52  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Chael Sonnen - I'm back bitches on: June 20, 2014, 05:28:07 PM
......just not in the UFC

Chael Sonnen may have retired from MMA, but that doesn’t mean he won’t compete again.

The former UFC middleweight and light heavyweight title contender has agreed to enter the Metamoris 4 mat in a no-gi match against two-time jiu-jitsu world champion and ADCC winner Andre Galvao, sources told MMAFighting.com. BJEE.com reported the news earlier this week.

Metamoris 4 takes place in Los Angeles on Aug. 9.

A decorated wrestler, Sonnen earned five of his 28 professional MMA victories via submission, notably against Mauricio Rua and Brian Stann. Galvao returned to grappling after a 5-2 run in MMA and won the ADCC 2011 weight and absolute divisions, defeating the likes of Rousimar Palhares and Gunnar Nelson. He became the ADCC 2013 superfight winner with a submission over Braulio Estima.

 Josh Barnett vs. Dean Lister is also set for Metamoris 4.


Interesting since bJJ isnt one of Chaels stong points. Good for Metamoris. That should help get get the promotion more attention. Guess he changed his mind about choosing his health over his sport.

The tapout founders were sponsoring mma fighters back when there were very few sponsors and mma was considered illegal. Its unfortunate that their brand is now associated with wannabes.

That's the classic hearsay that fuel the myth... Challenged on set and not one single recording of what happened, funny stuff... I also had some "streetfights" when i was in school, does that make me a fighter? Hell no... Don't believe this stuff, he was an actor, not a fighter...

Its not hearsay - its from credible witnesses who were actually there. A recording? Yeah cause everyone back then had camera phones and filmed everything that happened. Roll Eyes.

One of the most bizarre asumptions people tend to make is they view movie fights as though thats how a martial artist would actually fight in real life. Acrobatics, squaring off, taunts etc. When filmed martial artists often overexaggerate everything for the camera. Kicks are fancier and done slower to look more impressive for the camera.

Bruce pointed out several times that no one fights for real like they do in a camera. A real fight is nasty brutish and doesnt involve fancy moves. Van damme once stated that he'd never do his camera style moves when he actually competed. Chuck Norris was another guy who echoed the same sentiment.  Maybe you think bruce would start a real fight with a stance, pause a few seconds to glower at his opponent and frequently make yipping sounds when he threw a punch or kick. Yeah thats how he really throws down right?


That was one the fundamentals of bruce Lee's research and practice into fighting - how to finish off your opponent off as quickly and directly as possible. Bruce lee learned martial arts specifically because he was losing as many fights as he won in hong kong. He was part of a gang in hong kong and gangs usually squared off against each other constantly He chose wing chun because it was the most direct and efficient style he could find at the time. He later evolved it to add boxing, wrestling, thai kickboxing, basically anything that helped to win a fight. He was the real deal. He was a fighter who got into acting. Not the other way around. Same as chuck norris, van damme, and several others. He also trained world champions lime Joe Lewis and chuck Norris.

 Go ask some old school genuine fighters like bob wall, bill wallace, blinky rodriguez, jeff Smith or benny urquidez if he was a fake and watch them laugh at your ignorance. Look at some of the interviews done with gene la belle, a real old school wrestler,tough guy and stuntman. Gene said many times that bruce is the real deal.

Movie fights are exaggerated for your entertainment. Oddly enought before bruce Lee movies old kung fu movies had even more exaggerated flowery style fighting and the reason bruce lee movies became popular was because audiences thought  that the fights in big boss looked more real than anything they had seen in the past. Thats what catapulted him to fame.Martial arts movies have evolved again to the popularity of MMA. Now you see armbars, triangles etc making their appearance in movies in order to keep up with reality.

Apparently vitor has been pulled from the 175 card since there is no official opponent. This means that he doesnt have to face the NSAC inquiry because he no longer needs to apply for a licence to fight in Nevada...for now.  Wanderlei has been called in for an inquiry about his avoiding a drug test but if wandy isnt assigned to compete anytime soon he may be able to duck the NSAC as well.

I've got a hunch that Chaels retirement might be temporary. He got himself off the NSAC crosshairs and may unretire once he figures out how to circumvent the system. I wouldn't bet on it but I wouldnt be surprised to see him return by the end of the year or maybe next year if the price and opponent is right. Anderson is scheduled to return in 2015. He would need a tuneup fight. A tuneup fight with selling power. Chaels that guy.

Awesome rhetorical question there boss!

I say INNOVATOR! Chael will end up doing SOMETHIN great....dude is talented beyond fighting.

You're right.

