According to a forum post left by Matt Hughes on his own web site (Matt-Hughes.com), his next fight for the UFC welterweight title against Matt Serra on December 29.
Here’s what Hughes said:
I have been told that it will be in Las Vegas on New Year’s Eve. I do not know where yet, MGM or Mandalay Bay. I would not make plans yet — just letting you know, matt
Previous reports indicated that Hughes’ fight against Serra would be taking place in November in New Jersey. There was also a post in the Underground forum that Serra’s brother, Nick Serra, has also confirmed that his brother’s next bout will be in December.
