The time is getting closer. A fight that would have been a lot more relevant back in '07 when it should have happened after TUF 6. Coaches Matt Hughes (43-7-0) & Matt Serra (16-5-0) gave us all a memorable TUF season and a lot of hype leading into their match. Most of that hype has died as the match was hindered for far to long and has lost some of it's initial appeal. With that being said...
I STILL CAN'T WAIT!
Let's take a quick look at both men.
This will be Hughes 21st fight with 15 wins and 5 losses in his 9 1/2 years with the UFC.
Wins- 7 by KO/TKO, 4 by Submission, 4 by Decision
Losses- 2 by TKO, 3 by Submission
Hughes is definitely my pick for this fight. I think that Hughes will take Serra down prety quick and keep it there till he's done.
This will be Serra's 12th fight with 6 wins and 5 losses in his 8 years with the UFC.
Wins- 1 by TKO, 1 by Submission, 4 by Decision
Losses- 2 by TKO, 3 by Decision
The only chance I see for Serra is if he can defend the takedown and keep it on the feet. I know he is a black belt in BJJ but I don't see that working very well for him against Hughes.
Where do you guys think this fight will leave the winner/loser? Would the winner be able to make another run at the title?
