Matt Serra: Matt Hughes 'is a one trick pony'


Props: Sherdog.com

Quoteworthy:

"This fight should happen. A lot has been said by both sides, and I don’t plan on talking without walking. I plan on fighting. I would love to be the nail in his coffin.... Matt Hughes is a one trick pony, but he’s very good at that one trick. Top position is his thing, both submission wise and ground-and-pound. That’s what he’s the master of, and I know that. I feel that my jiu-jitsu is going to have to be where it should be, and I plan on doing more wrestling."

Former UFC welterweight champion Matt Serra continues the steady drumbeat of talk that surrounds an eventual "grudge match" with nemesis Matt Hughes. Both fighters are currently recovering from injuries and hope to settle their score once and for all in early 2009. The pair was originally slated to face off in December 2007 before a back injury to Serra forced him off the New Year's Eve weekend card.
