Chris Lytle and Matt Serra will rematch at UFC 119Posted on July 10, 2010, 09:37 PM by David Saucier
Former UFC Welterweight Champion Matt Serra will rematch the fellow TUF 4 participant Chris Lytle at UFC 119, on September 25 in Indianapolis.
MMA Junkie reports that a sources close to the promotion that the both fighters “positively” agreed for the match-up, as the contract between the two is expected to be signed anytime soon.
The last encounter between the two took place in 2006 at the TUF 4 Finale, where Serra defeated Lytle via Split Decision and earned an immediate title shot against Georges Rush St.Pierre. Matt Serra managed to upset GSP at UFC 69, but eventually lost his title in an immediate rematch at UFC 83.
The fight will take place at the famous Conseco Fieldhouse, with another rematch between Frank Mir and Minotauro Nogueira as a headliner. UFC 119 will be the first trip to Indiana in the promotion’s history.
