Matt Major was a dude who was fighting in Bellator at one point, then he wasn’t, then he was homeless and found himself at his lowest point. This was a guy that was featured on the TapouT show for his zany antics and who was touted as a serious up-and-comer, then all of a sudden he was homeless and needed to make a comeback. Kind of weird and shitty, which sums up how the fight game can be cruel.
Matt Major’s comeback happened in September and, well, it didn’t quite go as planned. He had done everything by the books this time, he had done his best training, he did the sob story interviews about his time in prison, his subsequent release and then life on the streets trying to make a comeback, but he still lost. What was interesting was that wasn’t the Matt Major that the world knew. Maybe it didn’t work out because he didn’t get to be as “crazy” as he was in the past.
This interview has been gaining some traction of late (who knows why) and is from last year. This is the kind of stuff that Matt Major did to get attention early on. It’s also pretty wacky. We aren’t sure if this is the greatest MMA interview ever or the worst, but it’s definitely on the spectrum. You take care of yourself. Hang in there.
