... For him to come across the way he does is total arrogance.
I have never seen Serra talk like he's any sort of phenomenal fighter. He is confident, no doubt, but I do not see excessive arrogance from him. I have a feeling he annoys you, as he does many people. His voice, accent, and occasional abrasiveness can quickly turn people away from him, but if you listen to what he's saying, most of the time, he's not as arrogant as he may sound.
Who has he fought? Try GSP. Call it a fluke, but he beat him down. I have no doubt that GSP will take it back, but if that's not a top tier opponent, I'd be very interested if you'd care to enlighten me.
Oh, and he lost by decisions to Karo, B.J., and Din Thomas. He went the distance with these guys, and that is something to be proud of. Unfortunately, his only other loss was to Shonie Carter by the infamous spinning backfist only nine seconds from the bell in the third round.
