You will start seeing this more and more as May 23rd gets closer. Any good publicist or PR person or news agency is going to monopolize on Matt's upcoming fight. The promotion that the UFC will do will put him back in main stream and all the little news orgs will ride the wave. Creating drama between fighters is the number one way to get noticed.

Normally we would have to watch out for die hard Silva fans to troll here wanting to reclaim his honor … only … they really wouldn’t have a leg to stand on. His title fight speaks for itself.

Plus Matt is speaking to his fans. Its not like he went on camera to bash another fighter. It was his opinion and in this case just so happens to be the truth.. Boomer is right as the fight approaches more and more of this stuff will be going down.

Does not surprise me one bit! I thought to myself when I was reading Matt's blog that some reporter would pick this comment out and run with it! I'm surprised there has not been more......yet!

I'm waiting for the headline "Hughes Calls Anderson Out"!

It was a boring fight so Matt's statement was accurate! But some out there will twist it into something else.

This happened with the GSP vs Fitch fight too. We'll have to be on our toes on here as I'm sure we'll get some trolls and Serra huggers. We didn't really see it with Alves that i know of. Then again our Mods do a good job of catchign a lot of that crap before it gets a chance to spawn.

Nothing new here, people are always looking for a reason to hate on Matt.

I think Matt articulated his point well about the Silva fight. Leites was just dropping to the floor expecting Silva to take the bait, and Silva could have been more aggressive. I personally put more of the blame on Leties, but the fight WAS boring, that's how it goes sometimes.

I don't think we have to worry about May 23rd being boring.
