After each of the fights, everyone was talking so loud you really couldn't hear the post-fight interviews--they talked through Kos, but there was almost total silence so that everyone could listen to Matt. Tons of respect there.
Everyone's right--Matt looked awesome for 4 1/2 minutes of that round--I was SO pumped up seeing that stand up! My heart broke at the end of the round.
If Matt fights til he's 70, I'll watch and cheer for every darn one of those fights. If he stays "on the shelf", I'll watch his videos over and over, knowing a greater champion never walked into the octagon.
I watched from a bar in Savannah GA and it was the same way. There were about 200 people there having a very good time.
Every one was pulling for Matt after the fight was over it was silent. Everyone listened to what matt had to say and you only hear quite chatter, "Matt the best ww ever" "GOAT" "class act" it was cool to see that many people with nothing but respect for him. As always it feels good to be a Hughes fan.
