“It is crazy! Last year may have been an upset but, believe me, it was no fluke. What is a ‘lucky punch?’ Who do these people think I was trying to punch in the face if not Georges? Seriously – where did the luck come into it? I got him hurt and didn’t let him off the hook. Seriously, you tell me, if you aim at something, and then hit it time and time again, was it luck or did you just do what you were trying to do?… All the pressure is on GSP. He has to live up to all this BS about him, he has to step into the Octagon with a man who punched his lights out last time. I’m rematching a guy I beat inside one round, where’s the pressure? No-one is looking at me to do anything, for whatever reason, so there’s zero pressure on me.”

UFC Welterweight Champion Matt Serra makes the case for his rematch with Georges St. Pierre at UFC 83 in Montreal, Quebec, at the Bell Centre on April 19. It’s hard to disagree with the statement above, which is not to say that Serra is going to win. He just makes a good point.

I'm going with the guy who wrote the little insight under the interview.
I don't think Serra will win but its hard to disagree with what he's saying!

Serra better enjoy being champ right now. He's right. it wasn't luck. But he's just lucky it happened. At first, I thought Serra was a cool guy. But more and more, he sounds like Matt Hughes to me. GSP's knocking Matt Serra out in the second round.

More and more it seems to me that GSP fans cant deal with the fact that he hasn't lived up to his potential and the reality of it is He just might not. WAR SERRA!!!!!!!! It's going to be hard for GSP to knock him out in the second when Serra will do it in the first.Serra vs GSP - Serra wasn't dominating but he was definately dictating the pace. Caught GSP with a good shot, hurt him, and finished. To me that isn't a fluke.

thats exactly right.... Serra is right there is no such thing as a lucky punch, if you are trying to hit someone and hit them then you just did what you wanted to do..... Just like Pulver said when lozan KOed him... he was aiming for his chin and hit it, no luck to it


I'm sick of the GSP nut huggers saying that Serra got lucky when he plain bea the crap out of GSP... running over someone like they are an amature is not luck, he was prepared and did what he needed to do... there is no luck in that

Well in less than four weeks Serra will get a chance to prove it, but the fact remains that Serra was lucky in the sense that he NEVER should have been given a title shot in the first place.

I mean give me a f*cking break Serra, he barely squeaked out 3 crappy wins over a few has-beens and all of a sudden he thinks he is top ten material??

If Serra is so sh*t hot then WTF did he need a reality TV show called the "COMEBACK" to get a title shot??

What about the real WW competitors who have actually climbed the ladder step by step? I wonder what Karo and Fitch think about Serra getting a title shot?

he looked forawhile that he would become the top fighter in the world p4p eventually, so yes... he probably wont live up to his potential that we(as informed mma fans) would have thought or hoped.

He hasnt done well against strikers. Mark kerr was the same way.

I can assure you that every WW contender was effing livid that Serra got a title shot before they did!

Serra's back is gonna gimp out on him as soon as GSP takes him down.

I don't think Serra ever said up to that point he was top 10. That was Dana Whites brainchild. I'm just saying give the guy some respect.He got an chance and made the most of it. I give him major props. He's going to shock the world again

what striker are you referring to that he didnt do well against? I really hope your not referring to Serra as a striker

I used to think Serra was an alright guy but now he is just covering himself by saying if i lose i wasnt supposed to be there anyways, the pressure is on serra not to back up his first win but to back up all his talk, hes gonna take a beating from st.pierre i actually hope st.pierre just pounds him out for 5 rounds so i can watch serra take a beating similar to the 1 karo gave him, after that loss he will lose to hughes and then probably lose to some up and coming ww and then we won't have to hear this guys voice until Ultimate fighter 13: Comeback of the comebacks

Good read, I agree with Serra on this subject.
I think Serra wins this by armbar sometime in the middle rounds.

Serra and Penn, both took it to him in teh stand-up. And IMO both won.

Yeah it was no fluke he KOed GSP, because we know Serra has such a long list of KOs on his record.

I think GSP came in to that fight think no one could beat him and he didn't train like he should have. You add that with a lucky shot and you have a loss for GSP. But I think this fight will be even more one sided than the Hughes was with GSP ending the fight how ever he wants to end it.
