I'm a little disappointed by this interview. Hughes came across very condescending to me in this interview and seemed to hold himself on a pedestal. Comments like, "He was an easy guy to train for", "I don't know if you know this but I don't live and breathe the UFC, I probably couldn't even name you 5 people," "My friend read it and said it was all about how great Randy was, I know how great Randy is, I don't need to read a book telling me how great Randy is." He couldn't even give props to GSP. I mean, GSP only beat him twice. I might be listening incorrectly but this just seemed really condescending. I would like to see what others think about this and I appreciate all feedback regarding the way I interpreted it.

well it's natural to assume he's going to be rude about matt serra, he was definitely condescending in that part, but that's to be expected because of the feud. His comments about Thiago though don't seem to be as much condescending saying "I don't think he's top 5" as much as "I really have no clue because I don't pay attention to the UFC". Same as the Randy comments, I think he's basically just saying he really doesn't read and he's not interested in reading randy's book if it's about things he already knows.
I usually see him as pretty condescending but he doesn't seem to be particularly disrespectful to anyone except Serra. He just seems to be distancing himself from the sport. I don't think it's a bad attitude it's just him genuinely not knowing or caring about things that are going on in the MMA scene.
