The following are highlights of a new Matt Serra interview from MMA Junkie Radio:

On retiring from MMA: "I know why it’s hard to walk away from the game. Trust me, I know."

On the excitement of winning in MMA: "That feeling – to know you’re never going to have that feeling again? Listen, man, when you have a good night, get a knockout, finish somebody – oh my God, it doesn’t matter anything that happens after that. That single moment, nothing can be wrong in the world. That’s where your head’s at. Cloud nine is an understatement."
