PostSubject: Matt Serra Confirms April Fight with Georges St. Pierre   Sat 05 Jan 2008, 9:29 am



UFC welterweight champion Matt Serra (9-4 MMA, 6-4 UFC) will, in fact, return from a herniated disc to fight interim champ Georges St. Pierre (15-2 MMA, 9-2 UFC) in April — at Canada’s first-ever UFC event.

On Friday Serra confirmed the fight with out friend Mike Chiappetta of NBCSports.com.

The title-unification bout will headline the upcoming Canadian show, which is tentatively scheduled for April 19 at the Bell Centre in Montreal.

(www.mmajunkie.com) mentioned the possibility of the Serra-St. Pierre title fight on Tuesday, and two days later, Serra told The Canadian Press that he was definitely willing to take the fight and expected to be healed in time for it.

It now appears to be a done deal.

Serra pulled out of last month’s UFC 79 main event with Matt Hughes because of his recent back injury. With Serra sidelined, the UFC instead booked former champ St. Pierre for the fight — and issued the winner the title of “interim” welterweight champion. St. Pierre, who lost his title when he was upset by Serra in April, scored a second-round submission of Hughes and was awarded the recently created interim belt.

Serra recently voiced his displeasure with the UFC’s decision to award an interim title.

As we previously reported, Canadian middleweight Jason MacDonald says he will also be part of the upcoming event. Additionally, fellow Canadian Jonathan Goulet may also be booked for the show, though his management says nothing has been officially decided.

I beg to differ. All Serra has to do is BREATHE BREATHE and PICK EM APAT!!!!(yes i know I spelled it wrong, but thats how serra says it) and the fight will be all his...well according to matt serra's one dimensional cornering class 101 that I seen, thats all a good fighter needs to do to win.

he isn't ready for a title shot. i'm hoping he can bounce back from the staph but, it worries me. seems to have a bad omen when fighters fight for the first time after.
