Former UFC Welterweight Champion Matt Serra Proves He’s Still Got The Magic Touch as He Takes Down Drunk the Night Before His Hall of Fame Induction…

Matt Serra announced his arrival in Las Vegas in style after posting footage of himself subduing a drunk in a restaurant. The former UFC welterweight champion is in Sin City because he’s due to enter the UFC Hall of Fame.

One of the most popular personalities in the sport, Serra remains recognizable from the UFC Unfiltered podcast that he co-hosts with Jim Norton. He’s also a co-host of Dana White’s Looking For A Fight Youtube series and is close friends with the UFC president.

The 44-year-old might have a bit more of a belly than he did during his professional fighting days, but he’s due a bit of enjoyment in his life after an incredible fighting career, the pinnacle of which was beating Georges St. Pierre.

No Chance

Why do ordinary people think that taking on a professional fighter is a good idea? Ok, fair enough, it’s very possible that the guy didn’t know Serra was in the restaurant when he decided to cause a ruckus, disturbing members of the staff and customers.

Of course, Serra being the hero and all-around legend that he is was quick to intervene. He used his incredible wrestling and ju-jitsu to subdue the guy, who continued to struggle. Serra sat on top of the man in top position, controlling his hands and repeatedly telling him to calm down.

Security comes in eventually to intervene. The dude who takes over from Serra doesn’t seem impressed with the former UFC champion’s actions, while the drunk guy starts saying he’ll press charges. Alright, good luck with that…

Good Samaritan

While Serra definitely enjoyed being the center of attention – did you see the response of that waitress – security didn’t exactly react as you’d expect. He ended up having to de-escalate the situation as they walked towards him, telling them to ask the staff members what happened, instead of just kicking him out.

That’s the trouble with being a good samaritan!

Busy Man

The New Yorker is still very busy in the world of mixed martial arts. He holds a fourth-degree black belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu under Renzo Gracie. That’s elite level. His focus has also shifted to coaching, as he runs the Sierra Longo camp in Long Island.

A life level training camp, they’ve produced the likes of former middleweight champion Chris Weidman – who looks likely to get the next title shot against Robert Whittaker, former lightweight contender Al Iaquinta, Aljamain Sterling, and Gian Villante.

With someone of Serra’s technical standard and charisma leading the charge, how could you not be rising to an elite level under his tutelage? All before he’s due to enter the Hall of Fame…
