Matt Serra comments while on the MMAHour.

Serra comments on a number of things at the top of the list his potential return to the octagon.

When asked if we would see him compete inside the octagon again.

“I’m going to say if I have to lean one way I’m definitely going to say you’re going to see me again,”

“I really got no answers for you as far as when and who and all that kind of stuff,”

“I really think it’s so official just to say you’re done. Because you never know how you’re going to feel the next day, you’re never going to know if something comes up and excites you. But right now I’ve got my plate full.”

Serra comments on his coaching responsibilities and has special praise for Al Iaquinta who competes this weekend against Mike Chiesa in the final of The Ultimate Fighter Live.

“It’s not about me. It’s about these young kids coming up. Look at Al. What is he, 25, 24 [years old]?,” Serra asks. “He’s a young kid and I’m telling you. You gotta be impressed with that kid. There’s not one fight where you could say one guy he face in [the TUF: Live competition] where you’re ‘alright, he’s got a gimme to the next round’. That guy fought some studs on that show.”

“Not only did he get tough opponents,” Serra continues, “but he looked better each fight. The kid looked great.”

“He’s always been a great kid. He’s a humble kid and I hope he gets all the success in the world because he’ll be able to handle it,”
