Maybe it's me but Serra came off kind of like a dick..Hughes had his number and seemed to play hois cards well in the 1 st ep. Serra' streatment of his boy Joey was kind of brutal..almost like he is too obsessed with beating Hughes.


That and he sounds like Bea Arthur in the corner.."Breathing the whole time...work that D... Been there before..."

I'm from NJ but man..his voice is like nails on a chalkboard.

he is an annoying little fucker...but he seems pretty humble to me? he gives credit where credit is due for the most part...he did for gsp at least...im sure if asked a in an interview how he thought he matched up with hughes, he would give hughes some credit. i dont think he would say "oh hes a bumb and im going to beat his ass" or somethin of that nature. he might say the latter, but after he gives hughes some credit

No, what he'd do is what he always does and has already done in e1 TUF6.

He'll whine about the other guy and try to cry his way to looking good.

He's a putz

Its important to focus on not only what people do, but why they do it. Actions and words can immediately be misinterpreted without knowing the reason behind it. It is only when you understand both what has been said and the reasoning do you truly start to understand the personality of the person.

This season is most interesting to me from a psychological standpoint more than any.

It isn't you.. Serra DID come off as a dick and a hypocrit (as I stated in another thread, he did exactly what he accused Hughes of doing, to his friend no less). I am glad Serra is showing his true colors.. and doing it with flying colors so far as next episode it looks like he wants someone kicked off the show.

I hear you. I am from NJ too and I hear LI accents once in a while. But Matt Serra's is just unbearable

Serra is a real cock knocker for sure!!! Can't stand him, he accuses Hughes, who I personally think is a stand up guy, of being a dick and having an ego, calling hughes the Jock who gave the nerds a weggie, etc... But yet Serra is always the one bad mouthing people.... Serra is a little DICK period.

Serra is the TRUTH! Matt Hughes IS a dick and walks around like he is superior to everyone, you can see it in his tone of voice, mannerisms and his commentary. Serra is a very outspoken dude, but he speaks how he feels, even if you disagree with him and his viewpoints, HOW can you not respect that?


I'd rather someone talk shit about me TO MY FACE, rather than smile in my face and talk shit behind my back. Serra is a man's Man, Bubba the Love Sponge even said that.

Serra seems to be an alright guy but the friggin guy is obsessed with Matt Hughes! You can't deny what Hughes has done in the octagon but he does seem cocky. But to obsess over it to the extent Serra does seems a little crazy to me.

what?? superior to everyone? is that why he gives TONS of time to an orphanage charity and gives a high percent of his money to charity? Hughes does have a strong assuredeness about him, that can be taken as cocky..i get it...but I must say, you preach about truth..well, he's one of the top 3 fighters in his w class, so why would he ACT like Serra deserves his respect? He doesn't!

Honestly, i can not stand Serra, but that could just be because I'm a huge GSP fan, but it seems like to me he walks around so cocky, he better soak this up because after Hughes takes his block off i don't even think he will get his rematch, he probably will but i can't stand him just something about him. sure he talks shit about hughes but hughes coems off like a dick sometimes. i want to see Serra in Hughes crucifix and getting elbows directly in his nose, that would be great for me.

I'm not worrying about the psychological aspect of the show or anything.

My opinion is that it seems Serra can't go a few minutes without saying something derragatory towards Hughes. Sure, they went back and forth at the beginning of the show, but it seemed that Hughes' negativity towards Serra faded as the show went on.

Later.

DUDE You made no sense.... you can tel by mannerisms and voice tone that Hughes is a Dick, but gay boy over rated lucky punch Serra can squawk in that awful NY accent sounding like a chicken, talking smack about people all the time, and how he can beat anyone..... but HUGHES is the dick huh.....

Hughes is very confident in himself and has the right to be... look what he has done and beat in his career... compare that to the one punch wonder Serra.....

NO Comparison!!! Hughes will destroy Serra and I will lover every minute!

What he does with his money is his business (not to mentions donating to charity can get you HUGE write offs on taxes in the right states) and unrelated to his attitude.

I mean, is it ANY wonder that nearly everyone that has dealt with him has negative things to say about him, Serra, Joe Riggs, Frank Trigg, GSP, all the guys on TUF4, etc. have ALL said Hughes is a Dick (in various terms).

And ALL fighters deserve respect just for the level they compete at anyway. You shouldn't disrespect people just because you think you can whip their ass, I mean Hughes talked ALL kinds of shyt about BJ Penn before their first fight, he got his ass whipped and STILL proceeded to downplay BJ and his skills. Thats a dickmove if I ever seen one.


And like it or not Serra is the CHAMP and KO'ed GSP (something Hughes has NEVER done) and he DESERVES respect for that.

1st, Ain't nothing wrong with the NY accent, I'm sure a lot of people don't like Hughes country accent (coming from someone upnorth, you can hear it). Get over it.

2nd, Serra NEVEr went around "talking smack about people all the time, and how he can beat anyone". He said he BEAT GSP (which he did) and he will beat Hughes (which EVERY fighter says about their next opponent). He said what he did, what's wrong with that.

3rd, Hughes is a two-faced asshole. Look how he was acting all smug about Serra "I'm not the one who's been badmouthing YOU" Then they cut to his confessional and he's like "Serra got lucky! he's not in the top ten! He'll be an easy fight" etc. Also look how he was all friendly with Joe Scarola while he was talkin to him saying he gonna coach him to the championship, but on the one-on-one hughes was like "I'm not even gonna pick him, he's not one of the top guys here".

4th, Hughes DOES have the right to be confident, but he doesn't have the right to disrespect people, which he does all the time (purposely or inadvertiently).


5th, talk is cheap, put ya money up in December. I'm gonna bet AT LEAST $100 on Serra on the PPV, put yours up on Hughes if you so confidence he gonna take the title.


Til ya do that, your words can't touch me!

i like serra and i think hes funny.

he didnt even go hard on joey, and joey gave up. but am i the only one who caught, right when joey lost, serra yells "fucking pussy". i think thats what he said anyways.

serra was angry and understandably. he lost his first round pick and friend becuase he just gave up. and in the next episode joey wants to leave. kinda sad. the guy has no heart,.

whats gonna be funny, is the way serra is running his mouth,and hughes finally gets to give him his ass whipping and take his belt.then we will see how serra handles that

Serra is being depicted as a tool and Huges calm and cool. I can't help wondering how much of the picture being painted is as a result of the editers and producers prodding for more flare and clipping the most dramatic.
It appears Huges thinks before speaking and Sera speaks his thoughts.

Hughes's faults are a lot less than Serra's. The worst you can say about him is that he's been overly competitive and condescending to people. Serra, on the other hand, has been downright abusive to people, some of which really didn't deserve it. Rich Franklin, for example, didn't deserve Serra ragging on him behind his back. And Hughes, for all his faults, doesn't deserve to be name-called on national TV.

Serra's a bum, pure and simple.

Serra's pretty cocky for a guy who just got plain lucky against GSP. Hughes was right if he said GSP would beat him 90% of the time.

But, to totally disrespect a guy like Matt Hughes is inexcusable. I can't wait to see Hughes dominate this bum in Dec.

I thought it was pretty stupid... but stupid is as stupid does says Forest... I can't wait to see Matt destroy Serra, then he will be back in the "B" leagues where he belongs.... perhaps in the IFL so people can hear his sqawking hi pitched voice saying " Been there before, your good your good... Hammer fists hammer fists... Breath Drago Breath (Drago can go with him)."
