Default SERRA TALKS RENZO DEBUT IN UFC

HE actually sounds somewhat respectful towards Matt Hughes.

Quote:
Mixed martial arts legend Renzo Gracie is expected to make his Ultimate Fighting Championship debut against former welterweight champion Matt Hughes at UFC 112 on April 10 in Abu Dhabi.

Renzo Gracie black belt Matt Serra discussed Gracies Octagon debut and how much his mentor has meant to him with MMAWeekly.com.

Hes that instructor that regardless of the odds, or size of the guy, or whatever the case may be, he was on the front lines. Hes not one of those instructors that say, do this, hopefully it will do well for you in a fight. Hes out there seeing what works, said Serra. Hes in the cage. Hes sweating and bleeding. Hes hurting people and hes getting hurt. Thats what I admire about Renzo.

Gracie draws a familiar foe to Serra in getting Hughes in his first UFC bout. Serra lost to Hughes in his last outing in a razor close decision at UFC 98 in May.

I think thats a great fight. A battle of legends. Thats awesome, commented the former UFC champion about the Hughes and Gracie match-up. Im very excited about that.

The 35-year-old New York native expects his mentor to do well in his UFC debut.

I look up to Renzo, Serra told MMAWeekly.com Hes my instructor, my sensei. He did so much for me. He gave me a job. He took me under his wing. He let me corner him when he was fighting in Rings back in the day in Japan. He took me to Japan three times. The guy has done so much for me. He showed me the ropes, inside and outside of the cage.

The 42-year-old Gracie is on a three-fight win streak, but hasnt competed in three years. Still, Serra believes in his mentors abilities.

Hes in shape and I think hes going to do great, said Serra. Hes got a lot of balls, a lot of technique, and the experience to back it all up. So Im very, very excited to see Renzo in there.

I just he doesn't talk any smack and refers to Matt as a legend.
He also doesn't say anything about thinking Renzo can win

You're right though Llama, he wasn't being disrespectful towards Matt like he usually is.
