MATT HUGHES COMPLETELY UNAPOLOGETIC ABOUT TUF 6 AND THINKS SERRA IS THE GUY WHO LOOKED LIKE THE HEEL
I went at Hughes pretty strongly. I repeatedly ask him how he felt about coming off as a jerk on TUF6. He apologizes for nothing. The guy is consistent.
“To be real honest, if people don’t like me that’s fine. I can live with that.”
“They’re on the show for a reason,” said Hughes.”They’re on because they don’t know what it takes to be a champion. Do a lot of people like the hard work ethic? No. It’s human nature to take the easy way out. Even I know that. I’m a nine-time world champion and I still need coaches pushing me.”
He also said his opinion of Matt Serra is worse after watching the show.
“I definitely know who he is now. I didn’t know he was such a bad guy,” said Hughes. “Is he somebody that you’re going to let your? I just think he’s a bad role model. I want my kids to look at me. Do what I do, say what I say. I don’t think Matt Serra can do that with his kids.”
I couldn’t tell if Hughes was blowing smoke about Serra and his injury. Hughes said flippantly that Serra may be out for a long time because of the severity of the injury. Is that the reason they came up with the “interim” title deal?
I give Hughes a lot of credit. He easily could’ve snapped on me but he handled criticism professionally.
