Let the hype begin for the long awaited matchup of the Matts. The rivalry between Matt Hughes and Matt Serra started when they were opposing coaches on the Ultimate Fighter 6. These guys blend like oil and water.
Hughes was the guest fighter during The Fight Club UFC 96 question and answer session. Serra and the subject of submission artists was brought up to the former welterweight champ who then quoted the great philosopher Phil Baroni. He and UFC announcer Mike Goldberg also said Serra, a jiu-jitsu practitioner, is too small to fight at welterweight:
"Me being a wrestler, wrestlers are all about control," said Hughes. "That's going to work against him too. You get on top of a guy who should be at 55 at 5-foot-5, there's going to be a lot of things working against him."
