"I needed to give myself the best shot to win and I needed short, squatty guys who have good over hand rights and great jiu-jitsu. In Vegas, there’s no one better than Marc Laimon to know what Serra’s going to do, how he’s going to do it. [Serra] caught Karo (Parisyan), he caught (Chris) Lytle, he’s caught everybody he’s fought with that stinking right hand of his at one point or another throughout the fight. It’s tough because not only does he swing up at you, he kind of has a weird-looping-hooking kind of right hand. It’s not really straight. It’s more of a hooking right hand that comes at you, kind of an uppercut as well, but he’s also really aggressive. He’ll jump right at you. For me, it kind of works out, because as far as I know, I’m the first fight on the pay-per-view, which makes it easier for me because I can go back, take a shower real quick, get cleared by doctors and then go have fun and watch everybody else fight."

-- Former number one welterweight contender Frank Trigg plans on disposing of Matt Serra nice and early so that he can get cleaned up and watch the rest of the UFC 109 fight card at the Mandalay Bay Events Center tonight (Feb. 6) in Las Vegas. "Twinkle Toes" has one more chance to prove he still belongs with the rest of the contenders in the UFC welterweight division when he takes on "The Terror" in the opening televised bout of the evening. Trigg wants to avoid falling into an 0-2 hole after returning from more than four years of competition outside of the world's largest fight promotion. Josh Koscheck spoiled his return to the Octagon with a first round technical knockout at UFC 103 last September. Is Trigg going to rebound at UFC 109 -- or get bounced out for good?
