    Anybody?

    It could happen, but I doubt it.

    If you look at it from the MMAth standpoint, GSP is much better than Serra.

    If you look at it stylewise, which is probably smarter, it's just as bad. GSP as a stand up fighter is mobile and can use his long reach to fire shots from the outside. If it goes to the ground, GSP is very strong and can probably use that to nullify the skill advantage that Serra has.

    edit: the UFC 69 preview is up on ufc.com

    GSP also doesn't seem like the kind of fighter that underestimates either. It seems like he has taken every fight seriously, always comes in incredible shape.

    I don't think Serra is a pushover but I just think he won't pull out a V over GSP :( God I really want a Serra/Hughes match though :x:

    I think it'll be interesting since Matt Serra's BJJ teacher is Renzo Gracie and GSP has been training with Renzo's team quite a bit so I want to see how this turns out if it goes to the ground.

    i see them both standing in first minute with GSP landing shots at will. Serra will then close in with a clinch trying to take GSP down, only to get taken down himself by GSP. Then the fight will end with brutal ground and pound.

    GSP wins by TKO in 3 minutes and 22 seconds of the very 1st round.

    Serra should take a knee at the beginning of the fight and just scoot towards GSP looking for a take down. :mamoru:

    luck is the only chance he's got imo, so as far as a legitimate shot goes, no.
