With Serra, I gave him his respect when he beat GSP, but like a week after that he had something like 5 interviews out, and in every one he was saying something like "Hughes is a dick, Hughes is an asshole, hughes is a jerk off", and I lost all reespect for him after that because that's not how a champ acts. If he's gonna say "I think hughes has a weak stand up games and has no chance against me" then at LEAST it'd be on a professional basis. But he went around calling him obscene childish names on national TV, and In a couple interviews even made fun of him for working on a farm. Ignorant namecalling and ripping on a persons lifestyle isn't what I expect from a champion.
I figured We'd get the same thing on TUF 6, but I NEVER thought on Every friggen episode we'd hear "hughes is a dick" "What a dick" and of course "IT LOOKS LIKE YOUR TAKING A TINKLE, A**HOLE!". ANd ripping on him with the Matt hughes impression in front of his team is just childish. I think he's a better coach than hughes, and Hughes might not be known as the nicest guy, but he carrys hiumself as a champion, and if he's gonna talk bad about someone, it's about their style in regards to a fight, not "gradeschool name-calling." IT's like serra has some wierd obsession with hughes, kinda creepy.
Anyways, that's why I would giggle like a school girl if we see Tommy and Mac in the finals, and then see Hughes destroy serra at UFC 79. And I Think both are possibilities, especially after seeing George tonight, I think TOmmy could take him. (Anyone hear how hard George was breathing in that fight tonight?"
Plus, I think hughes is too strong for serra and will win by one of many ways.
So yeah, and I join your guys' "I hate Matt Serra" club too?
