According to a recent UFC announcement, Matt Serra sustained an injury earlier this week in training for his upcoming UFC 79 fight against Matt Hughes.  While training at his Long Island NY gym, Serra fell to his knees in excruciating pain and was rushed to the hospital.  Serra suffered a herniated disc in his lower back – for those of you who are unfamiliar with this type of injury, the pain can be crippling – especially if it’s pinches the sciatic nerve.

“This is the hardest thing I’ve ever had to do,” said Serra. “I’ve never had a back injury before; I could hardly get off the MRI table. There is no way I can train through this, and I’m devastated, especially because this was such an important fight. I was looking forward to fighting Matt Hughes. All my training was going phenomenally until Monday – All I can do now is to get better and to fight again as soon as possible.”

Chuck Liddell vs. Wanderlei Silva will still be on for UFC 79.  As for a replacement for Matt Serra, most likely the fight will be put off until Serra recovers. To read the full UFC Article visit UFC.com.
