Matt Serra did beat GSP. I really love these "that would never happen" enphatic remarks coming from MMA fans.

You cannot even try to compare Jones records against Shogun's. Jones is the best now, no doubt about it, but still has a lot to prove to make history on his behalf, like adding 10 KO/TKO to equal Shogun's numbers. Great potential, but just silly and groundless compare his just starting career with someone that is already a star for his achievements. One loss at this point could change everything.

I think a devastating loss would only do Bones some good. Learn him some humility. And I think it would actually make him an even better fighter.

Sorry, your post is right up there. You never said or suggested stamina issues, only reach advantage. Read your post again and get Alzheimer treatment asap.

Probably right I wholeheartedly wanted to see that H-bomb land.

Man that really is sad.

Looks like he sees Jones walking towards him and is so scared he put his head down and tapped.

Fine. I thought it was common knowledge that the UFC Shogun is a far cry from the Pride Shogun, that AND the reach disadvantage to Bones.

And get rid of that hostile tone of yours and learn to write "treatment", asap.
