    Wow, he can shoot those?

    • Koshchek Always Fights Fair says:

      It’s a shame that shooting an animal standing at a distance minding it’s own business can be considered sport. Small penis syndrome at it’s best.

      • ASDF says:

        Agreed. You’d think that ego of man superiority over animals, would have some limit. I.e. I don’t care for chickens, but a beast as beautiful, and rare as that, say at least, “maybe no?”. Instead, he, and the rest of these guys group all animals as easily killable. Sad. Karma’s a bitch is what I say.

    This should send Hardy over the edge….=D

    When’s the BBQ?

    fuking sick inbread yank hughes you prick! i hope you die painfully!!!

  5. Dick Diaz says:

    nothing like white people going into foreign land and doing whatever they please to the people and it’s environment…

  6. Fractal says:

    What a toss. Kills an innocent animal to stroke his ego.

  7. Filthy Rotten Rousey says:

    This guy is a trash bag stain on earths surface

  8. Aaron says:

    HAHA! Way to go Matt. You already know I want some damn zebra jerky.

  9. Aaron says:

    You mother fuckers you better all be god damn vegetarians or this might be the most hypocritical thing I’ve ever seen. What’s the difference between Matt doing it and the fat guy at the slaughterhouse? At least these animals had a chance to live out in the wild freely.
    Anyways, you already know I want some fuckin’ zebra jerky Matt. Hook it up!

  10. come on says:

    what the fuck matt hughes that is sickening

    • GW says:

      You seem very misinformed. Game taken in Africa, legally by the way, is used completely. The meat is given to local villages or the villages of the local trackers on the hunt. Obviously, Matt will have the trophies shipped home. These herds of animals are managed by the specific country’s wildlife department. Additionally, guided hunting for big game brings a lot of money and jobs into Africa.

      You should probably do some research before you show your stupidity. Furthermore, do you really think it’s smart to wish death on someone?

      • Mike says:

        Yeah Africa seems to be thriving from this type of hunting! U see the morality in one of the most corrupt countries in the world, why?

        Oh and why is it obvious he would ship the carcasses back to the US where u can’t even bring a vanilla stick back, let alone a Milleria ridden zebra!

      • stevo the great says:

        Dude STFU! You must be misinformed….Matt Hughes has aa how on Television where he hunts animals for game….get that? Game. If you don’t believe me google it……and I don’t give a fuck about Matt Hughes if he can do this to innocent animals. It ain’t right. Period…and you and your witty little comment can F#%K OFF how bout them apples… probably are a hunter yourself… bout trying to take an animal down on your own without the assistance of a gun, that is the way nature meant it to be. If you can’t kill it with your bare hands… shouldn’t be killed cowards.

      • Dick Diaz says:

        cite your sources?!?!

        • GW says:

          Thank you for asking about sources. Here is an excellent article regarding the sustainability of hunting tourism, with well-cited sources.


  12. James Hall says:

    Sick that this is still allowed :-(

  13. James Hall says:

    Sick that this is still allowed.

  14. One Eyed Willy says:

    Why would you shoot a zebra that’s like shooting a horse

  15. daddy tripp says:

    U guys are retarded its a hunting safari which means its legal. Its too bad hunting degenerates isn’t legal cuz this site would be better without all off you. Nice kill matt!!! We get some big game in CANADA but not that big lol props to all the hunters out there. Believe in the food chain baby it makes the world go round lol and for the record to all u animal activist’s out there go do some research and u will see hunters financially help wild life more then anyone including WWF and the Peta panda people. So before u criticise go educate your selves

    • Anderson Silva is G.O.A.T. says:

      maybe in america and canada you dumb piece of shit. you show me the evidence that the money in Africa actually goes back into the environment. I’m pretty sure the only reason hunting is legal over there is because no one goes to Africa for vacation and they need something to attract people there. Maybe if you were a little more educated you would know that a lot of animals in Africa are actually dying out because the water level is decreasing year after year. You would know that if you were so stupid. the animal population is decreasing. Just take a look at the lion, they are almost extinct but because of dumbasses like you aren’t educated and think that just because it is legal that it is ok, leisure hunting continues.

      • you are a moron says:

        This has to be the dumbest comment ever. You really need to google some real facts on Africa because you know nothing about it. And I’m from South Africa so I know what I’m talking about.

        PS kinda a lot of people visit africa for vacation u retard.

  16. JohnQ says:

    Too bad animals can’t you!!

