Hughes vs. Serra expected April 2009

The much-delayed grudge match between former welterweight champions Matt Hughes and Matt Serra could take place in April 2009.

Hughes mentioned Monday on his blog that he will schedule his training for a fight sometime that month after talking to UFC matchmaker Joe Silva.

"This week, I talked to Joe Silva at the UFC and a possible date for Serra and I is in April. I don't know the exact date right now or venue. So, that is something I can look forward to and I can set up my training up for that schedule," Hughes wrote.

The two were coaches on "The Ultimate Fighter 6" and were supposed to meet on pay-per-view at UFC 79 on December 29, 2007, but then-champion Serra had to pull out due to a back injury.
