestly had no idea all of the large prey down south have Demonic horns...*had

Scary as fuck, sure. But I can never see reason in them to die unless its in the mouth of a predator, or to feed the millions of people around the globe dieing everyday.

Yee haaaaAA for rich white "hunting" expeditions
amsterdamheavy- September 19, 2012 at 7:09 pm
despicable fuck - I hope some kind of Predator snatches his hick ass up and hunts him down
itsgalf- September 19, 2012 at 6:09 pm
damn, that looks like a lot of fun

The Village gonna eat tonight!
Ricardo Guitardo- September 19, 2012 at 4:42 pm
That looks like a pictyure of a tasmanian devil

In Nepal, the villagers call me "Kintantee", which means 'noble man who is loved by many animals'... who in turn he loveth, too. Not sure what they call me in South Africa. -Matt Hughes

stephan bonnar vs matt hughes using only front left leg kicks please.
The12ozCurls- September 19, 2012 at 3:11 pm
Matt better ease up on pressuring his son to do things because judging from his 1000 yard stare, the kid is destined for the top of a bell-tower screaming "Why'd you make me play second base?"
Vera- September 19, 2012 at 2:38 pm
Are those Gods animals Matt?
holeeball- September 19, 2012 at 1:43 pm
Also, no miners? That's just weak.
LOKI- September 19, 2012 at 1:42 pm
Lets be honest, he didnt go to the dark continent to hunt anything that walks on four legs. These photos are just his cover story.
hooligun- September 19, 2012 at 1:38 pm
He kills for fun. He is a sick fuck.
holeeball- September 19, 2012 at 1:30 pm
They should've shot the photographer as well.
ArmFarmer- September 19, 2012 at 1:17 pm
I see Matt is training his son in the ancient art of "stand really far behind something so it looks a lot bigger than it actually is"
ZombieHusker- September 19, 2012 at 2:28 pm
Right? They're both going Hogzilla style on these pics.
