    People talk about how Serra is a nice guy and Hughes is an asshole, or vice versa...the truth is that they are both nice guys at times and assholes at times, it's largely situational.

    For example, Hughes usually has a little bit of disrespect towards his opponents abilities but is obviously a good person with the charity work he does. Serra is also usually nice to his opponents before the fights, but sometimes disrespects people for humour, remember "Captain Miserable"?


    Anyways, this made me laugh:
    "He must be a mental midget, which makes us about even since I’m a physical midget."

    Dot. My respect for him was based on his skill and his personality/attitude. All my respect for the latter is gone.

    i like GSP but i agree with serra on most parts...it was a bit suprising hearing some of the stuff GSP said in the interview...he's lying about something either way

    I like Serra. He's honest, and he doesn't bite his tongue.

    I think he knows it's all bullshit. GSP trains hard for every fight. At the very least he should be in shape to go 5 rounds on any given day just like Hughes is

    In my book.

    Serra +1 Notch
    GSP -1 Notch

    and he's so right that everything about GSP is a cliche. obviously he's not his public persona. we got a hint of that when he told matt hughes how he wasn't impressed after hughes beat bj. totally uncharacteristic but maybe that's just who he is

    GSP looked soft during his latest fight compared to how chiseled he always was before

    Meh, Serra is starting to sound like a bigger dick than Hughes actually. He'd better enjoy his 15 minutes of fame.

    I was surprised when I read that on Sherdog. Totally out of character for GSP...

    mma fans are like soap opera addicts :rofl:


    "omg did you hear what he said" "oh no he din't!"


    when theres so much on the line and you're so invested in your sport sometimes you say things you might regret later. Im sure GSP interviewing on his local radio station had to rationalize being beat and making excuses is his way of doing that. It's a natural human tendency. Its amazing you people will place 100% of your opinion in a person based on an interview snippet as if people weren't real people but PR machines. That goes for GSP or serra's comments.

    I don't think serra is a jerk, he just tells it the way it is.
