If Matt Serra Could Arrange a Last Fight, it Would be Against Matt Hughes

It looks like Tito Ortiz may have started something. Ortiz, who called out Forrest Griffin for his retirement fight, will meet Griffin Saturday night in the co-main event of UFC 148: Silva vs. Sonnen II.

Now, another ex-UFC champion wants to call his shot. Matt Serra, in a recent interview with Yahoo! Sports, said he would pick Matt Hughes for his final bout. Serra even went as far as picking a location for the contest.

"As of right now, I have nothing on the radar, and there's nothing planned, and I'm fine with that," Serra said. "But if I could choose my last fight, it would be against Matt Hughes at Madison Square Garden. That would be a beautiful thing."

Serra hasn't competed since a loss to Chris Lytle back in 2010, and is 1-3 in his last four fights. Included in that stretch is a decision defeat to Hughes.

Hughes, meanwhile, has dropped back-to-back fights to BJ Penn and Josh Koscheck. While he has yet to announce his retirement, he did hint that he was finished after the knockout loss to Koscheck.
