Default Monte Cox talks rather ill of Matt

http://www.blogtalkradio.com/cage_ju...ith-bob-carson

In this, the last Carson's Corner of 2012, Bob hosts MMA's first "supermanager" Monte Cox to discuss everything from the Travis Fulton vs. Jeremy Bullock slam at Extreme Challenge to Tim Sylvia vs. Ray Mercer and his own statements that Matt Hughes is "not a compassionate person" based on their time spent living and working together.

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. Make sure that you start the new year off the right way by clicking the link to check out the latest CARSON'S CORNER!

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.

In Denver they were catching up and telling old stories. I got the sense that they were great pals and it would be impossible for an MMA article or our own insight to make any comment on the relationship of these guys.

Thanks Matt for Chiming in. I figured since he was talking about when you were living there that was B.C. Plus the idea of compassion is a tough thing to put in a box. People say I have no compassion either but most of them never got to know me.
