UFC welterweight champion Matt Serra indicated in a recent interview with the Canadian Press that he believes he’ll be ready for a possible unification match with UFC interim welterweight champion Georges St. Pierre in April:
The 33-year-old from Long Island, N.Y., has yet to resume full training from the two herniated discs in his lower back that forced him out of the recent UFC 79 grudge match against Matt Hughes in Las Vegas. But he says April sounds doable, even if it means venturing into hostile territory north of the border.
“I’m definitely up for that,” he told The Canadian Press in an interview.
It’s believed that the match between Serra and St. Pierre will take place in April in St. Pierre’s hometown of Montreal.