He made anderson Silva into a superstar. Silva really got elevated thanks to Sonnen selling the first fight with all the trash talking and nearly winning. Everyone was waiting for the rematch. In wrestling terms sonnen played the perfect heel character to put over Anderson and was working on getting wanderlei over until wanderlei lost the plot and instead turned Chael into a babyface.

He also stepped up to take fights on short notice and in the process elevated his own career as an analyst on FOX. Well spoken and smart like a fox when it came to creating opportunities for himself. I wouldnt be surprised if he became a promoter for the UFC down the road. White made statements that effect that he thought Chael would be the best replacement for him.


57  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Chael Sonnen Retires - Cheater or a Quitter? on: June 11, 2014, 05:41:47 PM
The answer is both.
Chael announced his retirement from mma with a record of 28-14-1

He'll probably be back once he and his doctor figure out a better way to beat the system.
Entertaining guy nontheless. He'll probably continue as an analyst.

This is all Dana White's fault.

That eightball uncle fester looklike clearly refused to let Renzo back in the Octagon for one last match. What's a gracie gonna do? He had to take it to the street to get a win to get back into title contention. Had this fight taken place in the cage the security guard could have tapped out before getting his elbow broken. Steve Mazzagatti the best ref in the business could have been reffin this barnburner match. What a royal clusterfuck. Renzo may be looking at prisontime. All because Dana can't keep his ego in check and do what's best for the sport.

Fuck you Dana and fuck the uniforms you're trying to dress the fighters in.

Teasers

"I got him in like 40 submissions and I couldn't finish any of them, he was so strong. I actually put him in a guillotine, lifted him off the sheet, and ran him into the wall. He went limp and was unconscious for a second. I let go of the choke. He slumped down to his knees, woke up, and fricking power-doubled me all the way across the room, slammed me on my back, and kept going.

"Afterwards I said, ‘Okay, what are you on?’ Because there’s no way anybody can be this strong and not be on steroids. And he goes, ‘What do you mean?’ I said very bluntly, ‘What kind of fucking steroids are you taking?’ And he turns to me and gets angry and says, "That's an insult. I've never been on drugs in my life. Don't ever say that to me again.’ That's just the way he was. He was a naturally cock-strong farm boy with killer instincts."

---—
White caught on to what Cox had done, and became livid.

"Dana calls me back, ‘You guy, you’ll never do business again in this sport again, you think you can fuck with me? And I go, ‘Dana, if we don’t honor the contracts, why have contracts at all?’"

—---

"The funniest thing was a show that we call the Sioux City Slaughter," he says, remembering the carload of killers he drove out to Plymouth County. "I brought up Matt Hughes, Mark Hughes, Jens Pulver, Nate Schroeder, all good guys. The guy I was partnering with out there didn't even advertise the show. There was like 32 people in there. I am pleading with my guys to take it easy on theirs.

"First fighter comes out, Mark Hughes. Picks the guy up, body slams him, over -- eight seconds. Next fight was Jens. I go, ‘Jens, I need time. Help me out.’ Jens kicked the guy in the head, broke his nose, dropped him, done in 25 seconds. The next one went 17 seconds. We’d literally been gone for five minutes, and I only had four fights left.

"I told my wife, ‘Go get the car, take it around back, and get all the shit. We’re gonna get out of here!’ The next fight went 30 seconds. The one after that went about 50 seconds. During intermission, the next fighter comes to me and he says, ‘I don't think I want to fight.’ He's watching his guys get killed. I go, ‘You’re the smartest guy here.’ My guys just slaughtered them. Matt Hughes got paid 100 bucks for that. To this day, whenever I see him, he says, The Sioux ... City ... SLAUGHTER."

62  Getbig Misc Discussion Boards / Mixed Martial Arts (MMA/UFC) / Vitor Belfort: 'I feel like an animal' without TRT on: May 05, 2014, 08:00:45 PM
Belfort dropped TRT and is back to training and says he feels great without the therapy, but his testosterone levels are far from the normal range.

"I feel like an animal," he said. "The Holy Spirit gives me everything I need. I’m training like an animal. Nobody trains harder than me.  Undecided

"My hormone stays at 200 today, and the normal range is from 300 to 800. (TRT) raised my levels to a normal range according to the commission. My hormone was at the same level of my opponents’, so they are in advantage now."

According to the Brazilian, the commission decided to ban TRT because he was knocking people out in the UFC.

"You have TRT in baseball, basketball and many other sports," he said. "Unfortunately, it became a myth (in MMA) because I was knocking people out. That was the problem, and not Chael Sonnen, Frank Mir and Dan Henderson using it."

