Once again, former welterweight champ Matt Serra entered his UFC 109 bout against Frank Trigg the smaller fighter. Although the division is stacked with LARGE 170-pounders, the compact slugger insists the bigger weight class is where he belongs.
“I’ll fight at a catchweight, but I’m not going to 155. Leading up to the fight, people are like, technically you can make it, but it’s (expletive) brutal man,” Serra told MMAWeekly.com of the possibility of him dropping back down to the smaller lightweight division.
Serra’s answer may have been different had he been overwhelmed by Trigg, however Frank was put to sleep before he could present any resistance. The electrifying win bumped the New Yorker’s pro record to 10-6, however Serra’s lost two of last three contests.
It will be interesting to see who the UFC opts to pit the popular fighter up against next.
