UFC 117 was the best live card I have ever been too. When matt came out, again I stopped breathing except when I was screaming. I did pray the whole fight. I had a good feeling about this whole fight even before I got there. I don;t always take my “good feelings” as matt will win, but will be safe which is what I really pray for. When matt stepped into that octagon it was like he had already won. He just looked that good and it just felt that right. When matt caught him with that upper cut I blew my voice out. (really right now I have no voice .. so txt me if you need to talk haha) Then when he finished him with that choke …. I peed a little and spilled my beer .. just like UFC 52, but this time I wasn't watching a stranger.
I did too, Boomer. Normally, the closer it gets to the date of Matt's fights, I start to feel that anxious excitement inside. It's not that I don't have complete faith in Matt and his abilities, it's more about that "anything can happen in a fight" that Matt himself has mentioned a time or two. But this time, I just felt more peaceful. I too prayed for his safety in the cage and his safe return to his family.

If any man on this planet is living proof this scripture is true its matt hughes. I really believe that God;s favor is on matt because of the humility that is in his heart. With everything he could be doing or the man he could be with this fame, he remains so humble, genuine and true to his family and friends. I couldn't count the times that he was looking at pictures of his kids on his cell phone .. or he would get off the phone with Audra and say to me,
“Boomtown have I told you what I good one I have waiting at home?”
Me too. I think it's that "special" something I've sensed about Matt since the first time I ever saw him fight. I think that's why so many people are drawn to him...not the fighter, but the man.
