Biography
Serra was born to an Italian-American family in East Meadow, New York. His father is a retired policeman in New York City and his late mother was a stay-at-home mom. Serra's father was enthuasistic about mixed martial arts, and Matt first began Wing Chun at an early age. Serra went to East Meadow High School, and had already enrolled in the USMC Delayed Entry Program before graduating. However, Serra got into a physical altercation at work in a local pizzeria during which he bit off the other participant's ear, leading into disfigurement charge.
Fighter Trivia
Serra co-owns a Brazilian jiu-jitsu school in Huntington, New York with his younger brother Nick. He currently trains with Ray Longo and trains fighters such as former UFC middleweight champion Chris Weidman, UFC bantamweight champion Aljamain Sterling, Gian Villante, Pete Sell, Luke Cummo, and Ultimate Fighter Live Finalist Al Iaquinta. After being absent from Aljamain Sterling's corner for UFC 259, Serra announced that he would be retiring from cornerman duties moving forward, although he would still remain as head coach for Serra-Longo Fight Team.
