Discuss.

You're right. Even when I say someone is going to get killed, i usually follow up with "but anything can happen".

If he did win I don't think that he would be champion for too long.. He would lose in a rematch, or lose to hughes or penn or whoever else got a title shot.

The only title match I have seen more lopsided then this would be Riggs v. Hughes. I give Serra no chance in this one. He does not have the size or the strength necessary. If he tries to stay in close like he did with Lytle he will be punched out. If he takes GSP down once, I will give Serra credit.

Also, I am not a Serra-hater. I wish him well at 155 but there is just not an opening in GSP's game for a 5 foot 6 dude to exploit. This one will be a short humane 1st round KO.

A groan of tedium escapes me...

To say Serra has no chance is just BS. Of course almost anybody would agree that he's gonna get whooped but Serra is no joke. 1st round victory for GSP but I see Serra putting up the same amount of fight Hughes did if not better. Serra's knows no to strike with him and after many takedown attempts Serra just might get him down eventually. GSP TKO RND 1

I think Dana will sh!t his pants before you!
Anyways, that would be something if Serra beats GSP! That would make BJ's win over Matt Hughes look like a minor spectacle! Rocky Balboa would have to give his greatest underdog title name to Matt Serra!

You forget that this isn't just some brutal sport where everyones out to kill each other. Its much more like a game of physical chess.-looney liam

I am Canadian and I do not share those feelings. If St. Pierre was an American, I would still cheer for him because he is an awesome fighter.

It is ignorant to wish for a fighter to win because he simply happens to live where you live!

if Serra wins, i hope GSP has no concussion and has a speedy recovery to the whiplash as he must have slipped and fell on his head ending up knocking himself out. so i guess since it would have to be some fluke accident GSP would have to get an immidiate rematch and we wouldn't have to worry anymore on who Serra should face.

...unless Serra is just an extremely lucky guy and wins the rematch as well somehow..then who knows what would happen

Yeah, I think it's amazing how little chance they're giving Serra to pull off the win. GSP is obviously the heavy favorite, having just decimated the longest reigning Welterweight champion, but I never thought I'd be reading articles in the Toronto Sun about how Serra has no possible chance of winning, as well as questioning whether he even deserves his shot.

I'm not completely blowing Serra off, although I'm just another person to add to the list that thinks GSP will beat him. I'm just not counting out, there's always that chance of a small slip or mistake, and Serra is all over it with a submission.

i'm kind of questioning that as well. his last few fights have all gone to decision, i'm not sure what he's done to deserve a shot more than any other WW. personally though, i think Dana wants to feed GSP an easy win so Dana can keep a Hughes/GSP rematch for the title in the cards. If Serra manages to hang with GSP, win or lose i will be forced to admit he is a good fighter.

IMO i dont think he deserves a title shot yes he won in TUF 4 but first off i dont think he won agianst lytle in that fight second i just see him being handed a title shot more of a gimmick for TUF4 than anything else if he actually beat any of the top fighters in the WW divison then itd be a different story

that being said GSP is gonna kick him in the face so hard it'd be like he tryed to kiss the express train

I never said Serra was a better fighter genius. What I said was that if Serra were to beat a fighter like St. Pierre, in what ever fashion be it KO, Submission or Decision.
