Serra is def not the best. Just because he has the title, doesn't he is p4p the best fighter in his weightclass. I'd still give that honor to GSP. Why? Because I am confident he'd beat Serra in a rematch.

In two years, GSP went undefeated including Penn, Hughes, Trigg, Sherk and Jason Miller.

Serra lost to Parisyan before beating Spratt, Carter and a close decision to Lytle (which most feel he lost)

You have to count more than one night.

Kudos to Serra for the upset, but I still think GSP beat shim 95 out of a 100 times.Still, it's always cool when a likable guy like him pulls off a big one.

Very difficult to decide who is number one now, based on personal opinion. I have to say Hughes moves back up based on his dominating win over Lytle, who as stated "many thought beat Serra in the final" and GSP just lost to Serra.

1. Hughes
2. GSP
3. Serra
4. Kos
5. Diego

As a fan, GSP is still #1 in my opinion. I'd put my money on him every time. This sport is awesome in that anything can happen. There are a ton of variables. As far as rankings go, the UFC doesn't seem to have any. If they like you, or you are on a hot streak, or you switch over from Pride, you get a title shot. GSP will get a shot again soon. I see Hughs v. Serra. I see Kos v. GSP. Winners fight. Anything can happen, but one thing is for sure. GSP is still a top contender. Serra has the belt now. I think he will always come up short being the favorite- as far as odds go. Gotta love the guy as a fan though.

Great fighters are made by how they handle defeat. Hughes made a tepid return to the Octagon after losing to GSP. He won but he didn't look good. GSP will establish or re-establish his greatness by how he bounces back after a loss that no one saw coming. I think that he'll eventually prove that this loss was a fluke and challenge Serra to a rematch. I have a feeling Hughes will get the next title shot, so GSP's vengeance might not have any real implications. I've bumped GSP in my rankings, but I have a feeling he'll be back on top soon enough.

Hughes moves back up based on his dominating win over Lytle,



Dominating? I don't think so.

Would definitely still have to give the honors to GSP. The long road he took to become champ completely overshadows Serra's TV show shortcut to the title shot. Saturday night was the definition of a "puncher's chance" and Serra got it. I don't believe that means he is the complete better fighter. If GSP loses his next fight, then sure, he is knocked off of the top rung despite what happens as it shows negative consistencies.

That was far from dominating! It made me think Hughes is on his way out.

Even though it was boring with not much action he controlled the entire fight.

It was domination. You must be retarded if you think Lytle even came close to winning.

Get real people.

There is a fine line between winning and dominating.

The reason the fight went to a decision was that Hughes could not finish Lytle.

Ive kept gsp at number 1, and putt serra in at number 9. It was a good victory for him, but i think hel loose his next fight, then every one will take him straight back out of the top 10. Hes a good fighter, but theirs alot of better more rounded fighters in the division. As for matt hughes dominating lytle, id say he did, he controled the entire fight and didnt look in trouble once. Still, i think gsp will beat him when they get round to a rematch.
