    Yeah bro, I’m all for defending your wife. Part of taking care of her is taking her to the room if she has, had too much to drink. If that dude was really wanting to take care of her, he should have taken her to the room and ordered room service for himself. Going to the Cheesecake Factory while she is passed out drunk should not be an option.

    Yeah, if he was at cheesecake factory instead of a casino coffee shop you might have a point. Being drunk late night in a casino coffee shop is the entire reason they are open late night. Casinos funnel drunks into them.

    Serra was an asshole but because he likes pasta and is a hall of Famer he is allowed.

    It wasn't his wife's honor. She was passed clean out. It was his own ego.

    If you can't handle being laughed at a little bit you have no place venturing out in public.

    This is Matt’s side of the story:

    On Matt and Jim Norton’s podcast Matt gives the play by play details. He claims that the video he shot of the passed out wife had nothing to do with the altercation. He said the guy never saw him shooting the video and that the altercation didn’t start until later on.

    The altercation started when the drunk guy starts getting loud with the wait staff. He even throws stuff at the wait staff. At that point Matt still didn’t get involved yet. Matt was with his family and actually wanted to hurry up and get his wife and kids out of there. Then the drunk guy starts yelling at the waiter as he is at Matt’s table. He gets in the waiter’s face and then Matt stands up to make sure the guy doesn’t get physical with the waiter. That’s when they exchange words and the drunk guy challenges Matt to a fight. He even takes his shirt off and postures like he’s about to swing on Matt. Then Matt says he gently drags him to the ground.

    The Drunk dude made his bed. He and his wife were way passed their limits and were in public. If they were in the privacy of their own home then I'd totally agree with you but if you're in public and act like a fucking idiot, you deserve what you get. The dude stepped to Matt Serra and got what he deserved. He's lucky he didn't get lit up.

    Don't poke the dog if you're not ready to get bit.

    If Matts account is true, then I have no qualms but for everyone saying you should never be that drunk in public, have you been to Vegas? Go to any coffee shop after midnight (or outside a dayclub during the afternoon) and it is commonplace/encouraged. It's part of the hospitality experience here. The wait staff is used to it and I'm certain they have strict procedures in place as well as security staff to handle unruly guests. (Which makes me think that Matt's story isn't fully true, if the guest was that unruly a station property wouldn't have just let him be)

    Reading the UFC forum these days I’d say that’s a certainty.

    Matt was very calm.

    You wouldn't do a fucking thing BUT MAYBE ask Matt for an autograph. You would not say shit to anyone who you think would kick your ass so you would not say shit to anyone.

    If your wife is really drunk, go take care of her, don't mind the people around.
