Repost from @mattserrabjj How do you spend the night before your @ufc HOF induction?!? You subdue some asshole drunk that was threatening waiters then tries to swing on you. #jiujitsu pic.twitter.com/u8tKHGFy6E— Renzo_Gracie_BJJ (@RenzoGracieBJJ) July 5, 2018
Soon to be Ultimate Fighting Championship hall of famer and former welterweight champion Matt Serra has been keeping busy since retiring from mixed martial arts back in 2010. On top of hosting the “UFC Unfiltered” podcast and assisting friend and former boss Dana White with his Tuesday Night Contender Series, the 44-year-old New Yorker found himself in a fight yet again on Wednesday night, just a day before his induction into the UFC Hall of Fame, but this time the venue was a Las Vegas restaurant.
Serra (11-7) witnessed an “a**hole drunk who was threatening waiters” and quickly jumped into action and subdued the alleged drunken man while controlling him in mount.
The Brazilian jiu-jitsu black belt attempted to calm the irate man down before finally letting him back up once authorities arrived on scene. Serra could be seen laughing as the man below bellowed “I’m gonna f**k you up! I’m pressing charges right now! I’m an attorney!” in a video he posted on his Instagram account.
“How do you spend the night before your @ufc HOF induction?!? You subdue some asshole drunk that was threatening waiters then tries to swing on you. #jiujitsu” Serra wrote in the video’s caption.
The former welterweight champion, who won the title back in 2007 after one of the biggest upsets in MMA history against Georges St. Pierre, was in Las Vegas for his induction into the UFC Hall of Fame on Friday.
Serra will be inducted alongside fellow former UFC champion Ronda Rousey and UFC creator Art Davie at Thursday’s Hall Of Fame ceremony during the promotion’s seventh annual International Fight Week.
