He was brave and bold and showed up efforts from likes of Sam ***ton IMO. I've been a fan of Matt for a long time, I dunno always found his mauling style funny and interesting.
The way he showed no respect to anyone and loved a ruck. I think he's shown what hard work can do. The true definition of ''giving it a go''.
I hope he has a happy retirement if he is to do so. I will never forget the night he thought Williams and blood spurted out of his head and he gave the Bedford Bear Roar. Legend
May not be the best fighter of all time but he gave us some good honest fights and his world title effort against Chagaev was valliant as well.
Great post Skills. I've always been a fan since his K1 days. Always the warrior, always up for it despite the odds usually being stacked against him, what more do we want from a fighter!
Wish him every success for the future.
