Its on, Matt Hughes announces that he will get a rematch with Georges St.Pierre on December 29 at UFC 79. I hate to say its an upgrade after Matt Serra was forced to withdraw due to an injury, but it is.
The fight will be for the Interim UFC welterweight title which makes it a five round fight.

I’m going to fight Georges St. Pierre on December 29th. I’ve got a couple reasons why I’ve made this decision and I will share those at a later time. I’ve asked for this to be for an interim title and if Matt Serra can’t fight in a year, then this would just be the title fight; but I don’t know if that is going to happen right now. I will keep you all posted.
EDIT: This WILL BE for the interim title, so it will be a 5-round fight. -Matt
