Will Matt Serra make the same mistake?
 
I think the pressure is going to be on Serra big time after Lutter failed to make weight! The UFC will probably check in on him to make sure he is doing everything right! But he really doesn't seem like the kind of guy who would f"k up like Lutter did! What are your thoughts!

No, because Serra's a natural lightweight. He's going up in weight instead of coming down.

I don't think Serra is that much of an idiot.

He says it's very hard for him to fight at lightweight. In the blog he was doing during TUF4, he said he could fight lightweight but he would walk around looking like Golum from Lord of the Rings.

Terra will NOT be that stupid!He will make the weight. I mean come on,a chance at being a world champ and you blow it over 2 pounds???? I know Luters' purse for the fight is already 10% less,it should have been 50%!!! Paul

No for 2 reasons, He is naturally that weight and 2 He is smarter than Lutter... he wouldnt go to a all you can eat resturant the nigth before his title shot.

Don't hate on Lutter. Serra will make weight because he walks around @ 170. Lutter has to plan out 6 weeks of cutting down and 2 days of starving to get to 185. And if he messes up anywhere along the way, it's all over. Heck, sometimes you just can't be that precise.

i think its cool that your defending lutter since everyone else hates him right now, but i disagree because its not one mistake he made he went to all you can eat sushi bar and ate to much. the night before the weigh-in!!

thats pure stupid.

A. it doesnt really matter because serra is losing no matter what.
B. i think he lives naturally below the WW limit of 170, so he'll just put on weight prior to the fight.
C. serra is a veteran, knows what he's doing, and hasnt had trouble with this before.


he'll be fine. until the fight starts of course.

Serra will come in at the right weight,he may nothave a good chance at beating GSP but he is a professional and professionals know how to prepare.
