Tim Sylvia is a crybaby

I love Matt Hughes … he’s such a fucking bastard. Lots of people seem to take offense to this fact because he’s also pretty hardcore Christian, but hey … Jesus never said “Don’t be a prick”. Besides, I bet if you asked Matt Hughes if he was a dick, he’d probably say he preferred to be considered a ‘straight-shooter’. Check out this excerpt from his book where he’s doing some ‘straight shooting’ with Tim Sylvia (or just skim to the parts I highlighted, because they’re delightfully evil):

“Tim Sylvia walked over to me during practice. His back was hunched a bit, like Pat’s is, but Pat I could look in the face.

‘Can I talk to you a second?’ he asked.

“Sure thing.” He led me into an office and we sat down on two chairs.

“No one here’s got a problem with me except you,” he began.

“When I first started, Jens would say I’m a fat piece of s*** who’s never going to amount to anything, and he’d get me crying, but now even Jens likes me. Is there a problem?”

He was waiting for me to tell him there was a big misunderstanding or to apologise, like I wasn’t aware of what I was doing.

“Yeah, I really don’t like you,” I told him.

“I’m actually hurt to hear you say that. I’ve been a huge fan of yours for a long time and I’ve been trying to model myself on some of your work ethics, and the way Jens works out and stuff like that, and it’s too bad you feel like this.

There’s nothing more that I want than to be accepted by you and the rest of the guys.

“You don’t become accepted by buying yourself a ticket to Vegas, following us around while we’re there when no one really invited you, and then crying – again – when Jens calls you out on it.

“Is there anything I can do to be friends with you?”

“Well, right now I have enough friends and I don’t need any more friends,” I said. “Is that it? Are we done here?”

He let out a deep breath. “Yeah, I guess.”

“Good.” I got up and left.

Oh man … BRUTAL. Matt Hughes paints Tim as that annoying kid who just hangs around all the time that no one likes. And while most hearty Christian stories end with the outsider learning some life lessons and being included in the fold, this one ends with Matt Hughes basically saying “Fuck you you fucking crybaby bitch!” Now that’s a heartwarming Christmas story for your hearth!

Props to fellow jackal Dragomort for digging the excerpt up!

    Haha! Burn!

    I bet Hughes hangs out with that guy that’s in all the pictures with Tim’s girlfriend on her myspace page.

  • Mike O

    thats what i would say to tim sylvia too if he was all being that guy

  • Terrence Halladay

    hughes is a disgrace to christians and jesus would be ashamed of him for being such an asshole

  • Xavier

    Hughes is such a dickhead. He’s not a likable dickhead though, just a fucking dickhead.

  • Wu Tang

    Hey Tim cockblocked a student in Pats school.. He can get any girl (hopefully), but he took a STUDENTS GIRL? Thats fucked up… Matt is right to hate on Tim. Fuck i would hate tim too, bro’s before ho’s. If you do one thing, then it all adds up… Tim, you done fucked up man, you done fucked up…. Shit stainer.

  • ajadoniz

    lol oooooooooooooooo snap! i think i like hughes now.

  • márcio

    Seriously Hugues is too funny. He’s a fucking prick and he’s proud of it. I’m just picturing the former heavyweight champion of the world TIM “THE MANIAC” SYLVIA all teary eyes – All I wanna do is be accepted by you guys!

    Kinda makes my heart melt :p

  • Fred

    I think it’s funny. Hughes seems like a hard guy to know and like, but he gets the job done in the Octagon, and I’ll bet he’s more human to those he lets in his inner circle. Nothing wrong with that. If Tim ingratiated himself, then he set himself up for that reaction.

  • vess

    It’s like trying to get into the IN crowd in highschool. Poor Timmy.

  • Tommy

    That’s just what Jesus would have told Tim as well.

  • Lifer

    Matt must not have been able to sense the God in him.

  • operator

    Hughes is an asshole no doubt but you gotta like it when he turns on a giant skid mark like Sylvia. He was an asshole on TUF so I can imagine how much of an asshole he is when there’s no cameras roolling. At least you don’t have to guess what he’s thinking cuz he’ll just tell you.

  • Swedish guy

    ROFL, I love the way Hughes magically remembers this incident word by word (I didn’t bother to read the rest of the excerpt from his crappy shit book but I guess this happened some time ago), as if Sylvia actually would’ve said ” I’ve been a huge fan of yours for a long time and I’ve been trying to model myself on some of your work ethics”… MAN Hughes is a asshole.

