I know, and that is probably why he won. I think GSP preped so much for the take down and ground game that he was God smacked when Serra did not take him down or lock up....how do you prepair for a fight that goes the opposite of the way you are sure it is going to go??

i dont think GSP was too worried about the take down. i'm guessing if he was concerned then he wouldnt have been throwing so many high kicks.

Good point, I am still trying to figure out what the hell happened! No game plan and he got schooled big time by a grappler...in striking! :shock:

He tried to do what he did against Matt Hughes. Serra probably studied that fight... but none of this matters if the fight was FIXED. :)

Don't blow a fuse Kensei; he got caught- it happens.

I know, I know...but it sure would go a long way to ease my mind to find out how and why! :lol:

Royce was unstoppable in the early days of the UFC, but he never evolved into a different fighter..

That is still my favorite Gracie fight. I thought Sak was so funny and then to beat on Gracie like that...Classic!

I lost so much $$$ on that fight. I'll never forgive Royce for rolling over and letting Country ass rape him like that. Seriously; Twinklenuttz Trigg gave Hughes a harder time than Royce.

The reason is that Royce never evolved.. He stuck on his old school BJJ and never supplemented it..
