was that the one when fitches face was all horrible after The only fight of GSPs which instantly stands to mind that doesnt involve either BJ Penn or Matt Hughes...is his fight against Thiago Alves...and thats only coz of that horribilis bit of footage from afterwards...where Thiago Alves is crying as he goes to his locker room because he has lost...and my first thought to that was, well thats karma for not being able to make weight for Matt Hughes at UFC85 and forcing a catchweight bout on the day of the weigh-ins because of a supposedly bum ankle thats able to support flying knees...and then I thought that was a bit unkind...coz he was actually in tears...

I watch thousands of fights...there has to be a reason for me to remember them, or else i'd need to be reminded

Yep...

We "arm chair" coaches and fighters can make all the claims in the world...

But when you have a 9 time champ..(should be 11 IMO) HOFer...... telling you like he sees it... I find it hard to go against that view...


"Fitch this.. Penn that..."...whatever.... "Matt Hughes says..." and you should give the man a listen.. not many fighters will give you their opinions on a fight that wasn't theirs.

Haha nice train of thought Dave

And yes that's the fight fitch looks like he got hit be a truck afterwards. Must admit I'm the same I have hardrives full of fights but only remember vividly the one that involve 'my' fighters or that's are just jaw dropping.

no one is going to call you a suck up but i dont see where the harm is in disagreeing with him.

he has a huge advantage over virtually everyone here when it comes to judging a fight and i had fun talking to him about it...infact it was a real honor to be able to do so...but to change the way you see the fight just because Matt see's it different then you "IS" sucking up..in my opinion that is.

now having said all of that i read his blog on the fight and i dont remember it the way he describes it so i may very well be wrong about the second round.

but i only saw it once and haven't had the opportunity to watch it again.

Sure.. to change your [anyone.. not just you] opinion just to agree with Matt is sucking up.. But let's just say I had watched the fight... 50 times... and didn't agree with Matt... and Matt says.."x"... you know.. with his experience.. both in and out of the cage.. in MMA and wrestling.. .. you just have to lean in that direction.. who knows better.. a person that does it.. or a person that just watches....

Kinda like watching porn.. and then going off to teach a sex ed class...
