If Serra wins that means there will be serious climatic implications because hell actually froze over...
On a serious note, everyone always has a chance of winning however small. It is conceivable that GSP could slip, Serra mount him and land a quick elbow that would open up a bad cut or something. The odds of it actually happening have got to be something like 1000:1, but it's still possible. As for what it would mean? Besides a fatter paycheck and maybe more exposure for Serra... Nothing. Serra would just lose the title to his next opponent. You can't expect him to get lucky twice in a row. I'm not bashing Matt, he just has no business fighting at WW. He is way too small. His chance to win is to take his opponent to the ground and submit them. That just isn't going to happen against top-notch WWs like GSP, Hughes, Diego, etc...Those guys are too big and too good. In stand-up, everyone has a reach advantage over him and most have a skill advantage too. A guy like BJ Penn can defy his size and compete with and even beat the top WWs because he is just so naturally talented. Matt Serra cannot.
I like Matt Serra and I think he could conceivably hold a belt in the UFC, but not at WW. He has a much better chance at LW.
Edit: JWang I agree that Fedor's "loss" to TK meant nothing. I don't even recognize it as a true loss. It was an illegal strike.