"After TRT was banned, Dan Henderson fought Shogun (Rua) with TRT," Belfort continued. "That’s funny because a Brazilian can’t use TRT there (in the United States), but an American can fight here. If TRT exists in many others sports, why can’t it exist in MMA? If gives you no advantage, it only puts you at the same level of the other athletes.

"People say ‘oh, so you should retire.’ Yeah, you want me to retire so you won’t get knocked out. I won’t retire. I will be back and I will win."

63  Getbig Misc Discussion Boards / Mixed Martial Arts (MMA/UFC) / Chael Sonnen credits Paul Heyman for saving TUF on: May 05, 2014, 07:58:02 PM
When Chael Sonnen went to Brazil for nine weeks to coach the third season of The Ultimate Fighter Brazil, he thought he prepared himself for every possible scenario.

The basic concept of his run on the show was simple and natural. He was going to be hated, since Wanderlei Silva is a legendary older native fighter whose career and body of work speaks for itself. While it doesn't happen every season, in the most notable seasons of The Ultimate Fighter, it comes down to conflicting coaches. While good guy and bad guy may sound and really is simplistic generally speaking, in conflict, fans will pick and choose. And in Brazil, they aren't likely to be picking an American who was best known for unleashing verbal barrages against a national hero in Anderson Silva.

But very quickly, Sonnen was thrown for a loop. He sensed the roles were reversing, that Silva's antics were going to make Sonnen popular in Brazil, something he didn't think was how it should be. And it's not what he wanted. While in Brazil, largely out of communication with the U.S. past the Internet, he went to someone for advice. He knew, given that everything on the show had to be kept confidential, he'd have to confide in someone he ultimately could trust, because he had signed non-disclosure agreements. Out of seven billion people on the face of the Earth, he chose Paul Heyman,

Paul Heyman is, if nothing else, a brilliant pro wrestling character. He was the mastermind behind Extreme Championship Wrestling in the 90s, and for the last 13 years, has worked on-and-off with World Wrestling Entertainment, at times behind-the-scenes, and at other times as a television character. He's had a string of well-publicized real-life breakups and makeups with the ruling McMahon family. Those who know both would say there are a number of similarities between the Sonnen and Heyman, in that both are strong self-promoters with a gift of gab, and a way of talking themselves out of trouble.

Heyman is known by many in MMA, because he worked with Lesnar during his UFC run, and there was a solid  chance he would have wound up with a promotional position in Strikeforce before that company was sold to UFC.

"I've never met him, but I know what he's done," said Sonnen.  "He's a little bit older than me, so I felt I could trust him. I'm breaking a confidentiality agreement but there were circumstances where I was jammed up and I had to make an executive decision."

And while it may be an overstatement, Sonnen credits him for saving the season.

"It was crazy," Sonnen said about his early interaction with Silva. "He gave me the silent treatment for ten days. I never knew what I'd get. It could be passive aggressive, aggressive, just passive, angry, or confrontational. Every day I had to take his temperature. I didn't know what mood I was going to see him in. Some days he'd walk right past me, and that was a good day, with no shoulder bump, and no scowl. Some days I'm coming in and he would put in his mouthpiece, like we're about to fight."

"To say he was ruining the show may be extreme, but the interaction between he and I is an element of the show that's important. There has to be the interaction of the coaches. It's an important factor. I didn't know what to do. I didn't know how to handle this.  This is the same time I'm losing my grip  on my character as a heel. I can feel it slipping away. He's being aggressive. He's skipping practices. He's partying. I don't know what to do. I don't know how to handle this."

Sonnen said he was at a loss for how to overcome it, because at the time, he didn't know if the Silva silent treatment would last another 50 days. So he got an e-mail address for Heyman, and contacted him. Heyman at first wondered if it was a practical joke, because while he certainly knew of Sonnen, he didn't know him.

"Paul was a guy that even without knowing him, I knew I could trust him," said Sonnen. "We have mutual friends, Brock Lesnar and (former pro wrestling headliner) C.M. Punk. I knew he was an expert in psychology and I was stuck, working through this spot, having to deal with this, him not talking to me and the reversal of roles that I didn't see coming."

"He told me, `Listen, you have to shoot (be completely real, not holding back verbally) on him. If he's not playing along, you have to drop everything and shoot on him.'  He laid it out a lot more aggressive than that. `You have to drop everything and come clean.' He went into it a lot more detail than that."

"In many ways, Paul Heyman saved Ultimate Fighter (Brazil) 3. He kept his word. He kept his secrecy up."

"So not only should we thank Paul for the huge ratings, but we can also blame him for all the bad things."

Sonnen said the entire time he was there, he was never sure there would be the big fight, mostly because Silva wasn't training and he thought that was strange.

