Matt Serra knows what it feels like to stun the MMA world, as he bested Georges St-Pierre for the UFC welterweight title several years ago.
Saturday night, Serra saw his pupil, Chris Weidman, do the same when he defeated Anderson Silva for the UFC middleweight title at UFC 162: Silva vs. Weidman.
“Words can’t describe how I’m feeling right now!!!” Serra posted on Twitter. “Beyond happy, proud and excited for the new champ (Weidman).”
Serra was not in attendance for the fight.
