Matt Serra: A Fight With Sean Sherk ‘Could Be A Nice Last Fight For Me’

Former UFC welterweight champion Matt Serra hasn’t been inside the Octagon since a 2010 loss to Chris Lytle.

Despite the extended absence from the Octagon, Serra (11-7) is not retired – just waiting for the right fight to be presented.

During a recent interview with Rebellion Media, Serra targeted fellow former UFC champion Sean Sherk as a potential opponent to conclude his MMA career.

He brought up that we started at around the same time and we both got to titles in our weight classes. We’re around the same size, definitely the same height. He thought it sounded like a good fight, so did I. That could be a nice last fight for me.

Serra stunned the MMA world when he knocked out Georges St-Pierre in 2007 to win the UFC welterweight title. The following year, he lost by TKO to St-Pierre, and has competed just three times since.

Sherk (36-4-1) has also been sidelined since 2010, when he defeated Evan Dunham via decision. Sherk has battled injuries that have kept him on the shelf.
