Thoughts on Matt Hughes vs. Matt Serra

New, 3 comments

Just got a call from Joe Silva and as of right now it looks like I’ll be fighting Matt Serra in Vegas on May 23rd. This is not 100% confirmed, but I believe it is going to be on this date. -matt

That's the latest on Hughes/Serra according to Matt Hughes official website.

I'm not a huge fan of either fighter, but for some odd reason I'm actually looking forward to this fight. I've always been a fan of a good old fashioned fight between two fighters that don't like one another. However, the main reason I'm intrigued by this fight is simply to see where Matt Hughes is at. Matt Serra is the perfect opponent to answer that question in my opinion. He's a scrappy fighter that can nullify a lot of Hughes game. The question I want to know the answer to is this. Has the game bypassed Matt Hughes this fast, or is GSP and Thiago Silva both really that good?

I'm pretty sure I already know the answer to that question, but there's nothing like seeing empirical evidence to prove it.
