Default Chris Lytle vs Matt Serra 2 Likely For UFC 119

Chris Lytle vs. Matt Serra added to UFC 119 in Indianapolis
by MMAjunkie.com Staff on Jul 10, 2010 at 3:35 pm ET
A welterweight rematch between Chris Lytle (29-17-5 MMA, 8-9 UFC) and Matt Serra (11-6 MMA, 7-6 UFC) will be featured on the main card of the as-yet-unannounced UFC 119 event.

MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) has learned from sources close to the promotion that both fighters have agreed to the matchup, and bout agreements are expected to be finalized shortly.

UFC 119 takes place Sept. 25 at Conseco Fieldhouse in Indianapolis.

The two longtime UFC veterans first met at The Ultimate Fighter 4 Finale in November 2006 following the lone season of the Spike TV-broadcast reality series to feature organization veterans. Serra earned a split-decision nod in the fight.

Serra, of course, earned a title shot with the win over Lytle and went on to shock the MMA world with a first-round TKO of Georges St-Pierre. Serra was crowned the UFC's welterweight champion with the win, though he would relinquish the belt to St-Pierre in a rematch at UFC 83.

Serra fought most recently in a UFC 109 TKO win over Frank Trigg.

Meanwhile, Lytle carries a three-fight win streak into the matchup his longest such run to take place in the octagon. An Indianapolis native, Lytle fought at this past weekend's UFC 116 event, where he made a claim for the evening's "Submission of the Night" with a combination triangle choke/straight armbar finish of Matt Brown. That claim ultimately fell short when UFC heavyweight champion Brock Lesnar tapped out then-interim champ Shane Carwin.

Despite the snub, Lytle's go-for-broke fighting style has earned him an astounding seven "Fight Night" bonuses in his past nine UFC fights.

I hope Lytle beats the every loving $h!t outta sarah.

I also hope the refs learn that lean-&-stomp isn't an effective offense.

Lytle takes this one. He's on a win streak against VERY tough dudes.
