UFC 79, Matt Serra is out.

Looks like Serra was hurt in training so GSP is taking his place at UFC 79.

Re: UFC 79, Matt Serra is out.

Thats too bad - for Matt Hughes! GSP's gonna kill him. I mean Matt Hughes is an awesome fighter, and I'd take him over Matt Serra (freak win over GSP) - but when it comes down to it - GSP is one of the only guys that can deal the kind of damage that'll get to Matt Hughes. And IMO he's got better technique. But you never know with UFC fights, anything can happen. It'll certainly be entertaining.

Re: UFC 79, Matt Serra is out.

Too bad, I was looking forward to Serra and Hughes. GSP will still be a great fight. The real show is going to be Liddell and Silva though, damn why didn't they do that a year ago before Liddell lost the belt. I also heard that Dan Henderson is going to go down in weight to fight Anderson Silva, that will be nuts too.

Re: UFC 79, Matt Serra is out.

Serra suffered a herniated disk. That sounds serious. I wonder if it will be a career ending type injury?

No, actually he'll be fighting the winner of GSP / Hughes. This is good for GSP as he gets to get his belt back by demolishing Hughes again, and then gets to avenge his loss to Serra.

That would drive me nuts, I used to work with a guy like that!

I wanted Hughs to kill Serra!

Dan Henderson and A. Silva, wow, great fight! I like Henderson! Silva is a bad a$$ though!

To be fair we are both that guy, so it's cool. The main thing I learned is you can say the meanest sht to someone, but if you say it with a bad Russian accent it works to break the tension.

Hopefully he'll kick him in the nuts a few times again like he did last time. It was wonderful watching GSP completely rule Matt Hughes.

I definitely think Serra vs. GSP was a fluke, and that same situation won't happen again if they fight. GSP has some of the best technique in the UFC right now.

I do not like Matt Hughes, and I was really looking forward to Serra vs. Hughes, but like Gilk said, the real fight is gonna be Liddell and Silva. I think I might actually try not to drink too much that night so I will actually remember it!

Henderson and Anderson Silva will be a great fight, too. I'm still wondering what's going on with Randy Couture. Dana White is kind-of acting like an a$$ about "owning him" for the remainder of his contract.

I just haven't liked Matt Hughes before both of the shows, and for a very long time.

is it how he fights, or is it his pre-fight interviews --- fighters are told to say certain things to hype up the fights.. a fight with negativity going into it will draw a bigger ppv buy.. i.e. phil baroni, tito ortiz, or even chris leben
