  1. true mma says:

    You know when GSP reads this he is going to say ” I am not imprezzed by thizz.”

    • blzkjavn says:

      Funny thing is, Serra didn’t need his BJJ to make GSP tap out…

      • Bloodhound says:

        Oh? Last time I checked Serra got fucked up in their last fight and is mostly retired from MMA while GSP is the champ.

        The guy thinks he’s Rocky, he certainly got lucky and shocked the world and showed GSP is just another man, but come on don’t just blindly hate.

        • andy says:

          I also vaguely remember Serra tapping out to some knees GSP was throwing into his side.

        • GET RID OF FITCH says:

          What really sucks is Serra RUINED GSP forever. now he is afraid of his own shadow and avoids any and all contact other than jabbberfest-borefest. Fans are so tired of GSP barely figting and defending WW title mabe once a year. UFC fans are so ready fro a new champ like Ellenberger who wanst to fighta nd entertain fans. GSP doesn’t give RATS ASS if he ever entertains fans again. mark my words GSP has lost a huge amount of his fanbase despite what the BULLSHIT UFC Rogan-Goldie propganda HYPE machine tells everyone. Yes we all know his canadian fans could careless if he never fights again or cares about entertaining all they care about is GSP is still the ABSENTEE CHAMPION (PUPPET CHAMP) GSP backed out of 2 fights last year because he had a reality check and saw that Diaz and condit had his number. GSP only fights if he has 99.99999% of oddds stacked with him. Fighters like Condit, Diaz Ellenberger they will go after theri opponent at there best strength where as GSP needs 12 months to train to ONLY attack his opponnets weakest point. Greg Jackosn point fighting bullshit-borefest, somehwere deep deep way back in my memory banks i seem to remember GSP (PRE-GREG JACKSON) when once upon atime GSP was a REAL FIGHTER, now (when he actually fights) he is a point fighter PERIOD. oh I know thats only smart and he doesn’t need to entertain fans, thius sin’t abar fight. ai am so tired of the lame ass GSP nuthugger excuses why he is no longer a FIGHTER. why can’t you guys just admkit GSP is only in it for his sponsors and the $$$$. The man has NO DESIRE to ever put on ashow for fans EVER AGAIN. just admit already damn it

        • BigBossMalaka says:

          Why hasnt anyone been able to beat him since he lost to Serra ? I mean if GSP can fight the way he does and win every fight why cant anyone else do the same to beat him ? Boring ? defintely ! Effective ? Absolutely ! So you see , your entire post is flawed

        • So says:

          Why don’t you tell me how you REALLY feel?

        • TrigenicKin says:

          I’m going to pretend that I unerstood that grammar abortion.

        • kekekkeke says:

          GSP FANBOYS
          Y U SO MAD?

      • I fucked yo bitch says:

        funny thing is GSP tooled him in the rematch

      • GET RID OF FITCH says:

        Mastt serra is easily 220 lbs in that picture. da,mn 5’5″ 220 looks like a little butterbean. godda love matt serra though he is one hell of a nice guy who will always be known as the man that RUINED GSP’s career with a devastating KO and one of the all time UNDERDOG UPSETS. FACTS ARE SOLID without any disputes Serra forever made GSP a safe-point fighter who will never engage ever again

      • BigBossMalaka says:

        Funny thing is that Matt Serra has never gotten lucky again

    • gsp gay says:

      matter serra made gsp a *****

  2. the original steve says:

    serra looks like he lost a lil weight i saw him like 3 months ago in atlantic city and let me tell u the man was large

    • Ninja Oreo Dollop says:

      He needs to lay off the red meat.

      • GET RID OF FITCH says:

        No no no no Serra said he loves his pasta and being married and having kids. fact matt serra is anatural 150 lb fighter in his prime who KO’d GSP in a title fight fair and square and noone can ever disput that. however he ruined on e of the best fighters ever that night

        • Nick "Mount Everest" Diaz says:

          no no no no no non nono nono nonono nonononononnonono… u forgot “and meatballs”…. pasta aint nuthin without the meat rolled up into big balls…

  3. Stevo the great says:

    Ummmm….hey Matt Serra……when was your last fight? Oh yeah you are retired…..and if you aren’t you might as well be. You were here and gone in a flash. I guess this is good for you, but really what use is it if you don’t fight?

