Matt Hughes is set to publish his biography this January. The book will be titled, "Made in America: The Most Dominant Champion in UFC History," and will be published by Simon Spotlight Entertainment in the USA and by Pocket Books in the UK. Check out the publishers description of the book below:

“If you know anything at all about mixed martial arts and the UFC, then you know the name Matt Hughes. With devastating slams and ground and pound - and nine championship belts to his credit - Matt is the most dominant fighter in UFC history.

While I'm not a Matt Huges fan (see: cockiness), I'll most likely be picking up this book after Christmas. While I am completey immersed in MMA, I haven't really read too much behind the scenes stuff. And this is our first really great opportunity. Honestly, I couldn't think of a better person to be the trailblazer for this part of MMA.

I managed to get a leaked version of the book via torrents. I shall now post it, in its entirety, for all to read.

Chapter 1
My name is Matt Hughes. I was born on October 13th, 1973 in Hillsboro, Illinois. I knew I was destined to become the greatest UFC fighter of all time because when my mother gave birth to me, I came out of her womb wearing a karate GI and a black belt. I have been training BJJ since the time I was a tiny little spermling. I used to make all the other sperm tap out with my superior submission skills. When it was time to race all the other sperm to the egg, I ground-and-pounded my way in.

Chapter 2
Life on the farm was difficult for a UFC-fighter-to-be such as myself. There was no competition around to test out my steadily increasing skills on. I resorted to trying out my new submissions on the cows we had. My father used to send me out to the pasture with an axe and he would tell me to bring back the fattest cow so we would have dinner for the month. I always chucked the axe and slapped a guillotine on the black-and-white bastards. You ever make a cow tap out? I have.

Chapter 3
I have converted to Christianity, and I will not rest until everyone on my TUF team converts to Christianity as well. It is my duty as a coach to show them the path of righteousness, the path of our Lord and Saviour - Jesus Christ. Matt Serra is not a Christian, and that is why I hate him. Sometimes I have dreams that I am in the 16th century, and Matt Serra is a devil-worshipping heathen. I come upon him in a forest clearing while he is practicing his Satanic rituals, and I say unto him "Matt Serra, your heathen ways have come to an end!" before decapitating his head and piking it for all other Satanic heathens to see. I usually wake up from this dream covered in my own sweat and bodily fluids.

THE END

This has got to be fighter bashing.

Which button gives negative props?

wonder if this will help, or hinder his career...I know TUF has ensured that he's lost a large number of fans