  • dragomort

    The fact that this made print has me laughing my ass off. I wonder if Tim has a copy?

  • Matt (tapout name shitstain)

    More of a Hughes fan. Who would want to hang out with fucking Sloth anyway.

  • Tommy

    Seriously, Christians are the number one cause of Atheism.

  • Wu Tang

    Fuck that, Syliva is a douche!!! He cant get girls so he takes a girl that one of his training partner is trying to work on? Fucken retarded!

    Matt is cool, too cool for anyone, let along a shit stainer who picks up girls 10 years younger than him… FU Syliva, more pros for Hughes, Matt is a man when it comes go girls.. Too bad he cnat pleasure his :P

  • Jemaleddin

    Matt Hughes is the Emilio Estevez character from the Breakfast Club without the emotional awakening. Later in the book he probably tapes Sylvia’s buns together.

  • greg

    Doubt it went down word for word the way Matt makes it sound.Its what happened in his mind to keep his narcasistic ego larger than life It amazes me that Hughes claims to be a christian man. I believe he sees himself more as a god figure with a do as I say not as I do persona.He wants a structure to base all his bashing of others on,yet is not able to follow the structure himself! BECAUSE HE’S GOD…HE’ DOESNT HAVE TO FOLLOW ANYRULES ,HE JUST HAVE TO MAKE THEM FOR OTHERS TO FOLLOW. The mans brain isn’t wired correctly and he needs some major help[will never happen tho because in his mind he is infallible]I will pray for you matt

  • Tommy

    Hughes a Christian huh? I quoted several passages from the Bible about some of the things he’s said and done recently on his blog page. I even gave the address so he could look them up, they were erased and I was blocked from his site. Not that I’m saintly, in fact as a sinner I’m chief, but I don’t use Christ to gain fans. No different then on the recent UFC show it shows him farming and firing rifles, trying to gain his own fan base back.

  • MMANinja

    I loved it. Can’t wait to read more from the book.

    Past all the Christian stuff, Hughes tells it like it is, just like this fightlinker blog you love to visit and read. I bet Hughes would fit right in on the fightlinker team.

  • Accomando

    If I was a fighter, and was good, I would be just like Matt Hughes, not the religious part, but the being a dickhead part. I don’t care what anyone says, that Mo’ Fo’ is real, and Hughes always finds a way to piss off 90% of the people he is speaking too, just an amazing statistic.

    The guy is a Jackal, straight up. Hughes rules. I hope he just pounds GSP into submission and is champ again. Can you imagine what Hughes ego will be like if he does somehow actually beat GSP? Pulling for him, fingers crossed.

  • Mike_N

    Matt Hughes just keeps destroying the ceiling for dickish activities with every passing day. If he wins the title, I can’t wait to see him scold Joe Rogan for something in the post-match interview.

  • márcio

    I’m going with GSP, but you guys are right if Matt wins it will be one of the funniest things ever. It’s a win-win situation.
    Maybe we’ll be finally able to answer the age old question: How big can Matt’s head get before it explodes?

  • Drewdoodoo

    Hmmmm, big Tim still with MFS, Dickhead isn’t. Maybe everyone didn’t like him (Hughes) as much as he thought. Didn’t Rothwell have some less than flattering things to say about Hughes when he left? Something about shitting on Pat and the whole team? I kind of feel bad for Tim, oops, nevermind, I am over it.

  • MacDaddy

    I don’t like Tim Sylvia at all, because his fights are like group hug sessions and he’s got no skills at all, but Matt Hughes is the popular jock kid that used to try to bully me in high-school. He’s the football captain/track athlete that knows he’s not as smart as you are so he tries to fuck with you. That’s how I originally learned to fight, by letting guys like that feel like they could push me around without consequences, and then gouging their fucking eyes out the second they thought they were safe.

    While most of those fuckers have long since gone on to careers of digging holes and unplugging toilets, Matt Hughes has managed to stay on top of the heap by being that same asshole.

    Fuck you, Matt Hughes I hope there are some plugged toilets in your future.

  • BigFern

    MMA Ninja…you cant wait to read the book? wtf for? turd

  • dragomort

    Quite possibly the best book ever written ;)

  • MMANinja

    wtf for? cause there could be even more gems like this one.

    And cause he’s been so quite throughout his career until recently and cause it’s a free country, eh?

  • fightlinker

    I’m hyped to read it too!

  • Mobb Deep

    Hughes is just being himself and I can’t blame him for that. P.S. I’m looking to make a couple of bucks off that prick today. WAR Diiiiickhead.
