    Matt vs Matt on the cover of Men's Fitness Magazine

    The temperature's rising inside the pages of December's Men's Fitness with Matt Hughes and Matt Serra facing off on the cover. The special gatefold cover of this issue is worthy of this historic matchup. All this excitement is paving the way to UFC79, one of the most anticipated fights this year especially coming off another hit season of The Ultimate Fighter where the two men served as competing coaches.

    The magazine went behind-the-scenes with Welterweight Champion Matt Serra and #1 Contender Matt Hughes to get an idea of how they live and how they train. Practical step-by-step exercises that help get Serra and Hughes into shape are accompanied by the real heat between these two arch-rivals. Check out this lengthy story about what makes these men great rivals and great fighters.

    I like how Matt Hughes has the Fat burn, and Matt Serra has no dietary mentions at all... no comment.

    i think maintaining in a weight class above the one you should be in shows that he has a great fitness program and works plenty hard. Just saying.

    i would love to see both of their diets and fitness regiments. It would be cool to see how hughes is able to maintain that size and still fight at 170, and how Serra can train like crazy and keep the size and muscle he needs to compete at 170.

    I see this being a much better match up for Serra (than GSP fight) and think he shouldn't be the favorite, but I dont see this being a blow out by any means.

    Its been said 1million times before but he matches up against hughes much better then he matched up against GSP.

    Im thinking he might have a decent shot at beating Hughes.

    I walk around about 175, and while Serra may look small on there, I'll be the first to say that he isn't.

    His neck and forearms and shit are enormous and he's strong as a motherfucker. He shows up to some of our tourneys and gives an occasional seminar at our school


    I think I was like 165 in this picture and he fucking dwarfs me even though he's way shorter:

    I had no idea who he was until TUF. I met him 3 or 4 times, but he always just kind of hung around in the background and shit. :dunno:
