Which MMA Fighter Will Test Positive For Steroids Next?

Matt Hughes Not Impressed with GSP’s Performance

You may have noticed Matt Hughes sitting Octagon-side at UFC 87. At least, that’s where he was for most of the night. Turns out he didn’t make it all the way through the evening, and you can probably guess why. From Matt Hughes’ blog:

I went there really to watch one fight, probably not the one you’re expecting. I went there to watch Brock Lesnar. He is so interesting because he is so athletic as well as being so powerful. So that fight went just like I thought it would, Brock took him down whenever he wanted and on the ground he did whatever he wanted. I was also there watching my buddy, Roger, but he didn’t quite look the same. I don’t think him or Kenny fought their best fight on Saturday. Roger looked to have done a few things different and I would say that he needs to go back to what he was doing before.

The last fight of the night was Georges and Fitch. Georges didn’t look as big as he has before and he seemed like he had gotten tired from the first round. Fitch had the game plan of countering Georges and you just can’t do that. You can’t counter a quicker fighter. To be honest, halfway in the third round I got up and walked out of the arena and went to my hotel. The fight wasn’t the most exciting and I wanted to get out of there before everyone else was getting up to leave.

I’m sure Hughes’ decision to walk out of GSP’s first successful title defense halfway through had everything to do with the quality of the fight and not his personal feelings about St. Pierre. Yes, the GSP-Fitch fight did win “Fight of the Night”, but hey, if you stay all the way until the end you’re going to have a hell of a time getting back to your hotel. You’re also going to have to hear the words, “…and still UFC welterweight champion” and know they aren’t talking about you. You can decide for yourself which of those two things played a greater role in Hughes’ decision to walk out.

Matt hughes is a boring hillbilly, like brock lesnar. They have no martial arts skills. GSP is an awesome fighter, and exciting to watch.

And the idiot who made the comment about hughes beating gracie?? Wow what a fucking win over a guy who dominated UFC for 2 decades and was old when he lost. What a win by hughes. He sucks.

From the "IDIOT WHO MADE THE COMMETN ABOUT THE GRACIE FIGHT" if Bart knows how to read i said it in a mocking way...lunchbox...i also said i want hughes to stop whining etc... and that im a huge GSP FAN !!! READ before bashing

Hughes left early because old people go to bed early. No need to shower before bed because he's all washed up already. He should fight Fitch to see if it's easy to finish him.

I really wish Matt Hughes would just go away. Great fighter in his time but man i can't take his comments at all. Even if i have to see him and Serra "bro hug" for 3 rounds it would be worth him retiring and going away.

Matt hughes pretty much should just be humble but not him, I will give him credit though he is a consistently cocky. Where does he go now? Anyone as for GSP everyone has a weakness and his is his Chin the guy has a glass jaw, It was exposed by Matt Serra and when fitch got lucky enough to connect you can see how gsp reacts to getting hit anyone?

Bitchy McBitchBitch. There is a toughman contest in a bar in Moline, IL calling your name.

Mr Hughes needs to be quiet and fight his way back into the division and then you can cast stones...from the top. It doesn't work as well when you're throwing them from the bottom.

You all seem to be forgetting that it was GSP that told Matt Hughes in broken English "I am not that impressed by your performance tonight" minutes after a Hughes win. So it is hilarious when Hughes says that of GSP after what turned out to be an amazing fight and as for Brock Lesnar being boring. He lost his first fight to Mir on a bogus submission after getting careless while smashing Mir into the ground. So a dominaint yet carefully played fight was just what he needed to be considered legit in the sport. And I have to say that I'm not impressed by anyones performance on the comments section today.

Matt Hughes is still the biggest whiner in MMA history and i wish he would just retire... As far as the fight goes, we can't all beat up on an 80 year Gracie as our best match in the last 5 years so ... Maybe Matt needs to drop down to 155 or maybe go after Urijah Faber.. he needs to leave the real fights to people who are still relevant. As a huge GSP fan i can't wait till HE goes down as the Greatest Welterweight in MMA history, not that lil farm beotch!!!

Matt needs to join Tito over at Affliction where he can pretend he never lost to GSP (badly on two occasions) and can pretend he is still the best welterweight in the world. Matt was one of the most dominating wrestlers to fight in MMA, but his fighting never fully evolved. The only reason he beat GSP the first time was that GSP was mentally weak for that fight. GSP owns Matt Hughes and would win every fight against him 100% of the time. Hughes doesn't even get a puncher's chance because his hands are only good at stroking his own ego.

When I look at the Hughes picture I keep hearing the words, "FEAR ME. Fear me? Please?? Anyone? Aw crap."
Dr.- August 11, 2008 at 2:23 pm
This is the only way Hughes can get himself some form of chance to fight GSP. Shit-talk him, hope GSP takes exception to it and wants to beat his ass again. Sorry Hughless, unless you give Dana and Joe a HJ or BJ, you're not getting that chance to get embarrassed. You were a dominant title holder but now you're just a douche-jock-fag living in the past, thinking he still could compete in the bigs, yo. Just waiting for that call just after the game of touch-football in the park and before having to get back to that useless account manager position.

Horror was bang on. DOUUUUCHES.

That fight was amazing. Georges dominated, like I hoped he would. Now, at the same time I have the utmost respect for Fitch. I can't believe he took what he did from St. Pierre. Although he had a lot of heart he had nothing to offer offensively. So case in point, Matt Hughes is washed up and bitter and looked like shit in his last 4 fights, even in his win over Lytle. I bet he loses to Serra too. Matt Hughes is a cunt.

A Hick christian? Well stated coming from a bigot.. Seriously Hughes lost to Gsp now what everyones failing to mention is that Fitch wasn't ready to fight Gsp this kid should been knocked out to early on. Do you know why he didn't get knoked out early on? Cause GSP couldn't finish it. He's right GSP wasen't as big and didn't seem to have as much in the tank as he normally does. Fitch wasn't ready for that fight you could tell from the first punch he took to the face he thought to himself "Oh Fuck I Might get my ass whooped"... Seriously let's get someone in there who can hold par rather then some guy who's gonna make pay by getting his ass beat for five rounds.. and herring got talked shit to because he talked shit before the fight.. Seriously Brock is a beast and will run the HW Division someday in the UFC like it or not..

PS: Good bye Matt Hughes! You will never ever beat GSP and your time has passed!

Hard to belive that there are still Matt Hughes fans after listening over and over again to his arrogant and low class comments. Yes, he was a good fighter in his little run with the welterweight title, but come on how can you like a guy that wines and complains and puts everyone down like that. He reminds me of my mother-in-law. I really liked the guy when he first won the title as he appeared to be humble in his interviews, but now, good god, I wish he would just join some diaper wearing religious cult and go away!!!

Man I hope Serra beats his ass!

Hughes gets sand in his vagina whenever a non-boring wrestler wins.

@Mattisacuntgina "and then disses st. peirre and finch’s fight which lasted 5 exciting rounds. What a dumbass. Oh, and im pretty sure Finch lasted what… 4 more rounds than Hughes did the last time he fought St. peirre so I wouldn’t exactly be critiqing Finch’s performance"

Stevie G.- August 11, 2008 at 10:23 am
And people give Matt Serra a hard time for repeatedly calling him a dick? I think a few more D-Bombs are in order, Mr. Serra.

are you fucking shitting me matt hughes? you are an arrogant cock sucker. GSP is 100 times the fighter you ever were or will be and 1000 times the man you will ever be. You are just a sore loser whiny bitch. GSP DOMINATED Fitch, it was an awesome fight. Fuck, the Lesnar fight was a yawn fest after 3 mins in to the first round
