| | Iowa News: Josh Neer & Matt Hughes
Yea, that’s right, I’m too lazy to make two threads
Josh Neer on Nick Diaz
There’s been a lot of talk on and off about Nick Diaz’s attitude and trash talking. I thought you might be interested in what Josh Neer had to say after their recent fight. Below is Josh’s answer to, “What did Nick Diaz say to you after the fight.”
“He told me after the fight he was sorry for talking shit, and I was a tough SOB. At the beginning of the third round he said you’re a tough mofo, or something like that, when we went to touch gloves. I’m not big on touching gloves but I think when you beat each other up for a couple of rounds….you should then show respect and touch gloves. Nick was a tough fighter; there are no hard feelings for him talking shit before or during the fight. He was just being himself, and I respect that. He was very respectful after the fight.”
Matt Hughes Interview with 60 Minutes
I hadn’t noticed this information on our forum, so thought you would be interested. This past Thursday and Friday 60 minutes came to Iowa to film Matt’s training and then went to his home in Hillsboro to film his family life on the farm. Apparently, the interview went well and the reporter, Scott Pelley, seemed genuine in his interest, and not out to bash Matt.
The interview is supposed to air in November.
IMO, Matt is a good choice to represent the UFC/MMA to the mainstream, but I’m pretty distrustful of the media. I hope they treat this subject fairly, but I’m not confident.
