Matt Serra Speaks On Retiring From MMA, BJ Penn & More

Former UFC Welterweight Champion Matt Serra recently spoke about retiring from the sport, BJ Penn and a host of other topics during a recent appearance on MMA Junkie Radio.

Regarding retirement, Serra said “I know why it’s hard to walk away from the game. Trust me, I know.”

Serra continued, “that feeling – to know you’re never going to have that feeling again? Listen, man, when you have a good night, get a knockout, finish somebody – oh my God, it doesn’t matter anything that happens after that. That single moment, nothing can be wrong in the world. That’s where your head’s at. Cloud nine is an understatement.”
