Matt Hamill Puts The "Ability" In "Disability"
A warning should come for all those who choose to travel with Matt Hamill: If you have a plane to catch or a meeting to make, it might be wise to say your goodbyes and move along without him. Otherwise, you’re going to miss your flight or be woefully late for the meeting. The Ultimate Fighting Championship light heavyweight contender is such a friendly, decent and caring man that he can’t pass up an opportunity to chat up anyone who sidles up and says hello. Hamill, who on Saturday will fight unbeaten Mark Munoz in one of the televised bouts on the pay-per-view card of UFC 96 in Columbus, Ohio, has performed so many selfless acts over the last five years that the stories of them floating around on Internet bulletin boards are enough to fill a volume the size of “War and Peace.”
