GSP is to quick and to strong for Matt. I like MAtt, but GSP is step up from the competition that Serra is use to fighting. Matts a good dude. I just think he's in above his head for this one

fight starts

they circle for a (short) while

serra eats a few and moves in for the clinch

he tries pushing gsp against the cage, doesnt work

he grunts a lot, in his long island accent, trying to force one of his awkward takedowns

gsp throws serra to the mat and either

a) works him ala gsp-trigg or

b) stands up, and feeds him punches while keeping distance until serras face looks like hamburger meat and his corner throws in the towel


variable outcome - serra gets caught by a spinning backfist and his head explodes (its filled with lasagne) and everybody is happy.

gsp is such a good fighter he only needs one leg to fight a guy like serra. dont get me wrong serra is a good fighter but he is nowhere near gsp level, id personally like to see him fight hughes.

I doubt serra even wants to fight GSP. Serra needed the exposer of TUF to get his name back in the game. fighting GSP is just the price of getting known among the new fans.

of course serra wants to fight GSP. its a huge opportunity for him, and hes a gamer. does he want to stay at 170? probably not, but a title shot, big payday, huge exposure as the main event on a card, and a really good chance to see where he really is against a top level fighter.......yup, he wants to fight GSP.

Serra doesn't have much of a chance, he's going to get KO'd in the first round. It's an easy win for GSP.

Good post; these are pretty much the same reasons Eddie Sanchez is fighting CC. Most any fighter would love to have an opportunity like that. Nothing to lose at all, and if they do pull off a win imagine all their new fans lol. Even if they lose but put up a good fight they'll gain respect from the fans for hanging with a world class fighter.

Yeah, I wouldn't apply the same logic to Sanchez/CC though... I mean, GSP won't literally murder Serra, whereas Mirko... who knows...

First death in the UFC -- Eddie Sanchez?

GSp in the 1rst. It sucks because Serra is a very good fighter, but this is obviously out of his league, and especially his weight class. They should have lethim have his title shot at 155.

If he puts in a good performance and loses i'd expect to see Serra at 155lbs once again.
