Wow, an excited, exasperated Serra was okay after his win over GSP, who can blame him, but a cocky, shit talking Serra!

This is bad news, i have a lot of respect for Matt Serra, he is a GREAT coach and a pretty decent fighters but now he's bad mouthin' a world class fighter like GSP....

I can't wait to see this beating live in montreal....

Bless him, even though he did beat GSP last time he thinks ha can do it again.

Here what he said.



what do you expect him to say? that GSP will destroy him? why is it that people make fun of the fact that fighters believe they are going to win...it just doesn't make sense to me. would you rather him say that he expects to lose? i would go into a fight with fedor thinking i am going to win. will i? no...but that doesn't matter. of course he thinks he is going to win he is a professional.

sorry to single you out SmileR it is not personal it is just that this happens a lot and it annoys me.

I get what your saying man, i suppose i should have wrote it less bias but i just can't see it going any other way.

You're right though i'll change it. My bad man.

Whats with the laughter? The last fight was no fluke, Serra straight up whooped his ass...there was not a lucky punch, there were a series of well placed powerful shots. Give Serra credit he knocked the shit out of "the elite GSP" fair and square

I guess I didn't see in that interview where Serra was shit talking or acting cocky more like confident. At the end of the day GSP got worked and tapped out by the better fighter that night, you can't take that away from Serra. Is GSP the future of the division...perhaps, but he still has to beat Serra in a dominating manner. As for "World Class" the only person he has really beat, not decisioned is Matt Hughes.

ok i am a Serra fan but that is going way too far. you have to recognize what GSP has accomplished. to say he hasn't beaten anyone world class is like telling yourself that cancer doesn't kill people. From the top 10, GSP has defeated Matt Hughes, BJ Penn, Sean Sher, Kos (people rank him high), Trigg (was probably #2 at the time) and Karo. GSP is a great mixed martial artist and imo is the best fighter in the division. i believe he will in fact defeat Serra and run the division for a while. and btw Serra KOed GSP he didn't submit him.

Big heads make for big targets. GSP learned that lesson from their first fight. Looks like Serra might fall into the same trap.

GSP has finished:

Frank Trigg by RNC
Hughes TWICE by TKO
Sean Sherk by TKO
Pete Spratt by RNC
Jay Hieron by TKO
and all of his decisions have been obvious unanimous decisions (excluding his battle with BJ Penn, which went split)

This world class fighter has more than proven himself.

Matts Serra last 6 fights up to the GSP fight were decisions (two of which were split decisions. and has not finished another fight since early 2002 (excluding the GSP, fight which he did deserve)
