Matt Hamill definitely has an interesting story. However, there’s so much to it that we don’t know about him as UFC fans. This July the film should be completed and hopefully by the end of the Summer it will be fully released. But for now, we have a movie trailer to give us an idea of the cheese factor. I’m shocked, it actually looks really good… hold the cheese.

Matt Hamill responded to today’s UFC 78 announcement that Michael Bisping would fight Rashad Evans for the UFC 78 Main Event. Here’s what he said about the UFC 78 announcement on his website:
Wow! Let me just say… I am in shock. First, I get hosed by two judges in London and now the much anticipated rematch has evaporated in front of my eyes. I’m starting to feel like the deck is stacked against me. Duff, my trainer/manager told me he thought something like this would happen when he read Bisping’s statement on the internet. He said it looked like Bisping was looking for a way out of the rematch. I posted a statement about my knee surgery on 9/25 so everyone would know it was minor, and I would be ready by mid December. I didn’t think six weeks was that long of a wait, apparently, Bisping and the UFC did. I am so hungry to fight. I had surgery to add wrestling back to my arsenal. I fought Bisping’s fight at UFC 75 and I was looking forward to fighting my fight in the rematch. I feel honored that so many people have told me I won the fight in London. It makes the decision easier for me to accept. I want to fight… I want to fight ASAP! Hopefully the UFC will schedule a fight for me soon. I would like to fight in December or January and hopefully Bisping after that… If Bisping has the guts to do it again.”
According to UK’s the Sun, Michael Bisping wants a rematch of his UFC 75 fight against Matt Hamill.

But I’ve called the UFC and asked for a rematch because I feel I could do a lot better.” Bisping continues, “I want a rematch as soon as possible – I don’t want to waste too much of my career on Matt Hamill.”
Bisping admitted that he was surprised by Hamill’s improved stand up, but feels that he won the fight fair and square. “…it’s not like I went out there and got knocked out in 30 seconds. I think people need to realize that”.

“Official Statement from Matt Hamill
I would like to thank everyone for their unbelievable support. I fought my heart out in London and feel I should have won the fight. The outpouring of support from people all over the world has touched my heart. It validates my performance to myself and that means as much as a win to me. I think MMA is a great sport and I don’t believe in any kind of a fix. The two judges that scored the win for Bisping obviously need to re-evaluate the way they score a fight. You can’t win a fight when you run for three rounds. They need to study the criteria for scoring an MMA fight: effective striking, grappling, takedowns, aggression and control. Bisping did none of that in my opinion. The UFC has the best MMA in the world and I am proud to be a part of it. I will be fighting in the UFC for a long time. Thanks again to all my fans, especially to all the English fans who came up to me after the fight to tell me I was the winner. I will be back in the octagon very soon and promise to fight my heart out like I always have.

Matt Hamill has really improved on his standup since his appearance on The Ultimate Fighter reality show. Hamill did an amazing job standing up with Bisping, and actually dominated most of the 1st round of the fight. Bisping did a great job avoiding any serious damage from Hamill on the ground. I was very surprised to see Hamill’s lack of submission attempts. The overall fight was exciting…
