What's so unprofessional about not cornering your own guys? I think he had all the right not to try to go against his own guys. What's wrong with the cornermen they were given? The fighters picked them, if anything it's their fault if they picked a poor corner. They could've picked Serra's guys for his corner, I'm sure they would've done it; in fact I think I saw a couple in there. I do feel that Serra picked "unfair" match ups, whether he was playing favorites or not. But at the same time, what's "unfair." If those guys can't beat the opponent given to them, then they shouldn't be in the finals of the show.

i'm so dissapointed that their fight ain't happening, there's nothing better than watching a fight when 2 guys really do dislike each other.

Matt Hughes is no saint either, literally, IMO he crossed the line when he started pushing religion on his team.
Well actually, he didn't, He gave books to each member of his team and said if you want to read, then go ahead and read basically, he didn't say you have to read this, I think when he said, 'Who Would I be?' Was a joke..But if not, Then I can see what you mean.

I think Serra jokes about Hughes in a funny way while Hughes just acts rudely/mean. I mean hes even hurt a couple of his fighters by practicing too hard on them, AND they still lost 6-2. Serra is a good coach which is why most of his team made it.

Hughes might not have demanded that they read the Bible, but he shouldn't have given it to them anyways. There was no reason why he should have brought anything religious into their training sessions. There are a couple things that you don't bring up to people that you are unfamiliar with: politics and religion. I personally thought that this was in poor taste. Even if Hughes wasn't intending to offend, it came off that way. Props to Danzig for refusing to read.

Serra did many god things-

coaching
encouraging even Hughe's guys after matches...ok

but his constant childish attacks on Hughes have actually turned me quite a bit against Serra. It's just plain classless; sometimes make your point and move on.

Hughes would have packed Serra into a little ball of submission or knocked him out.
