GSP will get the winner of the Matt Serra vs. Matt Hughes title fight at UFC 79 on December 29, reports the Canadian Press. The event is nicknamed “Nemesis” due to the two Matt’s dislike for each other, as apparent on the Spike TV reality show The Ultimate Fighter, where the two are coaches.
Will Montreal’s George St-Pierre avenge his title loss to Serra from last April at UFC 69 or will it be Hughes vs. St-Pierre III? Two time welterweight champion Matt Hughes believes Serra got lucky vs. St-Pierre and would lose “nine out of 10 times” against him. In response, Serra says he “can’t stand Matt Hughes” but respects him in the ring.
