The following is a breaking news story from Matt-Hughes.com, the official website of the former UFC Welterweight champion:
BREAKING NEWS: Matt Fighting Georges St. Pierre at UFC 79!
November 24th, 2007
I’m going to fight Georges St. Pierre on December 29th. I’ve got a couple reasons why I’ve made this decision and I will share those at a later time. I’ve asked for this to be for an interim title and if Matt Serra can’t fight in a year, then this would just be the title fight; but I don’t know if that is going to happen right now. I will keep you all posted.
EDIT: This WILL BE for the interim title, so it will be a 5-round fight. –Matt