    • Dan the Lobstertail says:

      Why are u bitter??? Who are u? What have u done??

      • Nick "Mount Everest" Diaz says:

        he is stevo the great who just wrote to matt serra on bjpenn.com in the comment section in his hopes that one day mr serra will fall upon his ummmmm.. jibberish thoughts and questions and finally have his them answered to relieve him from his restless and sleepless nights… truly a sad story … deserves an LOL award

    • mike says:

      You do realise that matt serra was with the ufc a long time before the comeback Ultimate fighter show which was a while ago and showed off some sick bjj skills so not quite a flash a very talented and experienced fighter and coach

    • His last fight that I can remember was him beating down frank trigg.

  4. Nicky d says:

    Congrats Matty that

  5. Mr miyagi says:

    Confuses say competion not every thing daniel son

  6. Untitled says:

    Like a boss! Serra is the frickin’ man. It takes a beast to take GSP’s title and his confidence. I know this article has nothing to do with Georges but we all know Serra will be remembered most for that accomplishment. Congrats on reaching 3rd Dan

  7. Ted Bell says:

    This is important WHY!?!?! Whens the last time Serra has seen the octagon…2008? I just don’t remember because his only good fight was KOing GSP and thats it

    • mike says:

      He was with the UFC a long time before the Ultimate Fighter comeback show check out some of his early UFC fights before the show there is some crackers

      • Ted Bell says:

        I know he was in the UFC before TUF:Comebacks he never amazed me hes only good fight was when he beat GSP thats it…he was a stale cracker!

    • GET RID OF FITCH says:

      actually Serra has had alot of good fights in his career. like when he KO’d trigg. RUINING the MIGHTY GSP by KO is quite the accomplishment

      • Ted Bell says:

        I guess we all have our own opinions on fighters but I never saw serra as a good fighter he was just average. His only highlight fight was with gsp but that’s my opinion

  8. david says:

    wait does that mean hes gonna be a grandmasters someday?

  9. mike says:

    I think he should of dropped a weight class he would of probably had a better chance of winning a few fights

  10. jbeamazing says:

    the terror

  11. Edd says:

    Why does the certificate their holding say May of 2000?

    • Bobbie Dooley says:

      Just saw that! Wow they must be time travelers! Or Renzo might have alittle brain damage that he thinks its still 2000

  12. UFC VIDEOS says:

    heard renzo’s new gym in BK is sick

  13. true mma says:

    That isn’t shit Matt, GSP is a 3rd Dan in laying and praying.

  14. Jason N says:

    I;like Serra. would like to see him fight some more

  15. Ruben says:

    Has serra submitted anyone in the ufc?

  16. Thurgood Jenkins says:

    A decade ago: Kevin Dullanty at UFC 36. Triangle.

  17. Gabe418 says:

    1st Matt never tapped to knees, that was a ref stoppage and this is about a very exclusive bjj accomplishment…congrats to Matt and Renzo, I had the honor of meeting them and hope to roll with them very soon

  18. Tom Ryan says:

    Congradulations Matt!

  19. Zack says:

    All the people hating are the ones who are too lazy to accomplish anything for themselves. That being said sera looks like a pitbul in that pic and yes he did leave a perminant scar on gsps confidence. And for that we thank you Matt

    • jonsey says:

      u thnk matt for leaving a scar on gsp confidence??? since the serra fight gsp changed his style to bitch ass lay n prey.///if serra never got that lucky shot gsp would never have tturned into this muscle ass wrestler…i like the old gsp way wway beter..now he rips his muscles so big that tthere at there max always getting hurt…reallly gsp is the most innjured fighter in ufc….ufc would be smart to put diaz in there an take that belt so the ww champ would be fighting more then 1 time a year…dana would make moore money when the champ is actually defending his title///

  20. Rondo says:

    Congrats Matt on your 3rd degree black belt. And unlike get rid of Fitch,and his gay ass hatred rants about GSP,I can say what you did to GSP in the first fight was amazing,you shocked the world Matt, it wasn’t a fluke you TKO’d the greatest WW champ ever! That’s a fuck of an accomplishment,considering no one else has come close to beating him in nearly 5 years. You get to take all the credit for turning GSP into one of the most dominating fighters EVER!!!….suck it slow get rid of Fitch!!
