Did Hughes accurately represent himself in his occasionally disturbing biography? What did promoter Monte think when it appeared Fulton had nearly KILLED Bullock with a slam? What about Adrenaline MMA, criticism from Zach Arnold's "Fight Opinion" site and Mercer's KO of Sylvia? Was Tim really turned down as an opponent by Fedor's management when they were negotiating with the UFC as Dave Meltzer stated? And who did he pick to win Overeem vs. Lesnar at UFC 141, anyway?
Monte Cox goes head-to-head with Carson once again in another information-heavy interview, but that's not all - Bob also found time before 2011 ended to discuss the fight career of Strikeforce's Joe Ray with the man himself, breaking down his recent setbacks, successful reboot fight and plans for the near future.

The discussion about Matt is at the end, like the 113:00 mark.
All Monte said was that Matt had two strikes against him when it comes to compassion, he is a wrestler and he is a farmer. He said that most wrestlers are mean when compared to other athletes. He also sees farmers as mean or ornery. He stated that Matt does some great things for people, but also he will voice his opinion or ignore you if he doesn't like you. The lack of compassion was referring to the farming and wrestling lifestyles. He has no ill feelings towards Matt and they are still friends.
