I'm French Canadian and I like Serra. He seems like a really cool dude. Also, the "Frenchie and red wine" dig still makes me laugh.

stevekt -  I did not like Serra at all in the early days of his UFC career. I didn't become a fan of his until he did the TUF Comeback season. He became one of my favorite fighters and favorite MMA personalities after that. Phone Post

Couldn't agree more, seems like an awesome dude, no matter what he does from here on out he gets a lifetime pass from me for calling Mark Lemon out on his season(the comeback was by far the best season of TUF IMO)

Matt should definetly be in the UFC HOF! I remember Matt from the old Hook N Shoot days when he would drive all the way from New York, to Indiana, and just destroy guys. He was just at another level. Very fun to watch! The way he carried himself outside the cage, treating everyone the same, so down to earth, and just a cool dude. #future UFC HOF!

I always find a great deal of dignity when a fighter recognizes when they should retire, and then follows through. Serra certainly displays that dignity. Phone Post

Great interview all around, thanks for that. Agreed with Serra needing a TV show, or more of those UFC video blogs

Good luck with everything Matt Serra. Fan for life. Not just about your fighting but I have always thought you have a great perspective on the personal, too. Cheers.
