Ah … people and their dumb senses of right and wrong. Check this out:
When his best friend lost the season’s first fight and opted to leave the “The Ultimate Fighter: Team Hughes vs. Team Serra” early, Matt Serra threatened to sever all ties with Joe Scarola.
Saying he stayed true to his word, coach Serra confirmed on Tuesday that he no longer has a relationship with Scarola, who was his first-round pick on the Spike TV reality series.
Yes, staying true to your word is ‘honorable’ … but hey, whatever happened to staying true to your friends? And Joe Scarola was more than Serra’s friend … Joe was also an assistant coach at Serra’s jiu jitsu school.
Overall, I don’t really give a fuck how much of a sloppy vagina Joe Scarola turned out to be. You’re either the kind of guy who accepts their friend’s faults or the kind of guy who turns on their friends when the going gets tough. No matter how ‘good’ Matt Serra is coming off and how ‘team-centered’ he’s trying to come across as, I’m not about to forget the fact that he’ll turn on you in a second if you fuck with his shit.
Of course, this isn’t the first bit of two-faced bastardry that Serra has been involved with. Serra’s entire disliking of Matt Hughes was based on Hughes’ treatment of GSP. But then Serra had GSP barred from training with Renzo Gracie over some out of context remarks Georges even apologized for. Overall, the guy seems easy to make an enemy out of and pretty vindictive for a ‘nice guy’.