  17. meh says:

    I don’t really agree with hunting these days when you can look through an accurate scope on a powerful accurate rife like 1000m away and kill a animal thats chilling eating some grass with no idea what’s going on like a little pussy …….Seems kinda easy and lame to me with no achievement in it I mean Hughes is standing next to them so proud of his kill …..If he did it with a bow or a spear or some shit that would be cool though

  18. Bob'O says:

    It’s not a Zebra you stupid uneducated morons. Now go stuff a bubba or in & out burger down your pie-holes you fucking hypocrites. ~Bob’O

  19. jason says:

    eww…how is this even legal?
    save an animal, kill a hunter.

  20. jeffy dahmer says:

    bunch of fucking dickheads on here repeating the same shit over and over?? Get a job you fucking bums!!



  22. itsallnonsense says:

    What does this have to do with MMA?

  23. Anderson Silva is G.O.A.T. says:

    Ok you morons. Enough with this “hypocrite” comments. Killing an animal for fun and leisure is not the same as eating a hamburger. I eat meat all the time. Just because I’m against hunting does not mean I’m a vegetarian… If you hunt for “fun” then you are just killing for no reason. How would you like it if you were in the wild minding your business providing for your children and then you get shot because someone wanted to have “fun.” Fucking ignorant idiots. That could be food for lions and their cubs. So just because you wanted to have “fun” you’ve affected many animals.

  24. Ryan Prieur says:

    I love how he’s not even fighting yet still gets all these comments on an MMA site :) I for one support hunting, good kills matt, help control the pet population, shoot a zebra lol

  25. YoMama says:

    They should let him run around without a gun and let the animals hunt him. a Zebra? What a puss.

  26. zack says:

    I think you should all stop bitching about matt killing something for sport, so what if he kills it for sport it’s fun! and i know youre all going to read this and think I’m an awful person and I’m ok with that because you dont know me nor do you know this man! and as far as these animals going to waste you know nothing about hunting in africa all the meat off of these animals is taken by villagers that help during the hunt so it doesnt go to waste. and when matt hunts in the united states he donates the meat from what ever he shots to the needy so take a step back and think about what youve done to help other people live wile doing what you love!

  27. Bearhammer says:

    Im jeolous! Nice shooting Hughes! This is a dream of mine to go over to Africa and hunt.
    P.S. to and any anti hunters I know this isn’t exactly what you want to see, a dead animal in a photo but I have friends who have done this and have told me nothing goes to waste. The locals take everything that Matt doesn’t take with him. Besides that a large portion of the money generated from hunting licenses is used to preserve wildlife habitats.

  28. Tasty Zebra says:

    Wow! I love animals! Their so tasty!

  29. Jimmy joe says:

    I used to like Matt as a fighter , but what an inbread , red neck. To kill for fun is ignorant and morally strange, in a civilised society it is frowned upon because it nothing less than barbaric and cruel . This has little to do with mma and I find it offensive to look at the retarded fool. Killing and eating for a purpose are very different than ending an animals life simply for self gratification .

  30. DMAC says:

    Hughes has always been a solid fighter to me. Hunting isn’t my thing, I feel too sorry for these animals but i do know that it’s necessary due to over population. Hughes came off as sort of a racist during the tuff show but I can be wrong, probably not but yeah lol..

  31. Jon says:

    Baby seal meat is the best…just saying’

    If you don’t like hunting shut your ignorant ass up. If animals are not kept under control (population wise) then disease will run rampant. It’s what you bleeding hearts may call an necessary evil. Animals also kill plenty of humans. If you hit a deer, elk, moose etc with your car there is a chance for death especially with the bigger game. Educate yourselves before taking up an anti hunting stance. Fa gg ots

  32. Kender says:

    Living the dream.

  33. Mwill says:

    I’m not against hunting but I just don’t get the “sport hunting”. I also eat meat but after getting out of the Marine Corps, I find it silly that anyone can go out with a rifle to kill an animal and call it a sport. If it is a sport than shouldn’t there be another human with a rifle hunting him? Let the best hunter win! Now, THAT’s a sport…….or war, however you want to look at it.

  34. Radko says:

    this kinda made me sick.there is nothing pristine in killing such glorious creatures.who we all ready menace without pointing expensive weaponry so that we can hang em on our walls and show to people who don’t give a shit about you.

  35. Has Been says:

    Personally I don’t agree or like hunting. Keep the photos to yourself.
    I don’t see how people can get enjoyment in killing a defenseless animal.
    Join the army and legally kill terrorists. But they armed, better stick to killing animals tough guy

  36. MH is a dickhead says:

    Well Done Matt Hughes you fucking hero.

  37. Sasquatch says:

    I love hunting!… I’m going to Africa and shoot me some of those critters as well!. Pretty much shot everything North America has to offer… time for some new game!
