I am still improving and getting better with more training and to become a well-rounded fighter. I am looking forward to more fights in the near future. PS I want to thank you all for the emails. I have thousands and its hard to respond to all of them but I do try to read them when I have free time and it lifts my spirit. So thank you.”
I have to be honest about this one. Matt Hamill is one of the most humble guys in the sport. I like the guy and hope that he goes far. He's an inspiration and that, no one can take away from him. Win or lose he came out looking like the better fighter in the Bisping fight and I think he has gained many fans because of his attitude after the fact.
Now I don't think hes a great fighter, but I think it takes class to come out and say what he said and not bitch about the decision, alot more class than Bisping had and he won the fight. I respect Hamill alot more after this fight than I did before, and hope he keeps training and gets better.
Agree! Matt Hamill is one of the most humble guys I have ever seen in the octagon! Even though he got ass-raped by the judges (and he knew it), he was very professional after the fight, most guys would have went crazy! He just looked sad, thats another reason I feel so bad for him, he was very gracious in an ass-rappin decision.