"My feeling going into it was that it was a little shaky," said Sonnen. "My only piece of evidence is he wasn't working out on the set of The Ultimate Fighter. The Ultimate Fighter gym is the best mixed martial arts gym, they spend top dollar for every piece of equipment you might need. Then the fight broke out and I know after I felt him, I was surprised."

He was a little smaller, a little weaker and a little slower than I expected. He may have been surprised the other way."

In the quick skirmish, Silva threw a wild punch, Sonnen ducked and took him down on the concrete. Silva said he injured both his hand and his back. He went to the hospital to get his hand checked out, since he threw bare knuckle punches from the bottom at Sonnen. Sonnen was sucker punched several times by Silva's assistant coach, Andre Dida, while on top.

"I felt like I was okay, but I had dialog with some guys, including one guy in production the next day and he told me the dialog wasn't coherent the next day. I told him a story that I thought was a pretty good story, but I wasn't getting much of a reaction. He said, `The problem is, you told me the story yesterday.'"

Sonnen said his head certainly hurt, and he had some lumps, but he didn't feel like he had to go to the hospital.
But Sonnen concedes that even though he got the better of the first physical altercation, the fight on July 5 in Las Vegas will be totally different. And while he'll verbally take shots at Silva, he also recognizes the fight won't be a day in the park.

"This won't go down in a 30-second match," he said. "We're going to have to work hard. I can tease Wanderlei, but he's got tremendous heart, he hits extremely hard, especially early. He's a little wild, but if the shot lands, I'm not above being in trouble."

I did not speak up till you started hitting Below the belt,and I'm not the type that wants to go back and forth with this nonsense for the kid type attention you seek. You said gh15 would forgive child Rape for kigs,Talked about personal pm's on public board,Gh15 loves kids tells all to stay away from drugs and has helped so many. This man has a kind love for dogs also,has helped raise monies for many. This man would never except someone violating a kid,Fella all I could say that this is below the belt,as you could have worked out any problems via pm's,But you choose to take personal information public. This is not the mark of a man. As far as you posting fake gay for pay stuff about me,Shows guys in the know what a fraud you are. A fifty year old man that seeks kid like attention.

Of course you don't want me to respond. You just want to state your case and leave it at that. You know that if you go back and forth with me you will lose. You know how I argue and debate. I stand on the side of truth and can pick apart any argument you will have. Like I will do right now.

First of all I said gh15 told me he would forgive -b- for all his crimes if he could provide him with legit kigs. It just goes to show what kind of moral compass he has. Now, using hyperbole (look it up) it makes one wonder if there is anything that wouldn't be accepted if only he could get his precious hands on some compound to make his aging body LOOK better. That all that seems to matter to this "immortal god" is having a good body and big muscles. And he will be willing to over look crimes and the suffering and pain that was cause to others just so he can look good in a tank top when he's shopping at Walmart. It highlights his spiritual shallowness. That's what's wrong with that.

And you talk about real men settling it one on one and not on a public board. Do you not have any idea how stupid you sound? How every one on this thread is now howling with laughter in disbelief, frustration and anger. How everyone would like nothing more than for gh15 to come out of hiding and reveal himself and go "one on one". There would be a long, long line to "settle it one on one" with gh15.

And it was I who trusted him. It was I who stood by him and defended him for so many years. It was he who told lies to me. It was he who has proven to be a fraud. He is no IFBB pro. He admitted he was a drug dealer back in 1999 and now claims never to have been a dealer. He claims that he works with the DEA and international government agencies, he claims to have a top level position in the government and has sat with Presidents, he claims there was an assassination attempt on his life, he claims to be a multi-millionaire, he claims that he has bribed a mod on this board and controls what's goes on here...  the list of lies is endless. He's a fraud and a phony. And he has no idea how many people on his board right this very moment think the same way.

And I betrayed him.

So who are you? Why don't you tell me who you are on the gh15 board? What are you afraid of?

Come on, gh15, bring on somebody that can come close to challenging me. Now that you don't have a "Palius" to fight for you is this the best you can do? Is this all you have left?

NEXT!

Quite the wordsmith aren't ya.

I recall the drug dealer post made by dealer15. Dr Chimps used to tag him repeatedly with the " dealer" accusation which 'ol Gh would deny. I've never known chimps to make stuff up and sure enough someone posted gh's exact quote where he acknowledges being a dealer shortly afterwards.

Gh15 is a twister. He used to accuse coach of being one but in reality he was the biggest twister on the board and elsewhere.

Karma is a bitch and soon the gh15 reign will be coming to an end - and getbig will have a front row seat for that impending splashdown.

