I'm still just amazed that Matt withstood the effects of the head-butt and hung in there. What heart!

Like Ben said, I'm proud to be a fan, you represent the best of the sport, Matt.

son of a ***** boys and girls . Dont know bout any of you but when that head butt came in i went into cardiac arrest. I spent the third round standing on the front porch away from everyone , palms dripping , crossing and uncrossing my arms , hollering at the top of my lungs,.

At one point i hollered out to the driveway for some asshole to shut his harley off , but it was my heart beating out of my chest.

When Matts hand got raised the throng of folks in my living room blew the roof off the place , Hank woke up screaming actually , we scared him from a deep sleep lol.

Just goes to show how strong our fighter is . Most guys would have been out cold and given up . Not Matt, he dug down deep , pulled it together and controlled serra just as he said he would do for all 3 rounds. I actually thought we matt was gonna top the trigg 2 fight for a second after he regained his composer and then took serras back. Words cant explain the way i get when matt steps into the cage , from the goose bumps when Hank strums those first few unforgettable chords , to the thumping chest and sweaty palms to the pure excitement of a job well done for a buddy when his hand is raise. Kinda like having a wall hanger walk within bow range. Cant say good job enough buddy .


Matt , coming from a friend . Good Job Pal.

My first post after just finding this site 2 days ago...

CONGRATS to Matt Hughes! Way to be classy to Serra even when a lot of people wouldn't have been after all of his talking. This is why I'm a fan of Hughes, he's a classy dude and a legend in the sport!

That was a fun fight to watch.

Bonnie

What you saw in that first round is what makes Matt so special. You can't teach that. It's something you have or you don't. And Matt's got it!


THE HEART OF A CHAMPION!

matt looked HUGE!! That is the Matt I missed. i am confused though. The head butt didn't look like much. I don't know if it was the shot after the head butt but I hope Matt's chin is not failing him.
Mac,
I feel the exact same way you do when Matt comes out and the music starts to play. I thought I was going to have a heart attack. Just wish Hughes would have neaten on him.

I am glad it is over! I thought i was gonna get sick, i was so nervous! I said a few cuss words tonite folks.
I guarantee i will have lost my voice come morning. I just took some nightquil. My voice is all scratchy an hoarse.

And the rashad ko was the cherry on top for the night! Woo...(sorry rashad fans)

Mac, you said it best my friend!

I did not enjoy that fight at all, was so nervous and so worried in the First, again shows Matt's heart, unbelievable, to fight through it survive and then the second part of that round.

So relieved and whilst Serra fought well, he never attacked enough and Matt pretty much beat him standing, clinch, the ground, all over.

Could of been a sweet RNC and i think if Matt hadn't been rocked by that headbutt, he may of inflicted a lot more damage.

Great win!

That was such a fantastic experience. When Matt got caught with the head-butt/back of the head combo, I about puked all over the guys in front of me. After that I think I had God working overtime!!

The last 3 fights of the night couldn't have been any better for me!!!

I have one of the t shirts autographed by Matt. Today it will be placed in a jersey case next to a Sydney Crosby jersey. It will replace a baseball jersey; looks like my team is going to suck this year so why not go with a winner.:)

I was at the local bar for the fight and the crowd was pro Hughes. When he went down, I was like, "crap another Liddell moment." Hughes didn't deserve to go out that way getting caught with some total BS. Then Hughes survived. and took the fight to Serra. I saw the fight a little differently. I gave the first round to Hughes, the second to MH, and the third to Serra. Hughes got caught in the first and I am sure the judges didn't see the head butt, but Hughes recovered took Serra down and then took his back for a minute or so.

Most importantly, I think Hughes won the stand up game with that little 5'6" ball of dynamite(:rolleyes:). Serra seemed really unsure with his striking, nowing for sure that if he engaged he was going to get taken down ala the GSP fight. MH's striking looked sharp although I don't like that lunging jab he throws.

Whats next for Matt Hughes? I think he is going to take a fight against someone like Kos, Fitch, or even Marcus Davis. Then if Alves beats GSP, and Hughes defeats his next opponent he could be looking at a shot at the title. Just my take on it.

What great heart and win Matt!!!

It seemed closer when watching it live than after I watched it the second time. Other than getting hurt by the head butt, you basically dominated the fight.

The main thing that stands out is that when he hurt GSP, he finished him. He wasn't able to do that to you. That just shows how great of a fighter you are.

Nice...:D
