UFC 98: Matt Serra: Matt Hughes Has to Hide Behind Religion

The war of words between Matt Serra and Matt Hughes continues as their fight at UFC 98 approaches, with Serra now saying that Hughes "has to hide behind religion."

"I don't like the guy," Serra says. "I don't think he's a good guy. He's such a d**k of a person that he has to hide behind religion, you know, to make himself feel better."

Serra and Hughes have clashed over religion in the past. When the two were opposing coaches on The Ultimate Fighter, Serra criticized Hughes for giving his fighters a homework assignment of reading a passage from the Bible. So this isn't exactly new. But with each passing day the two of them continue to say more derogatory things about each other, and that gives an already big fight a little more heat.
