UFC 121: Anyone Else Going to See Matt Hamill?

I haven't seen deaf MMA artist Matt Hamill fight yet so I am excited to see him tonight in UFC 121. Matt is going up against Tito Ortiz, who has caught some (well-deserved, in my opinion) flack over the past few days after his remarks about Matt: "He's been babied his whole life coming from being deaf of course and he's going to be babied after when I knock him out. [...] I've noticed he's deaf, so he has a soft head, you hit him with more and more shots."

Today I read Matt's response to Tito's ignorant comments, which were a lot nicer than if it had been me: "He likes to talk trash, it’s just what he does."

Good luck, Matt!

  2. Isn't he the one with cochlear implant? I'm wondering he have to wear a headgear because of it? If so, I'm wondering that's where soft head trash talk idea came from.
