Matt Hughes: 'It's going to be Matt Serra in January or February'

Props: PWB Podcast

Quoteworthy:

"Right now, I’ve talked to Joe Silva quite a few times and we’re looking at maybe January. He has told me it’s going to be Matt Serra, so I’m looking at January or February. That’ll give my knee plenty of time to heal, if [it heals] natural. If I have to go under the knife, I don’t know what my time frame will be but we'll see. Right now we're looking like January."

Former welterweight champion Matt Hughes talks about a knee injury that he sustained in his loss to Thiago Alves at UFC 85: "Bedlam″ back in June, as well as his looming showdown with Matt Serra tentatively set for January. Serra and Hughes -- who are about as opposite as two people can get -- were opposing coaches in The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 6 and were supposed to fight at UFC 79: "Nemesis" in December 2007. However, Serra had to withdraw because of a serious back injury. The pair have been yapping about getting in the Octagon together for more than a year … expect more of the same until this thing is settled.
