This past Saturday was a night of ups and downs for many fighters. On the downswing was former UFC Welterweight Champion Georges St. Pierre. Following his triumph over longtime champ Matt Hughes, St. Pierre was making the first defense of his title against Matt Serra in Houston, Texas at UFC 69.
In one of the biggest upsets in recent memory, Matt Serra surprised many, not just by defeating St. Pierre, but in the manner he did so… with his striking. But St. Pierre is a young fighter who has a long career ahead of him if he so chooses.
Heath Herring made his Ultimate Fighting Championship debut in a forgettable fight with Jake O’Brien in Florida. A Texan, he returned to the Octagon in Houston to face Brad Imes. Though he wasn’t able to put Imes away, Herring returned with a much more aggressive attitude and dominated en route to a unanimous decision that had Texans cheering.
Tonight, St. Pierre and Herring join Damon & Jeff on LIVE on MMAWeeklyRadio.com at 6pm PT / 9pm ET.