Check your own ego,Your not as important as you think. In my book you betrayed everyone of us on that board when you took this public. Do me a favor don't bother responding,As I will never give you any attention that you seek. Very low class what you said about this great man. Shame on you. You betrayed us.


This great man? Hah. A drug dealer and a proven liar is referred to a " great man" Cheesy
Amazing how far addicts will go to get their fix. Intelligence and rational thinking are obviously the first jettisoned.

As far as low class goes dealer15 allowed low class fools to run rampant throughout his board with his blessings. Posting personal threats and issuing hits with his blessing. Anyone with any modicum of intelligence would never allow that type of neanderthal behaviour on a board he runs. You want to talk about low class? That there is a perfect example of a low class wannabe pretending to be a god" when all he really is is gutter trash.

Maybe you clowns better check your own ego before your board gets taken offline....again. Cheesy

Lets not forget father time- old man couture who was in his forties or coose to it when he won the lh belt and was past his forties when he won the Hw belt. Couture didnt have the sheer athleticism or speed that Anderson displays. He fought smart and usually came out on top. Anderson hasnt shown much slowdown despite his age. Nevertheless Weidman may be his krptonite since he did get clipped briefly before the leg break. Weidman looked very good and was holding his own unlike most of Anderson opponents. Its a safe bet that a rematch is inevitable when Silva returns. He may retire but I think his pride will push him back to the octagon. His doctor mentioned that silva kept asking him how long before he can resume training. He has enough money to afford the best treatment and the UFC won't let their cash cow off that easy. We'll see soon enough. Right now its just opinions and speculation.

Anderson will be back. There was a doctors report released and apparently he should be able to train again within 6-8 months if the healing process works well. His doctor said that the leg is now reinforced and would never break again. How he recovers psychologically is what will get him back in the octagon. For a competitior like Silva i'd figure he'd be back by  2015. If his recovery goes well he may be back late 2014 in time for a december rematch.

I don't see vitor running through weidman. His phenom thing works only when he's on top. When things dont go his way he folds mentally. I haven't seen any different over the years. Belfort needs to connect and finish the fight soon before weidman drags him into deep waters and drowns him.

Jacare souza - the guy to watch for.

I really am out of town without the book, but the outcry for a conclusion has been so great that I actually went to Borders books last night and read chapter 14 so I could post my synopsis today.

Matt begins this chapter by telling a story about him insulting Joe Riggs......in front of Joe's wife. Apparently a few months after Matt beat Joe, he ran into Joe and his wife somewhere. Joe introduces Matt to his wife, and Matt says, "Hi, I'm Matt, I'm the guy that beat up your husband a few months ago." Matt says everyone laughed, except for Joe and his wife, which led me to wonder who "everyone" was. He also mentions, for some unknown reason, that he had sex with his wife in Pat Miletich's room,the day before his fight with Riggs. It's said almost with the overtones of Matt being a "playboy" or something like that. I guess it's better than being proud of sleeping with someone besides her like he described earlier.

Next he takes time to talk about how he basically owned Brock Lesnar when he came to train with MFS, submitting him with ease. He also talks about not being impressed with Lesnar in several ways. One, he wasn't impressed with his wrestling credentials, because Matt himself was every bit as much an elite wrestler. Two, and even more amazing, he says he was surprised that Lesnar "wasn't that big," only 6'2" or 6'3". This is coming from a guy who's pushing 5'8". That's like Jason Reinhardt being surprised by how many cans Chuck Liddell has fought.

We then move to his fight with Royce Gracie, or as Matt refers to him sarcastically "the ninja." After basically trashing everything the Gracie's, and Royce in particular, have accomplished he then goes on to talk about how he wasn't worried about Gracie at all. He knew he was a myth. He describes their fight, and says he was again surprised by how much better was on the ground than Royce "the ninja". At one point he even says that Royce didn't seem to know what he was doing from the bottom, and wasn't even trying to counter anything Matt was throwing at him. He also intimates the fact that he really wanted to break Royce's arm, but had to settle for a choke.

The chapter finishes up with him and Liddell being at Disney World together with their families, and all but calling Chuck an attention whore. Matt says he tries to steer clear of attention in public, but Chuck makes sure everyone notices who he is.

Another thing I've noticed Matt mentioning repeatedly in the book is that he's red headed. He said it at least 5 times now. My question is, when did that become something people brag about? Every red headed kid I ever knew took shit for their hair. But Matt embraces it.

Something else that is really hard to stomach that keeps surfacing in the book is the fact that Matt loves manual labor. He only agreed to go to Mexico on the missionary trip because they promised him he'd be doing "manual labor." He constantly congratulates himself for his farm bred work ethic saying at one point, "Hey, if there's some sort of work to be done, you know I'll be there."

