ok .... there have been alot of upsets over the years...... but overall it has to be the GREATEST upset in UFC history
which is most definatley Serra over GSP, GSP was at the top of his game
and was not taking Serra lightly, no one expected a first round KO for Serra,
no one thought Serra could win that fight anywhere, some people didn't think
Serra could even win it on the ground, but now serra is confident Serra is good dont get me wrong but no one gave him a chance, Serra even said it himself, "This was probably the biggest upset in UFC history..This is the Greatest upset in UFC history not the 12 greatest upsets. Oh and Pulver vs. Penn(UFC35) was a close decsision, Jens didn't KO Penn,that would have been an upset, and i have seen all the old fights like UUJapan and UU Brazil
oh and at UFC 1 when Royce Gracie beat Gerard Gurdeau by a choke to become the first ever UFC tournement Champ, yeah remember when Liddell
won a UD over Suloev cause I do, remember when Tito lost to Frank Shamrock by sumbission due to strikes, I do....the point is you shouldn't come
on here and badmouth us sayin we dont know anything about the sport, if our thread is so pathetic why did you even have say anything
haha, WOAH...Slow down there, Ace...Lemme straighten this out...
If you think Serra over GSP if the best upset ever, that's YOUR opinion. But your reasoning behind it is kinda Messed up. First off, OF COURSE Serra said it's prolly the greatest upset ever, IT WAS HIS FIGHT! lol...Secondly, granted, Serra was an underdawg in most aspects of that fight, but the same could be said with just about ANY of the fight myself of others mentioned here. THe reason why myself and others say that's not the best ever is because you could make the arguement that GSP got caught. In my opinion, that's not as impresive as a fight where a total underdawg Dominates for an extended period of time, like randy and vitor, chuck, or tito.
Also, I don't understand your "it went to adecision, it's not really an upset" theory. Yeah, Pulver went to a close decision, against a guy who was AT LEAST as big of a favorite against him as GSP was agaisnt Serra. People thought BJ would finish him quick becuase he was so well rounded agaisnt a one trickpony, like pulver. THe fact Pulver could not only Go 5 rounds with him, but also win, was pretty damn shocking at the time. Decision wins can be JUST as big of upsets as knockouts, such as COleman and Smitch, or Randy and Tito. In fact, it was pretty amazing that Randy WAS able to dominate Tito at his own game for 5 rounds. And that's just one example.
But yeah, Maybe I worded it wrong, but I thinkyour getting the wrong idea. The thread itself isn't pathetic, but the fact that people were only mentioning 3 RECENT upsets is, As is the fact Randy and Royce were mentioned nowhere here. And as for this:
"if our thread is so pathetic why did you even have say anything"
I think you answered your own question, lol
So yeah, don't take offense, but the narrow choices of everyone in this thread before me upset me, becuase there's SO much more out there. THer'es been LOTS of fights like the GSP/Serra one where one guy wasn't given a chance, and yet that guy won in a manner nobody thought he would. Serra's was definetly one to remember, but with so many others out there that were just as good if not better, with much more time in the fight where they dominated the opponet, that's why I don't even rate the serra one top five. It's the upset of the year, not of all time.
