Matt Hughes just killed several tons worth of animals

Man, are all those liberal hippies are gonna freak out when they see this. Our favorite Jesus loving, beast dominating fighter Matt Hughes just got back from safari in South Africa and he bagged himself some pretty serious game: several different species of antelope including some wildebeest, a kudu, a hartebeest, a gemsbok, and an eland. Go after the jump for all the grisly pictures, and we’ll update you when Dan Hardy sheds a tear for the poor widdle animals and challenges Matt to fisticuffs again.

    Super weird…

  • Mike

    Living with a tiny penis must be super hard for him…

  • Miles

    wow beautifull animals. Matt IS weird. Remember that TUF episode when he gave the fighters a bible and then asked them who am I in the bible….?? wtf

    Greetings from Sweden

    trolling PETA

    looks like canned photos with Hughes photoshopped

  • Steve

    Greetings from Sweden? Holy moly even Sweedes visit Fightlinker..?

    Is that how you say it.. Sweedes??

  • Miles

    Yupp a black swede at that hahah :)

  • Steve

    Ok. So it is a ‘swede’.. Ok good to know.

    How is the MMA scene in Sweden??

  • Steve

    Also – how do you kill something that big with a gun like that?

    Wouldn’t you have to shoot it like 80 times to even slow it down? Those things are gigantic.

  • hellpickle

    oh, look, it’s Matt being completely unlikeable again. yeay.

  • DJ ThunderElbows

    Holy shit – even for him that’s low. At least a deer can sprint away; these are animals who are very slow starters even if they can max out at a decent pace.

  • noiseless

    oh my god i don’t care

  • Reverend Clint

    im surprised hit tiny ass could handle the recoil of a rifle like that. Probably a .375 H&H which hits with about 4500 ft-lbs of energy, a .22 cal has about 150 ft-lbs and a .44 mag has about 1200.

  • Miles

    Yes swede is correct. The MMA scene is pretty good . We’v got Alexander Gustavsson and Reza Mad dog Madadi…we hade Papi Abedi also but he wasn’t really ready for that kind of heat. Concidering that proboxing and pro mma got legal 2-3 years ago (I know its fucking weird) I think we’r doing pretty good for such a small country….

  • Andy

    What a complete fucking asshole. Through and through.

  • frickshun

    You have these beautiful animals provided by nature. You have arrogant man who decides to kill something JUST BECAUSE it’s not man & they can.You have a typical middle America hillybilly with great disposable income. Rather than take his family on an African safari to show them how truly majestic a world “his god” created…..he chooses to kill everything he can so he can take a photo showing his dominance with a thunderstick. MAKES ME FUCKING SICK.

  • Reverend Clint

    well God gave man dominion over animals in the Bible and Matt loves him some Bible

  • PelhamPete

    No question- with these killings, Matt Hughes has totally lost my respect.
    I just noticed that not a one of them were shot in the head. This is just a guess but I’m thinking that had to be because he didn’t want to ruin their value as trophy mount?? Or maybe he is a lousy shot, which then makes me wonder how many animals he wounded in his wildlife killing spree (only to die later from their wounds).
    I don’t know who originally said it, but someone once pointed out: “While the hunter shoots in jest … the animal dies in earnest.” So true.

  • OlyReigns

    That’s a whole lot a bestiality going on right there.

  • Reverend Clint

    you dont shoot animals in the head pelham since they have very small brains and their skulls can deflect bullets. Heart/lung shot is the way to go.

  • drunkenjunk

    as much as I hate Hughes, people in South Africa hunt these animals frequently. Also most of them are huge and fast, so they have the same chance as elk here. No a fan of him, just don’t think its that big of a deal.

  • BeesKnees

    THANK YOU Fightlinker for not totally blowing this out of proportion like that bleeding heart Hardy. Isn’t it ironic that the people claiming Hughes is “ignorant” purely because he hunts are completely ignorant to the process of hunting, or even how guns work? Don’t knock till you try it, bitches.

  • Reverend Clint

    true dat beesknees, and im not even like hunting

  • glassjawsh

    . Classic example of penis envy

  • WHFM

    apparently the humane way to kill animals is to shoot them in the lungs.


  • Doogie Howser, M.D.

    Those animals aren’t dead. They’re all sleeping and Matt is just creeping up on them from behind to wake them up with some surprise anal penetration. Apart from that last one … that one’s on it’s period and Matt don’t touch that. The other dude’s gonna get well stuck in, though.

  • Voice of Reason

    I hope one day an alien kills him n his fam with lasers while he complains that its not fair

  • agentsmith

    I like how they intentionally took the pics from forced-perspective angles to make the animals look huge.

    I’m all for hunting if you actually eat the meat, but there’s no goddamn way he ate all that. Even Big Country couldn’t eat all that.
