BREAKING NEWS: Matt Fighting Georges St. Pierre at UFC 79!


   November 24th, 2007

I’m going to fight Georges St. Pierre on December 29th. I’ve got a couple reasons why I’ve made this decision and I will share those at a later time. I’ve asked for this to be for an interim title and if Matt Serra can’t fight in a year, then this would just be the title fight; but I don’t know if that is going to happen right now. I will keep you all posted.
-Matt

EDIT: This WILL BE for the interim title, so it will be a 5-round fight. -Matt

Matt, I love you buddy, but I hope you know what your doing. Goerge and Serra are as different in fighting styles as a John Deere and a Ford tractor. How hard is it to switch up your game plan this close to a fight? I am with you either way. I just have had my heart set on you mashing Serra’s ears together. I know you will be ready. Nahum 1:7

Hey Matt! Sucks to here that Matt “The ***-Clown” Serra is not able to fight. I was hoping you were going to put him in his place the first round. Guess St. Pierre will have to take that role…. :) Not sure how often you read this post, but there is one thing I hope you don’t really consider, and that my friend is retirement. I remember what you said on the Ultimate Fighter about having only a few fights left in you, and my jaw dropped. I really hope you stick it out for awhile. I am a huge fan and I’m from Davenport, so I guess hometown hero place a role. Me and a couple buddies where going to be flying down to Vegas for the Ultimate Fighter Finale. Hope to see you around!! Take care and Godspeed my friend….

WAR HUGHES!! St. Pierre is going to see Matt’s ground and pound in full effect.


Steven Says:

Matt:

This is why you are a true champion. You never duck fights and you always step up. I admire you greeatly as a fighter and as a man. You are a terrific role model, and I will be teaching my boys about you when they are older.
I respect your devotion to your faith, and I respect the way you walk the walk.
May G-d Almighty continue to bless you, and I will be praying for you on December 29yh.


Preach Says:

Awesome brother I cant wait to see this pan out .. Much love and support


New Scott Says:

Thank You!


dscherer Says:

I know Matt would never make an excuse, so I will do it for him…
What alot of people don’t realize is that Matt fought GSP only two months after he fought Penn. Not only that, his daughter was born at the same time and it was harvesting season. I have a hard time believing that he was able to train full time through all that. I would know because I work full time, go to college and have a new born myself. My workouts have been few and far between lately. I can’t wait to see Hughes back to his old self.


MeanGrouchy Says:

I am glad you are fighting GSP but i wish you had fought serra first, that would of gave you a warmup for GSP when you held the belt you averaged 3 fights a year and you really took it to them all, and now its been 8 months since your last fight so I hope and Pray that you have been training hard. Istarted following MMA or UFC about 5 years ago and i remember watching you fight and you are what got me hooked on this sport. I must say that i didnt become a fan of yours just because you were the champ at that time, I became a fan of yours because the way you handle yourself and how you have lived your life=(at least from what the media has shown us). So no matter what happens you will always be the best fighter pound for pound in the world. So go kick some BUTT PLEASE



ALL-THINGS-THROUGH-HIM Says:

ITS AN AMAZING THING TO SEE SUCH A SOLID MAN CONTINUE TO STEP UP TO THE PLATE. MATT, YOU CONTINUE TO SERVE AS A PRIME EXAMPLE OF HOW CHRISTIANS SHOULD HANDLE ADVERSITY. ST, PIERRE CERTAINLY ISN’T SERRA, (THANKFULLY FOR HIS SAKE), AS HE POSES A COMPLETELY DIFFERENT SET OF POTENTIAL PROBLEMS, BUT MATT, YOU REMAIN UNDAUNTED. YOU ARE SUCH A MAN OF CLASS AND CHARACTER THAT I KNOW YOU’LL THRIVE IN THIS SITUATION. KEEP TRAINING HARD, AND KNOW YOU HAVE UNWAIVERING SUPPORT OF YOUR BROTHERS IN CHRIST. “ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE THROUGH CHRIST!”


jhking33 Says:

Matt, I wanted to see you kick Serra’s butt but this will work as long as you are prepared! You have mentioned before about not training the way you should but it seems this time you are more focused so we are all behind you! I think GSP needs to respect you more then you can go after the little runt Serra. Good Luck, God Bless!


george fagan Says:

serra got lucky hurting his back now he don’t have to get his head hurt by matt hughes for a little longer. good luck in your fight with gsp.
