Because I think he is the shizzzzzzzz.....(dramatic pause)....nnit!
I beat he'd destroy all in his weight class. Remember that you're not only fighting him BUT you're fighting against the ghost of Farmer Burns also!

Actually I'm friends with one person who has trained with Matt, and I've got to talk to Matt at least once. While Matt is a good coach and generally nice guy I don't think he has the proper mentality to step into the cage although I think he would win against some of the the lower mid card guys.

He's 5'7" and weights 235, completely natural. Guy would probably have to decide on a weight he'd best be able to use his catch skills at and then bring that to bear against the typical BJJ weaknesses, as he is purported to be able to do well.
You're probably right about the mentality thing though, you look and read and listen and you just don't see "killer instinct" in him like you do in a Tito Ortiz or Chuck Liddell.
You could always try telling him that his opponent said, "Karl Gotch sucks!" or "Farmer Burns is dead, get over it!" to piss him off.

Farmer Burns may be dead to you and me, but he's alive and kicking during Matt's power walks. Ain't you ever read that article in Grappling. Come on man it's 2003, get with the program. Matt talks daily to Farmer Burns and the man that lives in his eyebrow.

I didn't realise he was that heavy.

Against any of the heavyweights? Put Furey up against someone like Couture, Mir or any of the up-and-coming Russians and he'd get killed. He might do all right in KOTC or Gladiator Challenge, but I'd have to see it to believe it.

I dont think that he would do so badly. I mean there are folks with crazy skills that dont have a lot of desire to do that. Or maybe not the mindset. I mean guys like Kurt Osiander or Cameron Earle are straight animals on the mat, but I dont think they have the desire.
