White Says ‘No’ To Serra vs. Hughes II

Two players from the old-school turned heads yesterday after a twitter convo ended with a, ‘Call Dana’.

Matt Serra and Matt Hughes have a storied rivalry that started with a TUF season and ended in a ‘Fight of the Night’ earning battle (That Hughes won). I use the term ‘ended’ loosely though, because as of yesterday, the two former champions were trying to set up a fight.

Unfortunately for fight fans, Dana White nixed the idea during today’s Media Scrum.

“I get it, they don’t like each other. It’s not even a sideshow. Both great competitors, great champions. Matt Hughes is a guy who helped us build this thing, as did Serra. Serra was always a great guy to us. But this doesn’t need to happen… Where are they going to fight, super heavyweight?”

    another perfect example of the big fucking douche bag Dana white failing to realize a golden opportunity to easily make a lot of money. Fire this mother fucker before he makes the ufc crash and burn.

  2. bozz888 says:

    This is the respect he shows for 2 guys that helped build the ufc and fought with respect ,its no wonder he is so unliked im starting to agree he is an asshole anymore…

    If
    Bellator is smart, they will make this happen…

    • UFC 84 Forever says:

      Matt Hughes won’t ever fight for bellator; not only is he extremely loyal to the UFC, it would cost him his comfy office job.

  4. Elgin Perry says:

    I can’t believe Dana called THEM FAT. He should take a look at his Head. He’s become so stuck on himself he can barely get his head through a door, He doesn’t want to pay, he wants to limit sponsors and now he doesn’t want to bring his fans the fights we want to see. What a douche bag.

  5. Don Bongo says:

    these are the fights we want to see – both still have something to give each other no doubt about it

  6. Jeff Gabelman says:

    let em fight Dana. Damn you need good fights right now. I would rather see this fight than Ronda Rousey!
