Video: Matt Serra, Joshua Fabia get into argument at breakfast during UFC 253 fight week

Joshua Fabia is not Matt Serra’s “type of guy”.

In a recently-released episode of “Dana White: Lookin’ FWD to a Fight,” Serra and Fabia engaged in a verbal back-and-forth. The conversation occurred after the founder of the “School of Self-Awareness” approached the UFC Hall of Famer at breakfast to air a grievance.

Fabia had taken exception with an interview where Serra allegedly failed to mention him by name and used a condescending tone when talking about him. Seemingly feeling disrespected, Fabia called Serra out while he was eating with former UFC fighter Din Thomas.

The verbal altercation was captured on video by Thomas.

“When it was brought up in the interview and they asked you about me, you were able to see my name. You know that they are talking about me. You’re actually saying on a camera, like, you’re disdained with me so much that you can’t even same my name, bro. That’s kind of cold.”

Though Serra voiced his respect for Fabia’s fighter, Diego Sanchez, he didn’t take kindly to Fabia’s claims.

“Like I told you earlier, I don’t even know your name,” Serra responded. “What’s your name again? Joshua, OK, good. (From) the ‘School of Something or Another.’ I understand you. Listen, you know why (I’m talking like this)? Because my friends and I are having breakfast and you try to come over here and make some kind of grandstand.”

After telling Fabia that Sanchez’s fight vs. Michel Perreira “looked like (expletive),” Serra continued.

“This is not going to get any better,” Serra said. “Do your thing. Good luck with you. I hope you make some money off of Diego. Do what you gotta do and that’s it, bro. OK? (You’re) not my type of guy. Do your thing.”

Fabia’s unusual training methodologies have caught the attention of many inside the MMA circle, though Sanchez (30-12 MMA, 19-12 UFC) and longtime UFC fighter Stephan Bonnar have high praise for Fabia.

Sanchez, 38, takes on Jake Matthews (16-4 MMA, 9-4 UFC) on the prelims of UFC 253 on Saturday.

UFC 253 takes place Saturday at Flash Forum at Yas Island in Abu Dhabi. The main card airs on pay-per-view following prelims on ESPN2 and ESPN+.
