The Masses Have Spoken: Hughes at #21


(Matt Hughes “taking it” from GSP.)

An entry on Matt Hughes’ official blog yesterday announced that his book “Matt Hughes – Made in America” has reached number 21 on the New York Times Best Seller List. Here’s the announcement:

We just got the NY Times bestseller list in, and MADE IN AMERICA is #21! Thanks to all the fans for making this happen.

I did in fact go to the New York Times website and did not see the former UFC welterweight champ’s book listed there. I was ready to scream bullshit, or cry wolf, or whatever else it is someone roars when they think they’ve been duped – or want to start a revolution. Then an edit popped up on Matt’s blog and it appears he may have pulled it off.

EDIT: If you go to the NY Times website, you will see a list posted there that is dated January 20th, 2008 and MADE IN AMERICA is not on that list. That list only reflects sales for the week ending January 5th. My book should be on the list for the week ending January 12th, which hasn’t been posted to their website yet; but it should be in a week or two.

-Matt

A book by an MMA fighter cracking the top 25 of the NY Times Best Seller List? Scandalous. It only paves the way for Chuck Liddell‘s book, “Iceman: My Fighting Life”, to smash literary records and find a place in the Oprah Winfrey Book Club. I can’t wait to see Chuck crying like a baby while sitting on the Oscar nominee’s sofa – which smells suspiciously like Tom Cruise’s urine.

Okay, I don’t want to really see that shit. Ever. Regardless, look for more MMA stars to start crapping out books. And they don’t even have to be stars. Hell, Tank Abbott is writing one. God, this could get ugly real fast.

Books lead to movies....the question what actor is going to play Matt Hughes?? and then who are they going to cast to play Tank Abott or Chuck Lidell.....Cause once these books become best sellers the next thing is Movies....

I kinda agree Damian although I’m not Matt’s biggest fan. I have respect for most MMA fighters apart from those who have no respect for anyone else. Matt has respect and is a fairly humble guy. Yeah he is a bit of a bible-basher and forces it a little but he’s a decent guy really. Unlike a lot of other MMA fighters who DESERVE to have shit talked about them. I think Matt Serra is a bit of a jerk. Jumped up midget with no class.

Why the hell do you always have to rag on Matt. You always have to him down. So he cant beat St.Pierre. He even admits that Georges better. Are you really that much of a front running douche bag that you cant pay respect to an MMA legend who has more than done his time? Or is it that you just dont like the man because he is one of the few people in the sport that also represent living a good family life rather than going out and partying all the other UFC stars
