January 1st didn’t just mark the beginning of 2008 or the end of Matt Hughes’ reign as the most dominant welterweight in the world, it also marked the day his book ‘Made In America‘ was released. You’ve already heard some of the juicy bits, and if they were written specifically to sell copies at the expense of poor bastard Tim Sylvia, it worked! I’m picking this up as soon as I finish reading William Shatner’s book on Star Trek conventions. Don’t ask.
Anyways, for those of you living in the States (especially you non-book readin’ people), Matt Hughes is on a tour to promote the book and here’s your chance to meet him. No word on if he’ll be as surly as he was pre-UFC79 but who can blame him for that? Jake wasn’t exactly all that hyped and fun during the leadup to his bitchslap, and you gotta imagine a GSP beatdown being about 1000 times more unpleasant than that.
