As this decade comes to a close we wanted to take a look back at one of MMA’s great figures of the past ten years, former UFC welterweight champion, Matt Hughes.
This documentary takes a look at the life of Matt and his twin brother Mark, two farm boys, who grew up in Hillsboro, Illinois, and whose childhood stories often sound like something out of the Dukes of Hazzard.
We get to see where the seeds of Matt’s MMA career were planted as his high school and college wrestling coaches are interviewed as well as the person who helped get him his first ever MMA fight. Matt made $100 for his first fight, and that’s when he met Pat Miletich, who was the referee.
