11.23.2007 - 3:57:00 PM - Matt Serra injured; withdraws from UFC 79

The UFC announced today that Matt Serra had to withdraw from his Welterweight Championship fight with Matt Hughes at UFC 79 due to an injury. Serra sustained an injury to his back after a Jiu Jitsu seminar where he was demonstrating a move and fell to ground in excruciating pain.

After going to the hospital and having an MRI they found out that Serra had suffered a herniated disk. Serra has this to say about the injury:

"This is the hardest thing I've ever had to do," said Serra. "I've never had a back injury before; I could hardly get off the MRI table. There is no way I can train through this, and I'm devastated, especially because this was such an important fight. I was looking forward to fighting Matt Hughes. All my training was going phenomenally until Monday - All I can do now is to get better and to fight again as soon as possible."

Now I know that this isn't Matt Serra's fault but the fucking 170 lb. division has been frozen for 6 god damn months now because of this whole TUF 6 Serra vs Hughes thing and now it's not even going to happen. Well it may but then we'll put the welterweight division on freeze again for another 3 or 4 months. This not only effects Serra and Hughes but it also fucks over GSP, Fitch, Parisyan and all the other 170 lbers out there waiting for there chance.

The other bad thing for the UFC is that they could potentially have back to back PPV broadcasts without title fights. Now I don't really have shit else to do but we should be seeing some damn title defenses. I understand that Chuck vs Wandy is a big fight and definitely Main Event worthy but both are coming off 2 losses and I just have a bad feeling we're seeing the Iceman on a downward slope. I think this fight will probably end up being a little quicker than most think.

The article makes no mention of a replacement match or what's next for Hughes now. I'd bet they'd add another fight but it'll be an under card fight.

Hughes did comment on the injury:

As of now, Matt Serra is out of the fight because of a herniated disc in his lower back. I believe Serra is actually hurt, so I don't think this is just a ploy not to fight. Before my Royce fight, I had three bulged discs that I was able to repair enough to fight. As everybody knows you never go into a fight 100%. So, I'm just going to continue to train until I find out what's next. -Matt
