Steroids in MMA
Which MMA Fighter Will Test Positive For Steroids Next?

Photo of the Day: Matt Hughes Basically Tells PETA to Go F*ck Themselves

(Nah, he’s just sleepin’.) 

Well, at least he attained the proper tags. None other than former UFC welterweight champion and avid hunting afficionado Matt Hughes tweeted this picture early today, which was taken on a recent hunting trip he made to the Midwest. After more than a few of his followers had something to say about it, Matt responded with the following tweet:

Now, I know many of you are probably up in arms over the fact that Hughes would kill such a cute, defenseless animal; one he won’t likely be eating to boot. But allow me to lay some knowledge on you real quick. Bobcats, like the one in the above photo, are nasty, viscous, opportunistic little assholes. They are kind of like the Joe Son’s of the animal world, if you will, so before you start spouting off about what an “ignorant redneck” Matt Hughes is, just take a moment and watch this video, in which a rabid Bobcat attacks people in a bar. Think that would suck? Check out this story about a 62 year old Vietnam vet who had to strangle one to death to stop it from attacking him. In both cases, the Bobcats had rabies. So suck on that, PETArds *snicker* of the world.

Coming off back-to-back losses knockout losses to B.J. Penn and Josh Koscheck, perhaps we will be seeing Hughes on one of those MSNBC hunting shows before we see him in the octagon. Then again, if Dan Hardy has his way, Hughes may be called off the range sooner than later. Speaking of the Brits, have any of you ever seen a British hunting show? I just stumbled across one, and as is the case with most British television, it’s kooky as shit. Check it out.

I dont want to be mean or what but PETA has to do something too with the number of chickens killed everyday for food, also for the pigs you kill everyday for pork and the cows you kill for beef. Im a vegetarian btw. I love animals very much. I know what Matt Hughes did was very wrong but we have to see how much more animals do we kill each day for food. :)

oh, btw, I do hunt, but I don't get much enjoyment out of it anymore. Everything is fed to my dogs, except guts. I would not kill a cat unless it was a problem. Before I had dogs I wouldn't kill a bear. That's because I like them. I do not frown on anybody that hunts either for enjoyment.
dthrckt- January 5, 2012 at 5:13 pm
actually, now you sound fairly logical and coherent.
natural predators do not always eat what they kill. From your house cat to wolves and lions...they have all been observed taking prey and not eating a bite. I see absolutely no need to justify killing legal game - livestock protection, food, pelts, or just for fun - it doesn't matter. If it bothers you, fine, say what you like - but don't get in the way.

Matt Hughes is an ignorant redneck.

And that has nothing to do with hunting.

p.s. seriously captcha? a triangle and the money sign for yen? you're just fucking with us now, aren't you captcha?

I re-read what I wrote earlier and I don't think I really made it clear that I don't give a shit if people hunt. I've never hunted, but I've eaten a shitload of meat that was grown on factory farms, which is an even worse treatment to animals. I don't really think people hunt because they are psychos or have small weiners, that was just a joke. I just would like guys like Matt Hughes to be honest and say that they get some enjoyment out of hunting. Or at the very least stop acting like it's some chore they are doing for the betterment of society.
And as far as the 'population control' argument goes, I think what most people see as an increase in population is actually the same number of animals being pushed closer and closer together due to urban sprawl. I seriously doubt there are that many species that have actually increased in numbers since the industrial revolution, unless they happen to be non-native invasive species that are introduced by humans.

Ha ha! Good eye, Machiavelli, but just how often can you point out someones stupidity? I had to prioritize, and the "Bobcats should be shot because some of then were rabid at one point" argument was just so asinine.
(For Danga: Asinine means "foolish or 'like an ass'")
Machiavelli- January 5, 2012 at 6:34 am
I cannot believe that no one called Danga out on his 'viscous' bobcat. Really? Viscous? Like oil? C'mon, can you say vicious instead? I'll accept that they are vicious, they have to hunt for their food after all.

