When Matt Hughes retired, the UFC named him the vice president of athletic development and government relations and to oversee the new code of conduct. Recent retiree Matt Serra didn’t get any job offers from the UFC and feels he would do better than Hughes in the role.
“Maybe I should get Matt Hughes’ job,” said Serra to Bloody Elbow. ‘Do you think the fighters would be more comfortable talking to me about their problems or talking to that bible bashing jerk-off? I’m only kidding. I’m not really kidding. I really can’t stand that guy.”
The two met under the UFC banner, with Hughes taking the decision win.
Serra recently announced his retirement and stated one of the main reasons was due to having a rib removed. He retires at 11-7 with a nine year career for the UFC. Serra hadn’t fought since a decision loss to Chris Lytle at UFC 119 in September 2010.
