UFC 109 Opponents Matt Serra & Frank Trigg Trade Insults

– UFC welterweights Matt Serra (9-6) and Frank Trigg (19-7) are set to do battle at UFC 109 “Relentless” on February 6 in Las Vegas. However, the two have already started their respective trash talking towards one another. Former UFC welterweight champion Serra recently had the following to say regarding his match-up with Trigg:



“Frank is a dangerous guy. He’s an exciting fighter. I always thought that he would be an interesting guy to fight. On top of that, he just has one of those faces that you want to punch.

“Of course, I wanted [Matt] Hughes again. He came away with the decision in May, and myself and a lot of others disagree on that point. It was such a close fight. But it is what it is. I’m not going to sit here and talk bad on him because the UFC doesn’t want a rematch right now. We did that; we fought. That doesn’t take anything away from this fight. When Joe Silva called me with the Trigg fight, I said, ‘Hell yeah.’ It’s a matchup that excites me a lot.

“Look, when my career is over and done with, I’m the one who can look back and say that I was the champ. [Trigg] got there twice and choked both times — literally. I refuse to lose to a guy that has a fucking tramp stamp. You’ve seen his back, right? C’mon. No way am I losing to a guy that walks around with that.”

Trigg not only responded to Serra’s comments on his Facebook page by mentioning that Serra’s career was on “life support” and that he was “going to pull the plug”, but he also had the following to say:

“I became a fan of Matt when he fought Shonie Carter. He was brutally stopped in that fight but bounced back and picked up some big wins. He’s a former champ, so you have to respect that. He also carries a lot of brass but certainly not too much class.

“[Serra is] in the twilight of his career. Unfortunately, when he loses to me, he’s going to realize that his days as a fighter are going to be limited. He’ll be able to go ahead and continue fighting in smaller, lesser-known organizations if he wants. Hopefully, he does so at 155. He’s small to begin with, but he’s definitely too small for this weight class and too small for me in this fight, as well.

“This is a do-or-die fight for me. If I lose this one, I’ll definitely be out of the UFC, but that’s not going to be the case. This fight will go where I want it to go. I know Matt is good on the ground, but if I want to put him there, I will. He’s going to have a lot of trouble trying to take me down. He might have more knockout power, but I have better punching power. Matt is a tough guy, but I’ll have no problem finishing him off. This one won’t be left in the judge’s hands.”
