Quoteworthy:

"Well after what happen the first time with him tapping out, I mean they called it a TKO, but he tapped. I think now a lot of his attitude towards me has to do with his mental state. I think he needs me to be the bad guy. I mean whatever he's got to do to get himself there is fine with me. I mean if he has to lie on the couch, and listen to his shrink to tell him to put Matt Hughes head on my body that's cool. I definitely don't hold him in the same light as Matt Hughes, but I think he's got to put himself in the mindset that he doesn't like me, and that's cool. I got a lot of friends and family, so if he wants to be enemies it's not the end of the world."

UFC Welterweight Champion Matt Serra talks about his upcoming fight with Georges St. Pierre at UFC 83: "Serra vs. St. Pierre II" on April 19 at the Bell Centre in Montreal, Quebec. "The Terror" talks a lot about what goes into his fight preparation, as well as reaffirms that he is 100 percent healthy.
