4.0 out of 5 stars A TRUE MMA LEGEND, 11 Feb 2010
This review is from: Made in America (Ultimate Fighting Championship) (Mass Market Paperback)
It would see that most reviewers of Made in America are not too found of Matt Hughes and the way he comes across, Which is a bit unfair as all he is being is honest, which is rare enough these days and if you are only reading a book to like someone then you would be better off with a fiction novel or something! One thing that everyone will have to do is respect Matt Hughes as he's been one of the top fighters in the world of mma for a long time and dominated the welterweight division for a long period.

The book starts off covering Hughes childhood and what its like growing up on a farm and the struggles that brings. He tells us what it was like to grow up with his dad who was very hard to please and had no respect for their mother. One of the interesting things throughout the book is Hughes relationship with his twin brother Mark and how they both joined the wrestling team. In fact wrestling was the only reason Hughes went and stayed in college, it turned out too be the right decision!

Of course Hughes big break came when he teamed up with UFC legend Pat Miletich and the book covers how Miletich helped guide his career in the right direction. His big fueds are covered in detail especially his two fights with Frank Trigg of which the second fight is UFC president Dana White's favourite fight. He's also honest enough too admit that in his first fight with BJ Penn that he underestimated him and that before the second fight he was even scared!

As the book progress Hughes finds God and tries to become a better person for himself and wife. But the one thing that remains is that Hughes is still the same farm country boy today that he was when he was growing up and has not been affected by fame.
