He looks like a cool guy and hasn't got any thing bad to say about Bisping.
Anyway heres the interview


Fightline.com: Can you explain to people that don't know, a little bit about being a deaf fighter?

Hamill: I have been deaf since birth so I don't know any different, if I could hear or not. I think being deaf does allow me to concentrate on my matches and fights. In the ring all I see is the person in front of me. No other distractions whatsoever get in the way.

Yeah, I always liked Hamill. I prefer his "its an honor to fight the guy" attitude to that whole "im going to eat his children" personality.

Theres a line between being confident and being arrogant.

I'm really impressed at how he handled his loss to Bisping.

how can you hate this guy, hes overcoming a huge disadvantage, beats bisping and takes it so well, ive heard people say F matt hamill only reason people like him is cus hes deaf and i get sick to my stomach, like really? you would find any reason to hate a fighter, gay, fighting style, deaf, personality, etc

matt hamill is that much greater cus he cant take advice while fighting and has lots of potential and personally i hope he proves alot of people wrong and beats down a guy better than bisbing in bonnar

I've said it before and I'll say it again.

Hamill can win 2 of 3 rounds from Bonnar.

So I'm picking Bonnar by Unanimous Decision.

man you should be an announcer because what you just said makes no sense at all. Can we put this one as one of the worst logical reasons for a victory. His Avatar sums it all up, you have been drinking between fights again.
