Serra Out of UFC 79

November 23, 2007

Today the UFC announced that Matt Serra has pulled out of his 12/29 Welterweight Title fight against Matt Hughes with a herniated disc. No replacement was named. The announcement is the latest disappointment in what has been an unlucky year for the company with injuries and upsets spoiling several marque matchups.

The Welterweight division has been on hold for Serra-Hughes since Serra won the title in April. The postponement of the fight also pushes back another highly anticipated rematch, Hughes-St. Pierre III which was expected to take place next Spring, possibly in Montreal.