Chapter 15

Matt starts by describing how he intentionally got an argument going between Matt Serra, and Mark Laimon on TUF. He goes on to talk about while he was there he could tell that George St. Pierre was afraid of him. He says St. Pierre is the last person he'd want on his side in combat or a street fight because it's one thing to be tough in a cage, and another to be tough in a street fight in an alley. Apparently Matt now also fancies himself a street fighter. Someone should remind him that it's one thing to be tough while kicking your dad's ass alone, but a completely different thing to be tough while kicking your dad's ass with your brother.

Next, Matt quotes his wife bitching about something during which she drops 2 F-bombs. Really classy lady imo. Matt then reneges on a promotional appearance he was scheduled for.

Matt's wife then has a C-section, and Matt comments that the doctor had red hair. I still don't know what the deal is with the constant focus on red hair.

Not long after the birth a Mom is again hospitalised when she is feeling sick, and that's when the details get a little sketchy and the story takes a strange turn. Without explaining clearly why, Matt claims to have jumped on top of his wife while she was laying in the hospital bed recovering, and she forcefully pushed him off. He fell backward and hit his head on a table, and was momentarily dazed, almost knocked out. What is it with surgery and sex with this guy?

Chapter 16

Matt begins the final chapter of his illustrious literary work by talking to Pat Miletich about his upcoming rematch with BJ Penn. Matt says he was a little unsure of himself when taking that match. His nerves were calmed, however, when looking across the cage at BJ he noticed, and I quote, "that silver spoon's been putting a lot of food in his mouth, he looks plain fat."

He goes on to describe how he was absolutely dominating the stand-up in that fight. I for one was wondering if he was talking about the same fight I saw. He says that Tito was yelling encouragement to BJ and Mark Hughes told him that he'd better shut up. I'm sure Tito was petrified.

BJ tried a dirty move by poking him in the eye, but that didn't stop Matt's domination of the stand-up. Big John then stopped the fight. And Mark
Hughes continues telling Tito that "he's nothing, he's nobody, he's a freaking idiot."

GSP stole Matt's glory by showing no class when he came in the cage and said he was not impressed. Matt responds in true badass street fighter style by telling GSP, "you just showed me who you really are." No, Matt, he'll show you who he really is on two separate occasions in the months to come.

After some redneck bullshit where Rachel Leah got burned twice and some guy almost died on an ATV at Hughes' farm we fast forward to the GSP fight. Matt says GSP only started beating him after kicking him in the balls twice, and that he wasn't even knocked out when Big John stopped the fight. His next fight he destroys Chris Lytle.

Something else in the book that I couldn't bear to write about is Matt's use of "the witchdoctor." He never goes into great detail, but apparently the witchdoctor is a faith healer that hangs around Matt all of the time.
The book ends with Matt laughing about GSP losing to Serra, and him being excited enough about fighting Serra to coach TUF again. He then walks outside to breathe that "fresh Hillsboro country air."

Apparently the review was done by sean mccorkle

I just bought a copy of Matt Hughes book, and am in 3 chapters already. It is borderline unbelievable. I figured from all the FRAT postings that not everyone on the UG is a big reader, so I'm doing you all a favour. I'm reading it for you and providing a synopsis, chapter by chapter. As astounding as some of this sounds, everything I post is actually in the book. Here it goes:

Chapter 1

Matt talks about growing up on a farm, and what repulsive little brats he and Mark were growing up. To this day, he thinks their childhood "mischief" like breaking shit all the time, being disobedient to their parents, and being cruel to animals is funny. After reading chapter one, you'll find yourself thinking, "Somebody should have beat those kids asses"

Chapter 2

Matt talks about how he and Mark virtually hated each other in jr. high, and high school. He also talks about how he was better, and smarter than Mark at everything.

Chapter 3

Things take a very interesting turn in chapter 3 when Mark and Matt's father has the balls to scold Mark for riding a motorcycle without a helmet. Without letting him finish, the Hughes brothers, physically attack their father, and beat the shit out of him, finally showing him who's boss. Later Mark threatens to throw his mom out of a window or something like that when she's stupid enough to correct him. Not surprisingly the family splits up.

Chapter 4

Matt cheats his way through college getting A's in classes he proudly says he never attended. He and the other wrestlers bully everybody at Lincoln Junior College, and break a bunch of shit. They tip over people's cars, and flood the dorms on purpose. We reach a new low, when he also makes light of the fact that one of his college buddies could not read or write. He then takes time to bash Frank Trigg, saying that he "never became anything."

