Nick Serra vs. Matt Makowski Elite XC fight added to Saturday Night Fights under card

Nick Serra vs. Matt Makowski Elite XC
Nick "The Mad Monkey" Serra (4-2) -- brother of former UFC welterweight champion and The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 4 winner Matt Serra -- will reportedly fight up-and-comer Matt Makowski (2-0) on the undercard of EliteXC's Saturday Night Fights at the Prudential Center in Newark, N.J, on May 31, according to FiveOuncesOfPain.com.

Serra is a New York native; therefore, fighting in the Garden State makes sense for him. He obviously trains with his brother at Serra Jiu Jitsu in Long Island and is a solid submission specialist himself. All four of his career wins, in fact, have been via tap out and he's never been submitted or knocked out.

This will be his first fight since June 23 of last year -- a second round submission (armbar) victory over Mike Varner at Cage Fury Fighting Championships 5: "2 Worlds, One Cage."

Makowski is a 22-year-old fighter out of Philly who has been impressive in his two victories in his short MMA career. He most recently overcame Muay Thai specialist Joe Schilling with a first round rear naked choke at the ShoXC Callenger Series in Atlantic City, N.J. on January 25.

The welterweight showdown is the first undercard bout to be announced or rumored for the prestigious mixed martial arts network television debut on CBS. We know the Serra's can fight or at least roll, so this should be a good scrap for the fans.

Remember that EliteXC under card bouts are and will be streamed LIVE on ProElite.com prior to the 9 p.m. telecast on CBS.
