Matt Serra vs. Georges St. Pierre for UFC Welterweight Title in Montreal in April

Interim UFC welterweight champion Georges St.-Pierre will take on fellow welterweight champion Matt Serra in St.-Pierre's home town of Montreal in April.

Although UFC hasn't made the announcement official, Serra seems to be indicating that it's a go:

"I'm definitely up for that," he told The Canadian Press in an interview.
Serra's last fight was an upset of St. Pierre to win the title at UFC 69 in April of 2007. He was then scheduled to defend his title against Matt Hughes last weekend, but a back injury forced him to miss the fight. The UFC then put St.-Pierre in against Hughes for the interim title, and St.-Pierre won. Those odd circumstances give both Serra and St.-Pierre a legitimate claim to the title. They'll decide who the real champ is in April.
