Matt Serra to be Inducted Into UFC Hall of Fame
By FCF Staff
The UFC has announced that former welterweight champ Matt Serra will join the promotion’s Hall of Fame as a “Pioneer”.
Serra made his UFC debut way back in 2001, and proceeded to compete for the promotion until 2010. During his run, Serra fought at 155 and then later, 170, and shocked the world in 2007 when he stopped Georges St-Pierre to become welterweight champ. Serra received a title shot after winning the TUF 4 competition.
The New York fighter proceeded to lose their 2008 rematch, and Serra went on to fight three more times after that. The now 43 year-old, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu black belt retired with a 11-7 record.
Serra will be officially inducted into the UFC Hall of Fame during International Fight Week, on July 5th.
