  • Not important says:

    actually Matt is not that good at all. There is a purple belt in town that he used to let train and help him with his school, but once he started tapping out Matt, well, Matt kicked him out of his school. Does Matt win when he competes? I’ll answer that, Nope!

  • Hates catty people says:

    “Not Important” is catty. Who cares if he tapped to Matt? Who cares if he doesn’t win all his matches? Is he a good teacher? Does he dedicate himself to his students? That’s all that matters.

    Look at Rampage Jackson. He’s a phenomenal and decorated fighter, but can’t coach/teach for crap.

    Stop the cattiness.

Be nice. Keep it clean. Stay on topic. No spam.
