The question was "Does he stand a chance?" and the answer is yes, but what are the odds? Probably 1% compared to GSP at 99%

You can't have everything. Where would you put it?

I agree - I like his chances as a winning coach better than as a contender for the belt.

Seeing as how he didn’t win against Chris Lytle, but was handed the decision because he's a fan favorite who will draw a bigger fight crowd, no I don’t think he has a hope in hell of beating GSP.

The UFC lost all credibility with anyone who watched that fight with a working set of eyeballs...unfortunately most "fans" have the memory of goldfish so the whole bullsh!t decision is long forgotten.

I actually thought the fight was pretty close between Serra and Lytle.

Neither did anything very impressive but Serra seemed to be more of the aggressor in the fight (i.e. he constantly went for the takedown but failed miserably).

Space bar broke?

And I have a gut feeling that Serra might surprise us all in this one.

Same way I saw it....plus Sera schooled the whole world on missed foot stomp!!...The jiu-jitsu couldn't jitsu is ass and the striker couldn't hit a grandma...a weird fight....but Sera did ''try'' the hardest...

I was absolutely unimpressed with Serra for the entire TUF show and his Finale match. He's a lippy weasel and needs to get "foot stomped!"

Georges St. Pierre will run right thru Matt Serra. I can see GSP winning by a late 1st round TKO or a early 2nd round TKO over Serra.
