(It may direct you to 96 weigh-ins, but 2 videos under that is Matt's Q&A)

I'm not sure if this has been posted yet,
But its a great vid, Matt talks with Goldy about:

UFC 98 vs Serra
The midwest
Wrestling in MMA
BJJ in MMA
Matt's early career, first professional loss, Dennis Hallman, losing two in a row
Becoming world champ
Trigg
Matts sense of humor
Off season, frequency of fights and diet
A little bit of HIT Squad
Mental mentality and nerves

Straight from the horses mouth: Matt is 5' 8". But his height is stated as 5' 9" on the UFC website.

haha I liked Matt joking about just talking to Serra and being buddies with him for a minute.

I like that he didn't want to fight in Canada either, Matt seems so genuine when he talks,
I've never gotten a phony vibe from him.

haha

Yeah, that's one of the biggest things that struck me...every other Q & A I've seen, the fighters look and sound like they're thinking too hard and trying to formulate the "right" answers. With Matt, it just seems like you're hanging out chit chatting...maybe having a beer...around a campfire...:laugh:

I'm glad that Matt's not fighting in Canada because I wouldn't have been able to see it when he came up here.

Trigg and Huges = the Wily Coyote and Roadrunner of MMA...no matter what the coyote tries, he ends up getting blown up (or in this case choked out)

Go to youtube and the UFC page. I think it's the blog that covers the weigh ins.

there are many way that hughes can win this fight but i think that if he gets serra in the same position he had bj in where he traps the arm then this may be one of his easiest wins ever.

This made my week, Trigg has forums on his Tagg Radio website and they made a thread about Matt cracking jokes to the guy with the Frank Trigg shirt on.

http://www.taggradio.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=4190

"Man if Trigg was there he would have **** a brick and shut up really quick."

:laugh:

As soon as I read that I thought why? So Frank could get choked out again?
