Let me put it this way:
How many people are giving Chris a chance of winning?
And how many people gave Serra a chance of beating GSP?
I understand the term "upset" can be taken in all kinds of ways. I agree that Silva losing to anybody outside of Bones would be an pretty big upset... and pretty upsetting for a lot of us. That's one type of upset. However, Serra beating GSP is what I would call a proper upset. Buster Douglas proportions. Totally incomparable to Weidman beating Silva in my book.
