If you're wondering why Matt Serra hasn't been booked to fight since his UFC 98 clash against rival Matt Hughes in May, it's not because he's been injured or taking the loss too hard. No, Serra has simply been busy working on his new 83,000 square foot MMA gym that will be opening soon.

"It's going to be a beautiful martial arts facility," Serra told FanHouse on Thursday. "It's going to be the best one on Long Island, that's for sure."

Matt Serra will never even crack the top 5 again. I only see him beating TJ Grant, Yoshida and Kevin Burns, even people like Sotiropolous and possibly even Cipper would beat him, I couldnt care less about seeing Serra fight again, his fights are always boring, not main card material.

Not going to happen. How is he going to get a title shot when he can't even beat Hughes?

Maybe AKA should start calling Serra out if they can't get a fight with Hughes

I would like to see him fight at 155 again, he had a pretty good fight with bj a couple years ago. I think he could be competive there based on his size and power, as well as being one of the top jiu jitsu guys out there believe it or not

Which fights are you talking about? The TUF 4 finnale I'll admit was lackluster but other than that I've allways been entertained by his fights.

Have him fight Condit...that would be an outstanding fight

And while FanHouse has learned that Frank Trigg is one of the leading candidates to face Serra in February, he would not confirm nor deny that "Twinkle Toes" will be his next opponent.



I wouldn't mind seeing him fight Trigg, seems like a good option anyway. Two vets with some name recognition.

While Hughes does nothing but gloats and poses on the sidelines. I can't support Serra unless he gets into shape, and that means fighting at LW IMO.

Apparently I am to spread the love so Props to you sir! I'm generally pretty damn entertained by a Matt Serra fight.
