#0038 - Matt Hughes - A Fighting Life

If you are on the UFC FIGHT PASS you need to check out the mini-documentary about Matt Hughes in the “25 Years In Short” series. The story describes the UFC Hall of Famer comeback from a nearly fatal accident in 2017. Certainly is worth a watch.

I have wanted to have Matt on the podcast and on the fishing show for a long time. His first fight in the UFC was in 1999, and he is my favorite fighter of all time. Matt defended his title 9 times.

I met Matt for the first time in 2010 and we have kept up some after that. Later I found a post on Instagram about him in a hospital and found that he was struck by a train. I commented after seeing him walk into the UFC with him all healed, that we should go on a fishing trip. After that we got him down to Hawks Cay and then had him sit down on the podcast. He was a huge inspiration to me before his accident, after the accident he is even more inspiring to me. He has recovered in a way that is really incredible.

I don’t know anybody who could survive a train accident other than someone like Matt Hughes. He has a wonderful sense of humor and a great attitude. I hope you enjoy this podcast as much as I do.
