Serra: I'd come back to fight Hughes


Matt Serra is retired from mixed martial arts, but there is one opponent who could make the former UFC welterweight champion make a comeback:

“I believe I’m done with fighting,” Serra said. “Don’t get me wrong – the only other fight I would ever … If they ever said, ‘What about this?,’ I could definitely get back in shape and have another tussle with Matt Hughes. That would be fun. But only because of the way the first one ended and everything else. I’m sure people would like to see me hit that guy, and vice versa.”

Very true, and it's not like Renzo was well into his 40's or anything.

Never come close...except for a razor thin decision loss that many folks thought he won.   Hughes is legend, no doubt.  But Serra is very much in the same league.  Saying he isn't only shows you don't like him.

It would look like two oompa-loompa's fighting.

He didn't beat Weidman.

Voted up for lolz     I also thought Serra won the first one, but it was very close, and I guess I see how the judges scored it the other way.   Like most of you, I miss seeing both of these guys perform.

I thought Serra won the first fight. Matter of fact I think Hughes did too if you rewatch the end of the fight

fight was a draw. Serra clearly took 1, Hughes very clearly took 2, Rd 3 was very even. Hughes with takedowns, Serra attempting subs and getting reversals. Nothing monumental, either way. Very even round, imo.

First fight could have been stopped for serras accidental headbutt on Hughes that dropped him. Would love to see this fight but judging by serra at weidmans last fight it'd have to be at hwt.

I have always loved watching Matt fight.And would be thrilled to see him fight one more time.But, jebus, after seeing him recently, I think just him getting down to weight could be the basis for an inspiring season long reality show.