Later it gets even more disturbing when he describes mutilating a live baby piglet by cutting off it's testicles, and throwing them at a friend. For good measure he slits it's stomach open as it screams wildly to "freak his friend out." After he and Mark brutally torture and kill a dozen or so baby pigs, solely for entertainment, they starts throwing their testicles and body parts at each other. Matt even now still seems amused because his friend looked like he was going to vomit.

A family member shoots himself over a girl, and Matt skips the funeral decided to go to a wrestling meet instead. After getting drunk one night they take a bunch of girls "swimming" in some sort of pond/rain water/sewer runoff. There is a whirlpool that's formed in the sewage pond, and Matt and 2 other drunk college kids get caught in the current. Matt pulls himself out but the 2 other kids drowned. He talks about how God saved him.(apparently God hated the other 2 drunk college kids) They feel so sorry for the 2 kids that died, that the same night the go out and get drunk again, and look for girls. They end up at a house party, and are having no luck with the girls, so they started eating food from the cabinets and refrigerator. When confronted by the home's owner, they throw him through a window, and leave before the cops get there. Matt then starts fighting MMA and kicking everyone's ass easily. Pat Miletich refs one of Matt's fights, and is so impressed he invites him to train with them.

On a side note, for a guy who's disgusted by the language Serra uses, I've counted 14 curse words to this point in the book.

I forgot in Chapter 4, him and Mark both make-out with the same 8th grade girl while they are in college. Why he would include that I have no idea. It had nothing to do with the story.

Chapter 5

Chapter 5 is mostly uneventful, just talks about his first fight in Japan, and so on. He does manage to say "I would have done anything for a country breakfast in Japan" which did nauseate me momentarily. The end of the chapter starts picking up momentum when at Mark's wedding, the boys snub their dad, not allowing him in the family photos. Later, after getting completely plastered they beat the shit out of their new in-laws at the wedding reception, and the entire event turns into what Matt calls "A Battle Royal."

Chapter 6

This chapter should have been titled "I am such a badass." Matt misses no opportunity to pat himself on the back for his fights. He talks about steamrolling everybody. Later Matt shows his utter lack of character when he divulges that he guilt-tripped a fellow mitetich guy into letting him win a grappling match at the Abu Dhabis so he could get the bonus money for fastest submission. The guy fakes like Matt submitted him, earning Matt $1,500 for fastest submission. The way Hughes rationalized it was "The winner faced Tito Ortiz, and we both knew I was the only one that would have a chance against him." He admits Tito beat him in the grappling match, but remembers being surprised at how much stronger he was than Tito. He basically says Tito got lucky in beating him. More later on.

Chapter 7

Matt talks about how he and Jens Pulver used to belittle new members at the Miletich gym. He talks about how they both made fun of and ignored a fat kid who was seemingly in awe of them. That fat kid was Tim Sylvia. He talks about how the UFC temporarily released him "by mistake." He finished the chapter by divulging that he likes to eat at Hooters, and he knocked up the gym skank, who he describes as having "nice boobs, even though they were fake" and "her hips were a little too wide for his taste." Apparently not to wide to impregnate.

Chapter 8

Matt starts this chapter by sexually assaulting the aforementioned 8th grader, who's now 21, in public at a grocery store. Or "Smacking her on the ass" as he called it. Matt notices that her body is "tighter" now that she's grown up, and not the same 13 year old he'd made out with in college. For some reason Matt immediately tells her that he knocked his girlfriend up, and seems utterly outraged that she has decided she's
keeping the baby.

After making it back to her parents house he again begins fondling her on the couch by reaching through a hole in her jeans. He goes on to describe how he noticed she didn't shave her legs that day. (At this point I started to wonder if I mistakenly was reading Penthouse Forum or something.)

The story line changes out of nowhere and Matt begins describing how an opponent who he was mauling once whispered to him to "take the arm," or in other words, I've had enough, please just arm-bar me, and leave me a little dignity. Matt decided he wanted to "take out some more aggression", and continued to beat the shit out of him for another round.

Also, at the end of the chapter the victim of his sexual assault, for some reason I can't begin to fathom, breaks up with him.

Chapter 9

This chapter tells a story about how Tim Sylvia approached Matt like a man, and asked Matt why he had a problem with him when no one else at Miletich does. Matt then goes on to describe the look on Tim's face when Tim who was hoping to bury the hatchet, gets told that he's lazy, not a team player, and Matt didn't like him. Matt takes joy in the fact that he knew exactly how he was treating Tim, and Tim was hoping he'd apologize or something.

Tim, obviously crushed says that Matt has always been one of his heroes, and he'd do anything to be his friend. Matt then tells him he's got enough friends, and that Tim can't buy acceptance by following his team mates around to UFCs when he's not invited.

