Todays fighter have the opportunity to fight much more often than the older fighters on that list. I used to be happy when the UFC would have 4 shows a year. Now there are tons more than that which is great. It just helps the younger fighters build their win totals much quicker than the legends of this sport could.

Matt will probably retire after Serra if I had to make my guess. He seems to be really enjoying his fame now after working hard for so many years I can't blame him.

That would be pretty cool if he got into trick shooting like Nate mentioned. But there aren't many fights that make sense for Matt after Serra. Unless smashing Serra reawakens Matt's competitive wish( Praying for it ) for another go at the belt.

Nah.. I would like to see Matt fight Koz.. and Karo.. then (if not sooner) get a title shot again.. hell UFC should owe it to him.. too fights on short notice, and one to a guy that can't make weight.

So in my world... Serra, Koz.. then a title shot!.. I would like to see him fight Karo.. cause he is really needing his shot.. but after testing positive for pain killers.. I don't know.

I thought Matt said no more title runs....maybe I'm wrong.

I bet if he beats Serra he retires...just a hunch.
