Breaking news! Matt Hughes is a douche!

Extra extra, read all about it! Matt Hughes is a raging purple bell end! Amidst more random conversation about shooting guns and being manly, Hughes dropped the following science on Dan Henderson’s performance against Anderson Silva:

Anderson Silva ended up winning the title fight, I think if Henderson was in shape he could have lasted longer. I don’t know why somebody would go into a title fight not in shape and ready to go five rounds. Anderson looked tough but once again I saw holes in his game.

I’m not like 1000% sure (note: yes I am), but I think Hendo got knocked stupid on the feet and then subbed on the ground. I certainly didn’t see any signs of him gassing out. I’m also interested in knowing what holes Matt Hughes saw in his game.

All in all, I gotta look past the douchebaggery and hope this is yet another sign that Matt Hughes will move up in weight to challenge Silva by the end of the year. That way we can see how Matt does compared to Danny boy. Will Matt do as well as Henderson or do you think he’ll embarrass himself again like he did against Georges St Pierre?

    Hendo would over-commit to a big right and get double legged. Hughes would then ground and pound. And then win.

    I also called Hughes over Lindland at UFC 52.

  • Jemaleddin

    I thought Hendo looked gassed at the beginning of the second round.

  • Atom

    What is Hughes saying in the gif?

    “stop” ?
    ” tap, tap, tap” ?

  • Márcio

    Matt Hugues should be focused on beating the shit out of Serra. I dont know what he’s thinking but if he fights Silva he will only succeed in receiving the ass whoopin of his life. Not a great idea.

  • DannyP72

    Heres a hole in Andersons game; he has piss poor takedown defense

  • fightlinker

    I dunno exactly, but it’s certainly not “I love it! I love it!”

    Looks like at the end he’s screamin ‘Tap’

  • Stellar53

    I also thought Hendo was rather gassed at the start of the second round. If you watch the fight again, at the first break, Hendo could barely catch his breath.

    With that in mind, Matt Hughes is still a douche wad.

  • Lifer

    I think Matt “i’m the queen of the bible” Hughes needs to look at the holes in his own game and determine why he gets repeatedly exposed by the same man before assuming he can spot the holes in the game of yet ANOTHER fighter who’s skillset grossly outmatches his own.

  • Fightlinker is Wrong

    Hughes is just a cunt. I saw him on TUF 4 the other day when he was bad mouthing St.Pierre when took them out for limp dick sushi.

    Serra shared my similar thoughts on him being a piece of genitalia when he labeled him a “penis”.

    I see Hughes beating Serra and then moving up to fight Silva. Where he will get mauled.

    I can easily see Hughes getting hit with every strike in the book before achieving a takedown and then getting himself triangled.

    Fuck I hate him.

  • dignan

    Publicity whore.

    There isn’t much more to say about Hughes, unless he goes on a tirade about Krav Maga and Kalib Starnes, he and I may always be in disagreement.

  • frickshun

    Hughes is purely trying to get people hyped about a potential fight w/Silva. If it happens (which it probably will, since there’s no REAL comp for Silva), he will get picked apart worse than when GSP did it in their 2nd fight. Remember, every round starts on the feet! Silva might actually kick Hughes’ head clean off his body.


    We can only hope frickshun’s right. If I was there to catch it I’d nail gun that head to the inside of a glory hole toilet cubicle by its cauliflowered ears…

  • Erin

    Please, dear god, can Hughes move up to Middleweight? While watching him get his ass handed to him by silva won’t be quite as fun as watching it happen with GSP, it will still be fantastic to watch.

  • iki

    I think people are underestimating the Body Triangle that Anderson had Hendo in. It looked to me like that affected his judgement in exposing his neck.

    Now as to why he gave up his back so easy in the first place I’ll never know.

    Now let’s talk about all the reasons why Hughes could beat Silva.

    Yeah, we’re done here.

  • Anubis

    Despite being covered from head-to-toe in foreskin, Matt Huges is still a seriously good fighter. Sure he lost to GSP twice and BJ Penn, but those guys are pound-per-pound up there with Silva. The real question is does Hughes still have to will to fight and the heart to succeed? From what I can see today…no. He’s become a “talker” and a delusional bible thumping twit. It’s sad.

  • Thomas aka Hattori Hanzo

    If Hughes wants to fight Anderson he should have to defeat Dan Henderson first

  • toolverine

    Hendo was doing some heavy mouth breathing in between rounds. He definitely looked gassed.

  • Boondock

    Ah who cares Hughes is an arrogant dogshit sandwich that got rightfully fucked up by my boy GSP in rediculous fashion. He has no right to be looking for holes in other peoples game till he manages to get george’s foot surgically removed from his ass.

  • cyphron

    Another win, another excuse to downplay Silva’s win. Henderson, a guy who went 5 rounds with Rampage “gassed” early in the second. MMA fans are so delusional, it’s not even funny.

  • ruggertenthousand

    Look, you have to respect Hughes as one of the greatest champions ever in the UFC. Having said that, for the last year or so, his skills have clearly diminished coupled with the fact that the skill level of fighters is getting better everyday. Hopefully, the UFC would not insult us by putting Hughes in the ring with Silva.( he jumped the shark around the Gracie fight in ’06) Silva would destroy him, as well as St. Pierre. If Serra could knock out GSP, think of what Silva could do to him! BTW, Henderson did not gas…he was simply outclassed.
