Serra/St. Pierre Official for April; Lyoto Machida Offered Fight Against Tito Ortiz

NBCSports’ Mike Chiappetta reports that Matt Serra and Georges St. Pierre will meet again in April. The welterweight match-up will be about a year after GSP lost to the now inflated Serra. As you may recall, Serra was to defend his belt against Matt Hughes at the recent UFC 79, but had to drop out due to injury. GSP promptly jumped at the chance to take on Hughes for a third time, beating him easily for the interim (aka, bullshit) welterweight title. Serra said his back is getting better and he’ll be ready in April.

The April event – possibly to be on the 19th – will be in Montreal, the first UFC event to be held in Canada.

The other news out of the UFC this weekend revolves around Lyoto Machida. Yesterday, quoted Lyoto as saying “I would like to fight with Chuck. It would be a exchanging fight, standing up all time, but who will decide this is the event.” However, it appears Machida won’t be meeting The Iceman for his next fight. Machida’s manager, Ed Soares, confirmed to MMA Weekly that the UFC has offered his fighter a bout with Tito Ortiz. Machida has apparently accepted the fight and the ball is in Ortiz’s court to see if the fight will move forward. Machida most recently defeated the highly-touted and overrated African Assassin at UFC 79.

Ortiz last battled at UFC 73 and is currently waging wars on “The Celebrity Apprentice” where the Trumpster asked him if he was going to “get a prenup before you marry that?” – referring to Jenna Jameson. Whether it’s Tito or Chuck, looks like we’ll be seeing Machida in the octagon again soon. And the true welterweight champ will have his arms raised in April when Serra and GSP battle it out.

I am a huge fan of GSP and put my money on him. However Serra should not be underestimated. It will be an interesting fight with GSP kicking some ass.

I think the dragon will woop Tito, Chuck might give him a problem though.....who knows because The Dragon is the type of fighter that you can't make any mistakes against....and as far as the Terra is concerned he better fake another back injury because GSP is gonna stomp his face in....