@Jesus Frijoles - Well said and thank you for interjecting with your experience and rational thought.
JPfighter-DAMMA- January 5, 2012 at 6:05 am
So, the argument is that a bunch of dumb drunk hicks with guns are the balancing-point for our ecology? Riiiiight. If that's the case, then they better start shooting humans then, because we are far more overpopulated than any other species on the planet.
jake8267- January 5, 2012 at 5:27 am
For those of you making the "hunting for fun is wrong" argument I'd like to point out the fact that should those who hunt for entertainment suddenly stop participating in their hobby a couple of extremely negative side effects will result. First, over population of a large number of species will result in problems in both the human world (more deer getting hit by cars or livestock being killed by coyotes) as well as nature (research what happened a while back when a number of states signifigantly lowered the limit on Canadian Geese). Second, the vast majority of funding for preservation comes from hunting fees and groups. Without hunters most of that funding would dry up. The fact is that people who hunt for entertainment do provide a service for the rest of us, whether we like to admit it or not.
Kimbo Lesnar- January 5, 2012 at 5:05 am
ALL THE ABOVE SAID, I to have to (painfully) agree with Matt Hughes on one point. Why the hell would you go to his site if you had a problem with seeing him pose like a douche over an animal carcass? It's not like there isn't precedent here...
justscrappin- January 5, 2012 at 12:33 am
I grew up with avid Hunters. I can't sit somewhere long enough to want to wait and shoot something...too a.d.d. Ill eat the hell out of some venison or elk..or anything that is there are enough of to not wipe out the species. I think if they are overpopulated...and the meat can be used, do it. I think you should be able to kill them if they are rabid or acting crazy. If they are a nuisance to the point they are causing serious issues in their habitat..yeah thin them out. I don't see why someone would just go out looking for one to kill...that you aren't going to eat...and isn't posing danger to you or your family or their natural habitat. I don't want endangered animals killed. Yeah...fuck peta. I'm a weigh both sides of every issue dude. Let's use logic and common sense. Fuck Matt Hughes. That is all.
JPfighter-DAMMA- January 4, 2012 at 10:27 pm
Hunting for survival makes sense. It's human & animal instinct, and is part of the food chain of survival.

Hunting for sport is plain ridiculous. To be proud of killing a cat with a gun is like being proud of throwing rocks off an overpass on oncoming traffic.

Tell you what, pro-hunters...let's designate areas in our countries for hunting. You go hunt for animals, and I come hunt for you. Fair is fair. How does that sound? Sounds fantastic to me.
cecils_pupils- January 4, 2012 at 9:54 pm
Yeah... I like that better. Animals are tasty.
RwilsonR- January 4, 2012 at 8:29 pm
@ Knurft - yes, I do understand the delicate balance of ecosystems, and that they are only occasionally as delicate as extremists would have you believe. In some reasonable cases... sure. In every case, every animal, every insect, every rodent... it's not always a huge loss. Ecosystems change, and plenty of species have gone extinct or evolved long before man got involved. I said I'm for reasonable conservation. Reasonable.
@ ghostboner - well said.

If you are in a remote area and you start trekking, hungry, and you sneak up on something, kill it and eat it, you're a baller... Native American way. If you feed an animal in the same spot for 364 days, and one day you shoot it when it goes for the food, you're a douchebag.
ghostboner- January 4, 2012 at 6:23 pm
@danomite - There is no double standard. Hunting bobcats is legal, killing someone's domesticated pet is not. Matt Hughes broke no laws. He did not try to justify it, Danga did, and wrongfully so because no justification is necessary. All the things you surmise about why Matt likes to kill animals are the same assertions people use to speculate why we would enjoy mma. We are just a bunch of skinheaded, homosexual, tatooed up whiteys with tiny peni and psychological problems, because how else could anyone enjoy watching 2 grown men beat the crap out of each other, right? Wrong. You just choose to draw your line creatively and include violence(mma) while excluding violence(hunting). Which is fine, if one suits you and the other does not. They are both legal and I see no reason why they should be otherwise, and that is where I draw my line.
Knurft- January 4, 2012 at 3:17 pm
What will Hughes educate the 'PETA idiots' then? Just wondering. Oh and Matt Hughes is a dick, going all tough on abit of criticism. Time you get some education so you can come up with decent arguments instead of using lame offences.

@Rwilsonr You do realise that if plants/insects go extinct it may have an effect to certain mammal species? Just saying.
Also, i remember something about bee populations going down.
THAT does actually concern me, as i like to eat. And yes, i'm too lazy to look up for some link containing the subject.

"PETA idiots" is Huckelberry Dumbfucks version of "TUF Noob".

Did Hughes RNC or GNP the bobcat? What the fuck does the validity of hunting have to do with mma, other than Matt Hughes killed a bobcat? Let's change this discussion to the validity of womens mma, and if Carano and Rousey should bump uglies.....
TheWarsawExpress- January 4, 2012 at 1:53 pm
Yall are just haters. As you can clearly see, Matt Hughes is in the process of getting some fans by seeing how his oppoenent is doing after the fight. I think this is a sign that Hughes might be showing up at team Jackson before his next bout.
Buster Hyman- January 4, 2012 at 1:52 pm
