So you think you’re just going to stroll down to Renzo Gracie‘s gym, stick a microphone in Matt Serra‘s face, and do some boilerplate interview about how training’s been going, what he expects in the fight, blah, blah, blah for four minutes? Naw, son. "The Terra" don’t play that. Strap in, you mamaluke, because you’re in for fifteen minutes of hilarity. In this talk with Ariel Helwani, Serra discusses his beef with Matt Hughes, his upcoming showdown with Frank Trigg, the second fight with GSP (where, he seems convinced, Helwani was booing him), and how disappointing it is that you can’t buy one of those Triggonomics shirts anymore.
This freaking guy, you know what I’m saying? Forget about it. There’s not a more entertaining interview in all of MMA.
The oddest part seems to be Serra’s fixation on "Fox News Fight Game" host Mike Straka. Apropos of nothing, Serra blurts out at the 8:10 mark, "Straka wears lifts." Not that it would be surprising in the least, but one can’t help but wonder, how did he come by this information? Is it true? If it is true, what does Straka do when he meets a woman while wearing his lifts, and then is forced to drop down four inches when the relationship inevitably progresses to the take-your-shoes-off-so-we-can-have-sex stage? Do you think he constantly finds excuses to keep them on? If so, do you think those excuses get really, really weird after a few months?
All good questions, some of which are answered after the jump, and some of which we’ll just have to wonder about.