This chapter is interrupted by a bunch of pictures of Matt being repulsive at different ages. There's a repulsive Matt baby picture, a repulsive Matt toddler picture, a repulsive Matt with a mullet high school picture, a repulsive Matt adult with family picture. The one that tops it all off is a picture of him writing this book on a, I shit you not, typewriter. It looks to be 60 or so years old. But hey, he is from the country I guess.

He then talks about Tito getting knocked out on the street, and what a dick Tito always was to him.

He ends the chapter in typical fashion talking about his sexual assault victim waiting for him to get home from Europe one night, sitting in a car outside his house. He takes that opportunity to let us all know he wouldn't see her that night because he was "too busy spending the night in someone else's bed."

Come to find out, the victim sitting in the car would later become his wife. I bet she loved the fact that he included that little tid bit in his book.

Chapter 10

Matt is up to more shenanigans as he starts dropping by his ex-victim's house, who wants nothing to do with him, when she's not there, and pretty much kidnapping her three year old son so he can spend time with him. She finds out about it and puts a stop to it, the way her parents should have put a stop to college age Matt and Mark making out with her when she was 13.

From here we go to a weird story about how Matt refused to walk all of the way to the bathroom in a bar at a casino in Las Vegas, and would just publicly urinate near the bar while pretending to be getting another drink because it was "dark enough in there to get away with it." I'm at a loss for why that was included in the book. At that same bar his brother Mark's wife refused to get on the bar and dance with some other skanks despite the fact that Mark had ordered her to. She left the bar upset.

He then talks about his ex-victim deciding to get breast implants in the plastic surgery mecca of the U.S., Cedar Rapids. She wanted to know if Matt would stay with her for a day after her surgery because she would be highly medicated. Matt agreed and took full advantage of a still very groggy patient and had sex with her THE DAY AFTER HER SURGERY, which unfortunately "tore some stitches." He also says that this was the first time he saw her completely naked because she always wore her shirt when they had sex before. I didn't know what to make of that either.

He finishes up by talking about how he destroyed Sherk for 5 rounds, and then says he encouraged Sylvia after he tested positive for steroids.

Chapter 11

This chapter was a whole lot of nothing. Matt beat the hell out of Trigg. Matt was beating BJ Penn but just got caught with a good right hand. Matt gets married and has a 24 hour honeymoon which includes dinner at Steak N Shake, and watching the boy he was kidnapping earlier, who is now his step-son swim at a cheap motel pool. That's right, they took the kid with them on their honeymoon. Nice little reminder that someone else has slept with your new bride if you ask me. Still no mention of Matt's other kid so far. You know, the one he wanted to have his ex abort. He also says that some guy started talking to him about becoming a
Christian.

Chapter 12

We now find Matt at an orphanage in Mexico helping out as a missionary. After some prodding, he becomes a Christian in Mexico, and returns home a few days later. He immediately starts lecturing his wife, who for some reason he now calls "Mom" even when they're alone, about her language and her spiritual life. She's not having it, and starts bringing up all of the girls he slept with in the past.(something he still seems to be just a little proud of) He beats Trigg???s ass again, and then his step son gets in trouble at school for kicking other kindergarteners, and Matt instructs him to use his shin next time instead of his toe.

Chapter 13

This guy is out of his mind.

For some reason he still calls his wife/victim "mom." Dana calls and wants him to coach tuf 2. Matt tells "mom" he's unsure about being away from her for 6 weeks, because he doesn't want to end up like Randy Couture, and leave his long time wife for someone he met while filming tuf. Where does this dude get off airing Randy's dirty laundry??? "Mom" then assures him that he's no Randy Couture. I would also like to take this time to personally reassure him that he is no Randy Couture. And who the hell worries about leaving their wife if they can't see them for 6 weeks. What the fuck?

He also takes time to tell us that everything about Randy "radiated decency....except for his actions." What the hell is going on here?

He also tells Dana that he WILL NOT CUSS on the show. He will apparently do it in his book though

He next proceeds to forget his 6 year old step son is with him at the tuf training facility, and drives away leaving him there for over an hour.
Later he can't believe a guy has the balls to ask for his autograph while he and "mom" are eating, and regrets to this day that he signed it.

He talks about filming the country breakfast commercial.

Later while training at MFS, some young fighter from TUF who is now training at Miletich has the nerve to come up and talk to him after practice like they're on the same level. Hughes is completely pissed that this nobody thinks he is worthy to talk to him, but because he's a Christian he's decides he must be nice to the kid.

Matt then does a complete 180 and says maybe he was a little judgemental of Randy. A little? Again, what the hell is wrong with this guy.
